Healthy Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole

I used to not be a huge casserole fan, because I didn't like all the flavors coming together. However, This Healthy Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole, has totally changed me. All these flavors blend perfectly together, yet are still distinct. You will love how simple, delicious, and healthy this recipe is.

All growing up, I hated casseroles. I didn’t like the flavor combinations, and I hated the vegetables my mom would throw in.

I just grew up always hating them and refusing to eat them. Since being married, I’ve decided to try a few casseroles, that I knew my husband would like.

I came across the idea of making a Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole, and the course of my life changed. I am now a casserole believer and lover.

They are so easy to make, inexpensive, feed a crowd and taste amazing. You are going to love how simple and delicious this casserole is.

It has all the best flavors, and they all combine nicely. This one also doesn’t have any vegetables, but you could add them as desired.

How to make Healthy chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole:

Step 1: Cook and shred chicken. I boiled my chicken and shredded it with two forks.

Step 2: In a bowl, combine the Alfredo sauce, 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, and ranch packet.

Step 3: Combine the sauce mixture, with the shredded chicken and noodles in the 9 x 9 inch pan. You could also use 13 x 9 inch pan, but the casserole will be a bit thin.

Step 4: Sprinkle your bacon pieces and shredded parmesan cheese on top.

Step 5: Place in oven and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. I like my cheese a little more crispy on top, so I placed mine under the broiler for 60 seconds.

Step 6: Remove from the oven and garnish with fresh cilantro. You could also do parsley, but I love the crisp taste of the cilantro with this recipe.

Step 7: Serve immediately and enjoy.
