Chicken Ranch Mac & Cheese
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min.
I changed the recipe very little. Added a 1/4 cup or so of the pasta liquid to the sauce, but other than that I pretty much followed the recipe. We thought it was delicious. Had a side of sauteed Brussels with.
Thanks for a great recipe Angela! Made it this morning before going out to run errands so I could just put it in the oven when I got home. Had it together in no time, very easy to prepare!
Must call bs on the 15 min prep time. Liked this recipe but took me an hour to prepare. Boiling mac took 10 min cutting chicken, shredding cheese cooking sauce, cooking bacon ect. The only way this takes 15 min. Is if you have a prep team like a cooking show.
We really liked this. The ranch flavor seemed pretty subtle. That may have been because, like other reviewers suggested, I added in some milk at the end of cooking the cheese sauce, so that it wouldn't be so thick. Maybe nearly 1/4C of milk. I also tossed some fresh chopped yellow bell pepper into the mix. It cooked up in the oven, and it made the meal more rounded out with some veggies. Next time I think I might do 1.5x the sauce and add in broccoli. The topping was delicious, and I think it actually brought out the ranch flavor more. I made no other changes except to cut it in half and put it in an 8x8 dish. It did seem like about 4 servings. I will definitely make this again.
My husband and I really loved this recipe. I added a packet of dry ranch dressing as well... Yummy! I'm thinking next time I might add some diced tomatoes. Only complaint is that it doesn't heat up as well, kinda dry. Hoping the tomatoes would help or adding a little more ranch to the reheated portion before microwaving.
I made this tonight for supper and it was AMAZING! The only change I made was using mozzarella cheese instead of Swiss. Will definitely be making it again!
This is delicious,and I will make it again soon. Lots of ideas one could do with this but it's great as is!
I'm always trying new recipes. My family is very picky. FINALLY! Something they all loved. Not a complaint out of the lot.
I made this for my husband and our neighbors and everyone loved it. My neighbors asked for the recipe. I love it when I find myself a winning recipe. Thank you Angela and Taste of Home
My boys LOVE this - it has everything they love. Very rich, but very flavorful. I made this for a family get together and it was a big hit.
