Easy Chicken Bacon Ranch and Cheddar. Is there any better combination of flavors than Chicken Bacon Ranch and Cheddar Cheese?
Chicken Bacon Ranch and Cheddar
I have mentioned before that we eat a lot of chicken in our house. Actually, that is probably a huge understatement. My husband Joe could eat chicken 7 nights a week for dinner.
I love chicken as well but like to think of different ways to prepare it so I don't get bored with the same thing over and over. I have shared Instant Pot Barbeque Chicken Thighs
Also CrockPot Creamy Mushroom Chicken. Chicken Bacon Ranch is another one of my favorites. This time I made it with Cheddar and on top of the stove in a skillet. Often I change it up and use mozzarella or provolone. It can also be made in the oven or in the instant pot and thrown under the broiler to melt the cheese.
Like my other chicken recipes,, this dinner is low carb and keto diet-friendly. This recipe is actually perfect for the keto lifestyle because of the high-fat content of the bacon and cheese. It always seems so odd that doing keto requires eating high fat. It just goes against everything we've ever known about getting thin right? Once you get used to it you will realize that eating foods high in fat fill you up so much quicker. Once in the state of ketosis, your body begins to burns fat.
