How many times have you hear “Chicken again?” when you put dinner on the table. I mean chicken on one those this meats that is easy to make, can be bought on sale, but can get kind of boring. My kids like chicken but the only get excited when it is deep-fried chicken nuggets, preferably from a fast food chain. This easy chicken recipe is full of yummy goodness like cheese, so it will make everyone happy.
Easy Cheesy Ranch Chicken Pasta Recipe
8 ounces dried pasta (I used egg noodles)
1 Tablespoon butter
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
2 Tablespoons flour
1 packet dry ranch dressing seasoning mix
2 cups milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup chopped, bacon bits (or you can 1-2 slices of cooked bacon)
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil, and add your pasta to cook according to package directions. Usually about 10-15 minutes. Drain your noodles when done, and set aside.
- While water is boiling/noodles are cooking, bring your butter over medium-high heat, to cook your chicken. Make sure to cook until there is NO pink in any of your chicken, about 10-15 minutes.
- After chicken is fully cooked, add your flour and ranch seasoning to the skillet (on top of chicken). Pour your milk in as well, and continue to stir until it thickens. Stir in your shredded cheddar cheese (the more you use, the more cheesier it is) and bacon bits until cheese melts.
- Add your pasta to mixture, stir to combine and enjoy!
