One Skillet Chicken Ranch Pasta

One Pot Chicken Ranch Pasta: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

Pasta, chicken, bacon, ranch seasoning and cheddar cheese come together in this easy one pan meal. You do not even need to precook the pasta, it will cook in the pan with all the other ingredients.

One Pan Chicken Ranch Pasta
Ingredients:
4 slices bacon
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups shredded chicken
8 ounces rotini pasta
1 package (1 ounce) ranch seasoning mix
black pepper, to taste
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions:
In a large skillet, over medium high heat, cook the bacon on both sides until crispy. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel lined plate and drain all the fat, but 1 tablespoon. If there is not enough fat add some olive oil to equal about 1 tablespoon.

Add the garlic to the skillet and cook, stirring often until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in the chicken broth, milk, chicken, uncooked pasta and ranch seasoning mix. Season with black pepper.

Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is cooked, about 15-16 minutes. If the mixture is too thick add a little bit more milk to reach desired consistency.

Remove the skillet from the heat and sprinkle the cheese on top. Cover the skillet and allow the cheese to melt, about 2 minutes. Crumble the bacon on top and serve.

Enjoy!!!

I used my Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix, to help reduce the sodium in this dish.
