Bacon Ranch Chicken Pasta

Simple One Pot Bacon Ranch Chicken Pasta - a tasty, cheesy and creamy pasta dish filled with cheese, chicken and bacon!

Hey recipe lovers! Where are my pasta people?? Pasta is something I NEVER tire of. There are some many different recipes out there and it just never gets old with me. Do you feel the same way? If so, I’ve got another great recipe to add to your pasta loving list.

Today’s Bacon Ranch Chicken Pasta was super tasty and only took about 20 minutes to whip up. If you’re like me, and bacon isn’t your favorite thing in the world (I know, I’m crazy!), then you can omit it from the recipe. But I was outvoted on recipe day, and we decided to keep it in. After all, most people tend to think bacon makes a recipe better. Truth be told, I loved the pasta just as we made it – creamy, cheesy and simple enough for the kiddos to like it too.

Another huge plus about this creamy chicken pasta recipe is that it’s all made in the same pot. Now, we’re used to making things in several dishes, but doing it in one makes it that much easier. Add the fact that it’s cheesy and delicious, and of course, it’s a winner. 😉

  1. This was really good. I would just like to ask, or make the suggestion that while it is cooking, make sure you occasionally stir it. We did not and I just destroyed a piece of my cookware.
