I know this isn’t the best picture, but the family was so hungry so I took a quick one.  I thought I could take another one after dinner, but it was gone; super simple, so delicious…

Bacon, Ranch, Cheese Chicken

This Bacon, Ranch & Cheese Chicken is so simple to make and so delicious to enjoy!  It’s moist, flavorful, crunchy, and gooey all at the same time.  I knew the family would like this because of the flavor combinations, however I didn’t know they would devour the entire dish in one sitting. 

I used boneless skinless chicken tenders, however you could use boneless skinless chicken breasts and just cut them into smaller pieces.  The prep work for this dish is a matter of minutes which I love!  Next time I’m going to prep it, wrap it in saran wrap and then freeze it so I’ll have a dinner prepped for a busy weeknight. 

I served this with roasted cauliflower and salad; one of the kids sliced the chicken and made theirs into a big bacon, ranch and cheese chicken salad; I love that idea!
