- 4 chicken breasts

- 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
Cook bacon until crisp and chop into 1" pieces.
Add cream cheese and ranch seasoning to a bowl and mix to combine. (Tip: warming the cream cheese helps it mix much easier)
Season chicken lightly with salt.
Spread half of the mixture on the bottom of a 9x13" baking pan and add chicken breasts to pan.
Top chicken breasts evenly with remaining cream cheese.
Add bacon and cheese to cover the chicken breasts.
