Ingredients

4
chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
2 pkg
hidden valley ranch seasoning
1 large
container sour cream (non-reduced fat)
2 lb
pasta of choice (shells, rigatoni, radiatore etc)
1 lb
shredded monterey jack cheese
1 lb
shredded mozzarella cheese
1 pkg
bacon
1 pkg
real bacon pieces (optional i use these because i'm too lazy to chop the bacon, these are for on top of your casserole)
1/2
onion-slivered
parsley
splash of milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees
2
Cut Chicken breast into bite size cubes
3
Cut bacon into approximately 1 inch strips
4
Place your cubed chicken in a large skillet, cook on medium heat. When Chicken is about halfway done add your bacon to the chicken and cook until bacon has a semi-crisp but still soft consistency and your chicken is cooked thoroughly.
5
Boil pasta while your bacon and chicken are cooking
6
When meat is finished, drain all excess grease.
7
Drain pasta
8
Combine Sour cream and ranch seasoning in a large bowl. Add 1/2 of each package of cheese to mixture.
Then combine pasta, bacon and chicken. Mix well until pasta and chicken and bacon are completely coated. If it looks a little dry, add a few splashes of milk. It should be just between a thick and thin consistency.
9
Place mixture into a Large greased baking pan. Cover with remaining cheese. Top with Bacon Pieces and slivered onions. Dust top with parsley.
10
Place in 375 degree oven for 30-45 minutes or until gold and bubbly.
