Creamy Ranch Chicken

I made this for dinner tonight.  Kade & Tony both really liked it.  I think the rest of us did too, we just weren't very hungry because we had Space Aliens for lunch.  

It was very quick & easy to make although it wasn't the lowest fat dish.  We all really like bacon though & this combined lots of things the kids love: ranch, chicken, bacon, & noodles.  I just lightened the recipe up in a couple of other areas to accommodate for the bacon grease.  Life is all about compromise, right?

Creamy Ranch Chicken

POINTS® Value: 8
Servings:  5


5 oz bacon, uncooked (6 thin slices)
1 pound(s) uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 serving(s) Ranch Salad dressing and Seasoning mix, 1 oz. package, (2 Tbsp. ranch mix)
1 1/4 cup(s) fat-free skim milk


1. Cut bacon into narrow strips. In a large skillet cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Drain bacon on paper towels; discard all but 2 tablespoons drippings.

2. In the same skillet cook chicken in reserved drippings until tender and no longer pink, turning to brown evenly. Sprinkle flour and salad dressing mix over the chicken in the skillet; stir well. Stir in milk. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 1 minute more. Stir in bacon. 

Serve chicken mixture with noodles.  I like the Smart Taste Rotini.  Healthy but no one knows it;-)
Sprinkle with Parmesan.
