Bacon Ranch Chicken Recipe

I think every woman should have a few recipes that she can make for company.  The easier, the better, as long as it is tasty! Bacon Ranch Chicken is easy and tasty!   Bacon Ranch Chicken also a frequently requested recipe.

This Bacon Ranch Chicken recipe uses a slow cooker which makes it extra easy!  Serving it with egg noodles, biscuits, or rice make last minute preparations minimal, which is another bonus.

Bacon Ranch Chicken
2 tablespoons real bacon pieces (from jar or fresh)
1 teaspoon minced garlic 
1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch salad dressing mix
1 can of cream of chicken soup (or homemade cream of chicken soup)
1 cup sour cream
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
egg noodles, prepared

Spray slow cooker with cooking spray.  Place chicken in slow cooker.  Combine bacon, garlic, ranch mix, soup, and sour cream in a bowl.  (If you don't have time, just place on top of chicken.  Trust me; I've done it.)  Cook on low about four hours or until chicken is thoroughly cooked and fork tender.  Break into pieces or shred with forks.  Serve over cooked noodles.

Please Note:
~ If you need more time than the four hours, consider using frozen chicken breasts.  It is more liquidy, but still tastes great!
~ You can also prepare this in advance, refrigerate, and reheat for meal time.  It is still fabulous as leftovers.
~ Consider serving with rice or biscuits as an alternative to egg noodles.
~ Once you know that your family loves this recipe, I would recommend buying the ranch mix in larger quantities.  (I believe we have a four-pack in our pantry.)  Not only is it cheaper, but it's great to have on hand so there are no last minute grocery store runs.
~ Four breasts will serve about six adults in this recipe.

Like ranch?  Try Ranch Pork Chops (also in the slow cooker) or Ranch Ham Roll-Ups!

    I can't wait to get my slow cooker back. If I had it today, I'd so be making your recipe.

    Instead I shall anticipate it. (That looks so good. Have I mentioned that!?!)
