Being pregnant was no joke, but I got a beautiful little boy out of it. He is precious, wonderful and consumes 24 hours of my day. I love my time with him, but right now he is napping in his car seat on my bed and I’m going to finally update my blog.

My recipes have changed somewhat, now they are quick, easy and can normally be prepared with a screaming baby in one arm.
I came up with this one the other day because I didn’t want to brave this arctic blast to go to the grocery store.

Ranch Style Chicken with Bacon


4-5 Chicken breast (mine were still half frozen)
1.5 cups of real bacon bits (or 1 pound of cooked bacon if you have time to cook bacon)
1.5 Tbs ranch salad dressing mix (I use Hidden Valley)
.5 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 jar of alfredo sauce
2 cups of grated mozzarella cheese
2 tsp italian seasoning
1 large onion, sliced

mmmm bacon.

mmmm bacon.

Preheat your oven to 350 and get out a 9×13 baking dish.
Cover the bottom of your dish with the onions and put the chicken on top of the onions.
Sprinkle the ranch seasoning, salt and pepper on the chicken.
Put the bacon on top of the chicken and cover the dish with foil.
Bake for 1 hour or until the chicken is done. My chicken was still a bit frozen so it took a little longer to cook.
Once the chicken is no longer pink inside pour the alfredo sauce on the bacon and sprinkle the cheese and italian seasoning on top.
Put the dish back in the oven uncovered, until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
