I am currently crushing on the chicken bacon ranch and cheddar flavour combination and this recipe for baked chicken is a fabulous way to enjoy it! This recipe is super easy! You simply mix a ranch seasoning into cream cheese, slather it on top of chicken in a baking pan before sprinkling on cheddar cheese and baking until the chicken is cooked and the cheese is melted. The bacon is sprinkled on after baking along with some diced tomatoes and green onions! While the chicken is baking you can steam a veggie or make a salad to go along with it for one quick and tasty meal!
In this recipe I make a simple ranch seasoning with parsley, dill, chives, onion powder and garlic powder but you can also use a store bought ranch seasoning packet instead.
