Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on LOW for 5 1/2 hours without opening the lid during the cooking time (3 hours on HIGH works well in a pinch).

Bacon over slow cooker chicken

Shred the chicken with 2 forks in the base of the slow cooker and mix well into the softened cream cheese. Stir in the bacon bits then some of the shredded cheddar cheese. 

Cheese over chicken in slow cooker

Sprinkle the remaining cheese and cover for about 10 minutes before serving to allow for the cheese to melt.
