Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta Skillet

January 15, 2015
Next to my crock pot, cooking in a giant skillet is my favorite way to make dinner. It just makes life so much easier.  After a long day, getting dinner on the table is not usually my favorite thing to do.  So, tossing everything in to one pot is very appealing.  Also, less dishes to clean too.  Big plus there. Huge plus.  I  hate dishes.  

Anyway, this has something for everybody.  Your meat, your carb and your veggie. Works great if you have picky eaters (like my house).  I have one kid who eats just chicken and pasta and another who won't eat bacon (weird, right?) . It kinda just balances out in the end.

A great weeknight meal for all!


{Our veggie of choice was broccoli, but, this would work great also with peas, peppers or green beans.}
