This recipe for Bacon Ranch Chicken Salad is one of those recipes that evolve on a Saturday afternoon… when you’re hungry and want something other than the plain ordinary…. so you rummage through the fridge to see what you have…. I had a leftover chicken breast from when I poached chicken breasts for the pot pie…. and so it went from there.
We had leftover cooked bacon from breakfast… so that got chopped and went in…. a little cheddar cheese… a little chopped green onion…. Mayo?.... nope… plain mayo just wasn’t going to do it…. ahhh … ranch dressing….
The result?..... terrific… we sat there eating it on crackers…. A terrific snack for a weekend afternoon…We decided it would be a fabulous sandwich in a pita pocket…. So we’ll be getting pitas on our next grocery run..
I don’t have salt on the ingredient list… this is not a mistake… between the bacon and the dressing… there is more than enough salt in the salad… add more if you prefer, but taste it first.
This chicken salad is great… a little smokey from the bacon… a little spicy from the green onion and ranch dressing…. a perfect change to add pizzazz to chicken…. I know I’m always looking for something new to do with chicken… and use up leftovers… try it…. you’ll like it!
