  • Make the Chicken: Place chicken breasts in a crock-pot or instant pot and pour in the chicken broth. Evenly sprinkle the ranch mix over the chicken. When the chicken is almost done begin the sauce. In a large saucepan melt butter over medium heat.  Then add in the heavy whipping cream and spices. Allow to cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Then add the cheese and allow to cook for 3 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • If using an instant pot, set to pressure cook for 15 minutes. If using a crock-pot cook on low for 6 hours or high for 3 hours.
  • Finally, place the cooked chicken in a casserole dish and pour the sauce over the chicken. Top with some shredded cheese  (optional) and the chopped bacon.
  • Place in the oven for 15 minutes at 400°F (204°C)
  • Make the Cauliflower Tots: Heat oven to 425°F (218°C)
  • Make sure to squeeze all the excess water out of the cauliflower rice. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.
  • Place all ingredients in a small mixing bowl, stir well and place mixture in the fridge for 10 minutes.
  • Use a small cookie scoop or tablespoon measure to form tots and put them on a parchment lined cookie sheet.  Bake 15-18 minutes until golden and crispy.  Move to paper towels to drain. Serve warm.
  • Notes: You can skip the 10 minutes in the refrigerator, but the Tots may not hold together well after baking.
