Cheesy Bacon Ranch Chicken

Cheesy Bacon Ranch Chicken

Cheesy Bacon Ranch Chicken did not disappoint and everyone absolutely LOVED the recipe for this super simple dish.

This recipe was at the request of my 7 year old son.

He LOVES helping in the kitchen with me 🙂

Cheesy Garlic Brussel Sprouts

Specifically he asked for chicken with cheese and bacon that he could dip in ranch.

I decided to add the mayo and ranch mix to keep the chicken moist and juicy.

How to Make Cheesy Bacon Ranch Chicken

Start with chicken breasts and dip them in a mixture of mayo and dry ranch seasoning.

You do have to use your hands to coat them evenly.

Spoon the rest over top.

Now I used a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, but I would recommend using a baking/ casserole dish instead.

Sprinkle a bit of kosher salt and pepper over top and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.

Remove the chicken from the oven just long enough to top each one with 2 slices of colby jack cheese.

Oh, and some cooked and crumbled bacon.

I cooked the bacon while the chicken was in the oven so it was ready to go.

Back into the oven for 5 more minutes and the cheese is ooey gooey melted to perfection!

Honestly I planned to dip this in more ranch dressing, but it didn’t need a thing!

Cheesy Bacon Ranch Chicken was juicy and full of flavor, and best yet everyone was happy at dinner 🙂
