  • 8 ounces pasta (such as penne or fettuccine)
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 6 slices bacon, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 packet (1 ounce) ranch seasoning mix (or homemade ranch seasoning)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions:

  1. Cook the pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. In a large skillet, cook the chopped bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet and drain on paper towels, leaving the bacon grease in the skillet.
  4. In the same skillet with the bacon grease, add the butter and minced garlic. Sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.
  5. Add the seasoned chicken pieces to the skillet and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 5-6 minutes.
  6. Pour in the heavy cream and chicken broth, then sprinkle the ranch seasoning mix over the sauce. Stir well to combine.
  7. Bring the sauce to a simmer and let it cook for 2-3 minutes until slightly thickened.
  8. Add the cooked pasta to the skillet, along with the crispy bacon pieces. Toss everything together until the pasta is coated evenly with the sauce.
  9. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over the top of the pasta and cover the skillet with a lid. Let it sit for a few minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  10. Garnish the Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta with chopped fresh parsley before serving.

Serve this creamy and flavorful Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta hot, and enjoy a hearty and satisfying meal that’s perfect for any day of the week!
