Some times when I go to figure out my meals for the week, I get so discouraged. What what what can I cook this week?! Then I realize…duh, I have a whole blog full of recipes. (Thank you blog!

Let’s get to cooking some Chicken Bacon Ranch Bake!

Chicken Bacon Ranch Bake

  • 1 can crescent rolls
  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 8 slices cooked crumbled bacon, divided
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon dry Ranch seasoning
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 3 medium green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar Jack cheese blend

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread crescent rolls onto a 13×9 inch baking pan, sealing perforated edges. Bake 10 minutes. Meanwhile, mix mayo and Ranch seasoning until well combined. In a medium bowl crumble 6 slices of bacon, add shredded chicken, and 1/2 cup of the mayo Ranch mixture. Stir until combined. Remove baked crescent sheet from oven, spread the remaining mayo Ranch mixture over the top within a 1/4 inch of edges. Spread the chicken mixture over the top of the Ranch mixture. Sprinkle with tomato and cheese. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until cheese is hot and melted. Sprinkle with remaining bacon and green onions. Eat and enjoy!

Lacie’s Easy Peasy Pleasy Tips!

*I make this Chicken Bacon Ranch Bake recipe for parties too! This recipe serves 6 for a weeknight meal idea when I cut down the middle and and twice across. You can cut each of those six squares into half or 4 times to stretch for party appetizers. You can really easily double the recipe for larger family functions or gatherings.

*The recipe calls for 2 cups of shredded chicken. Use half of a rotisserie chicken (or leftover cooked chicken). Save the other half of the rotisserie chicken for a meal later in the week.

*When I know I’m going to make this recipe, I will cook 8 extra pieces of bacon when I’m cooking up breakfast that week. Then I store in a ziplock bag in the fridge until I’m ready to use the bacon.

*I keep a canister of dry Ranch dressing mix in my pantry at all times…it’s basically a staple. If you don’t have the dry Ranch mix then you could substitute Ranch Dressing. The flavor will be stronger using the bottled dressing.

My family and friends love this easy Chicken Bacon Ranch Bake and I would love to know if your family loves it too! Don’t forget to add this recipe to your Pinterest or Yummly recipe box!

  1. Hi Lacie, Looks like a great recipe – aren’t crescent rolls just a blank canvas waiting to be filled? Your photography is great, too! Thanks for sharing. Blessings, Janet

      Hi Janet! I totally agree about the crescent rolls. I just wish they would sell those crescent sheets, you see around the holidays, all year round to make life even easier!

    This was delicious and easy! I think I am going to switch it up a little next time to fit the picky eaters at my house. I will mix 1/3 cup mayo, 1/3 cup sour cream, and 1/3 cup softened cream cheese for the recommended 1 cup of mayo. And I can’t wait to use garden fresh tomatoes in it!

    • lacier77 says:

      Awesome Rhonda! I’m so glad you liked the recipe. When I was creating and testing the recipe, I thought about doing straight cream cheese but ultimately decided on the mayo. I’m betting your combination will be delicious! Cream cheese is good on about anything!

    • lacier77 says:

      Thank you Sherry! This recipe is super easy especially if you have already cooked your bacon!

    I made this tonight and it was so yummy! Husband approved as well! I used half mayo half cream cheese and it was delish! I needed to make something quick and this was a good choice. It would have been even quicker if I had already cooked the turkey bacon. Thanks for the recipe!

      Hi Hannah! Thanks for dropping a line! I’m so glad you liked! When I created the recipe, I considered using part cream cheese. I may have to try it the next time. I’m so glad you liked!

  4. Lol, you made me laugh with the what should you cook and then realizing you have a blog full of ideas! I’m always trying to figure out something new to cook so things don’t get too boring. I like this recipe. Thanks!
