  • Easy Cheesy Baked Bacon Ranch Chicken Recipe
  • 4 Chicken Breasts
  • 4 Cups Instant Potatoes
  • 1 Cup Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Crispy Cooked Bacon or 6 pieces
  • 1/2 ~ 1 tsp. Dry Ranch Dressing Mix ~ My all time favorite is Uncle Dan’s Ranch Mix
  • 1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese
  • Pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spray your cooking dish and add chicken breasts. I always give my chicken a quick spray with the cooking spray so they don’t dry out. Sprinkle with Ranch Dressing Mix to taste. My favorite is Uncle Dan’s Original Ranch Mix…it’s simply the BEST! Now Sprinkle with a bit of Pepper if you like.
  3. Bake in oven for half hour to 45 min. Check at half hour to see if your chicken is done
  4. While chicken is in the oven cook your bacon OR use Bacon Pieces that you’ve prepared or Bacon Pieces that are pre made.
  5. You can cook your bacon on the stove, in the oven or in the microwave!
  6. Make your instant mashed potatoes just before you are going to take the chicken out. Now you can of course make real mashed potatoes but I like to use instant because I use real instant potatoes and they are still delish.
  7. Remove Chicken from the oven.
  8. Top with potatoes and cheese. Put back in oven just until cheese melts.
  9. Now add the Bacon
