Cheddar Bacon Ranch Chicken and Rice Skillet

Back in the day this was one of my favorite easy recipes. As I was trying to figure out what to make for dinner earlier today, I realized it has been quite a while since I made this tasty dish. You can never go wrong with chicken, cheese, and bacon!

Cheddar Bacon Ranch Chicken and Rice Skillet
Serves 6

2 cups cooked and shredded chicken
4 cups cooked rice
1 cup shredded american cheese blend (be sure to use american since it's easy melting)
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup cooked and crumbled bacon
1/2 cup lowfat milk
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
2 tsp. dry ranch seasoning

Season cooked chicken with ranch. Set aside.

In a large skillet saute onion until softened. Pour in milk and american cheese whisking until melted and smooth. Add chicken, bacon, and rice to cheese mixture. Once combined top with shredded sharp cheddar and place in broiler for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Enjoy!
