Creamy Chicken Pasta with Bacon
6 slices bacon, diced
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
2 Tbsp flour
2 cups milk
1-2 tsp dry ranch dressing mix
1 Tbsp fresh parmesan cheese, optional
Hot pasta noodles
Cook bacon over medium heat till crispy. Remove from pan and set aside. Drain all but 2 Tbsp of the bacon grease. Cook chicken in the bacon grease till completely done. Stir in flour, then slowly stir in the milk. Add the ranch dressing mix. Cook and stir till thickened; boil at least one minute. Add chicken and bacon to the sauce. Serve over hot pasta and top with parmesan cheese if desired.
If you are in a big hurry, you can use Hormel bacon bits. Just cook the chicken in 2 Tbsp of butter instead of the bacon grease, and proceed with the recipe as usual. Still really good!
