Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole

I made this for the first time this week for a crowd of 160 at VBS. If you serve this to a bunch of kids, and they like it... it must be good. When a teenager asks for the recipe... GOLD!!!


4 Chicken Breasts, cooked and shredded
1 can Cream of Mushroom (or Chicken) Soup
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup ranch dressing
1 sm pkg real bacon bits
1/2 t salt (to taste)
1/4 t pepper (to taste)
1/4 t garlic powder (to taste)
1/4 t basil (optional)
2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Mix all ingredients except the cheese. Spray a casserole dish with oil and pour chicken mixture in the dish. Bake at 350 degrees until warmed through. Top with cheese and bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese melts and begins to turn brown.

Optional biscuit topping...
Mix ALL the ingredients together and warm. Top with biscuit dough and cook until golden brown.

Optional Cracker Topping...
Fix as directed above, until cheese is melted. Combine 1 sleeve of crushed Ritz crackers and 1 stick of melted butter. Toss, then sprinkle cracker mixture on top of the casserole. Bake for an additional 5-8 minutes... watch so the crackers don't burn.

  1. I'm assuming that is 1/4 CUP of prepared Ranch Dressing or would it be 1/4 pkg. Dry Ranch Dressing mix?! Thanks.

  2. 1/4 cup ranch dressing... it's been a long week! When I cut and pasted it from my computer, it lost something in the translation! LOL
    Thanks for bringing that to my attention! :-)

    1. No... no pasta. It's a take off on the subs and wraps. You can always add pasta if you like.
