Ingredients

6 strips bacon, cooked, chopped
4 chicken breasts (use 4 thin chicken breasts, or use 2 large chicken breasts, sliced in half, horizontally)
½ c. Ranch dressing
2 c. broccoli florets, blanched, chopped
⅓ c. Mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 c. Cheddar cheese, shredded

How to make Baked Ranch Chicken with Broccoli and Bacon

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F.

Step 2: To a casserole dish, add the chicken breasts. For this recipe, I used a 13 x 9 x 4-inch deep oval casserole dish. For the chicken, you can use either 4 thin chicken breasts or 2 large thick chicken breasts that are sliced in half horizontally each to create 2 thin chicken breasts.

Step 3: Over the chicken breasts, add the chopped and blanched broccoli florets. Top the florets with chopped cooked bacon and spread the ranch dressing on top. Lastly, sprinkle everything with shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese.

Step 4: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 20 to 30 minutes, uncovered, or until the chicken is completely cooked. Note that the cooking time varies depending on the thickness of the chicken breasts.
