Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole

Chicken Bacon Ranch is a classic flavor combo that can’t be beat.  The name had me from the beginning and I had no doubt in my mind that it would be family approved.  However before reading the full recipe, I automatically assumed that the ranch meant ranch dressing.  Much to my surprise I found that it actually meant ranch seasoning and alfredo sauce.  Which I love even more!  I love that you flavor the chicken with ranch while cooking, instead of putting plain ole chicken in the flavorful dish.

So you start with crisp bacon and ranch flavored chicken.  Only to layer it in with noodles of your choice, alfredo sauce, and lots of Italian blend cheese!  Seriously what’s not to like??  It makes a full 9×13″ pan and is excellent served with a salad and garlic bread!  Perfect on a cold winter evening and is sure to please your whole family!
