Chicken bacon ranch casserole is a comforting and flavorful dish that combines tender chicken, crispy bacon, creamy ranch sauce, and pasta. Here’s a simple recipe to make it:


  • 8 ounces (about 2 cups) of uncooked pasta (such as penne or rotini)
  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup ranch dressing (homemade or store-bought)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (optional, for garnish)
  • Ranch seasoning mix (optional, for extra flavor)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  2. Cook the pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  3. In a large skillet, cook the chopped bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet and place it on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess grease. Set aside.
  4. Season the diced chicken breasts with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. In the same skillet, add the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the seasoned chicken and cook until golden brown and cooked through about 6-8 minutes. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  6. In the same skillet, add the chopped onion and garlic. Cook until softened and fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.
  7. Return the cooked pasta, chicken, and bacon to the skillet with the onions and garlic. Stir to combine.
  8. Pour the ranch dressing over the pasta mixture and stir until everything is evenly coated.
  9. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish and spread it out evenly.
  10. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese over the top of the casserole.
  11. Optionally, sprinkle some ranch seasoning mix over the cheese for extra flavor.
  12. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  13. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired, before serving.

Enjoy your delicious chicken bacon ranch casserole straight from the oven! Serve it with a side salad or some garlic bread for a complete meal.
