Ranch Baked Chicken with Bacon is one of my favorite Chicken Breast Recipes! This Bacon Ranch Chicken is super simple (only FIVE ingredients!), absolutely fool-proof, and has so much flavor. Your baked chicken will come out juicy and tender every single time covered in the easiest and tastiest bacon ranch sauce. Ranch Chicken has never tasted better!
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts 1½ cups Ranch dressing ½ cup sour cream 1-1½ cup grated Parmesan cheese divided Kosher salt Freshly grated black pepper 1/4 cup cooked bacon crumbles Garnish: diced fresh parsley
Heat oven to 375°F and spray an 8 x 11-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
If the breasts are uneven in thickness, pound them to an even 1” thickness using a meat pounder.
Sprinkle both sides of meat with half the grated Parmesan cheese, salt and freshly ground black pepper. Place the chicken in the prepared baking dish.
In a medium bowl, whisk together Ranch dressing and sour cream. Pour the mixture over the chicken breasts and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese.
Bake at 375°F for 20-30 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the breast reads 150°F.
Set oven to broil and broil the breast an additional 2-4 minutes or until the chicken turns golden. It will burn quickly so watch closely.
The chicken is cooked through when the thermometer reads 160°F when inserted in the thickest part of the middle breast.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with cooked bacon crumbles. Allow the chicken to rest a few minutes before serving.
Garnish with diced parsley, if desired.
