Chessey Bacon Ranch Chicken Pasta


You need the following:

  • 8 ounces dried pasta – I used bowtie – you can use whatever
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ tablespoon butter
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
  • 2 cups 1% lowfat milk
  • 1 Package of Ranch seasoning – I used Hidden Valley
  • 1 cup low fat shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped, cooked turkey bacon

Directions: 

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add dried pasta and cook according to package directions. Drain water.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil over medium-high heat, in a large skillet. Add the chicken pieces, season with salt, pepper and season salt and cook until no longer pink. About 10 minutes.
  3. Once chicken is thoroughly cooked, add the butter. Once the butter melts, sprinkle the flour and packet of ranch seasoning over the chicken. Stir.
  4. Pour milk into the skillet, and continue to stir and cook until mixture starts to thicken.
  5. Stir in cheddar cheese and bacon pieces. Stir until cheese melts.

Add the cooked pasta to mixture and stir to combine. Serve immediately
