Chicken bacon ranch is a popular flavour combination and it works really well in a chicken noodle soup! The chicken bacon ranch flavour combination typically contains chicken, bacon, cheddar cheese, and ranch seasoning; parsley, dill, chives, onion powder and garlic powder. This recipe is pretty much just a basic chicken noodle soup that starts with the bacon, uses the ranch seasoning instead of the regular chicken noodle soup herbs, and has cheddar cheese melted into the broth! I like this soup to be nice and creamy so I add some cream cheese in addition to the cheddar cheese which adds an amazing tangy-ness and plenty of flavour! This chicken bacon ranch chicken noodle soup is an amazing alternative to regular chicken noodle soup that’s sure to please!
