Anyone out there ever think,
“Ohhh what shall I make to eat tonight?”
That is the never ending story of my life!
I could cook almost anything if someone just told me what to make.
Help me out. Make me a menu.
Although making me a menu wouldn’t help because I’m sure whatever was up for that night wouldn’t sound good, so there I’d sit waiting on some inspiration.
Other people’s cooking is always better then mine for some reason.
Because I didn’t have to cook and mainly because I didn’t have to spend hours thinking of WHAT to cook.
I’m hiring a chef when I’m rich and famous!
One Sunday at a carry in lunch, I ate a delicious dish with chicken, bacon and pasta.
I looked at the pan to see if I could find a name, sure enough it was my very own Mother In Law.
She admitted the recipe was a new one that looked good from Pinterest.
I decided to find it and make it and it was just as good as I remembered.
Chicken Bacon Ranch
- 10-12 oz penne pasta
- 2 cups cooked and chopped chicken
- 3/4 cup cooked and crumbled bacon
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 cup flour
- 2 cups heavy cream (milk would be fine, too)
- 1 tsp. onion powder ( I only use a sprinkle of this)
- 1 tsp. garlic salt
- 1/3 cup ranch dressing
- 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Cook the pasta and drain. Add the chicken and bacon.
(I go a little heavy on the bacon because I like it)
Make the sauce next.
Melt butter. Add flour. Stir and add cream. Cook and stir till thick.
Remove from heat and add rest of ingredients.
Pour over pasta.
Add cheese and stir.
Bake 15 min at 350*
It seemed a little dry the first time I made it so I usually make a little extra sauce now.
HERE is where I found the recipe.
Their picture is a lot prettier. 🙂
Eat and enjoy!
This may be good but I’d still take a chef!
