Ranch Chicken and Bacon Casserole

I like this recipe because it's quick and simple to throw together.  It's an easy dish to double or even triple for a get together.  Add a green salad, some crusty rolls and you've got the perfect meal to take to someone in need.


2 c. chicken, cooked and chopped
1/2 c. bacon, cooked, crumbled
(you can use bacon bits)
1 c. cheddar cheese
1 (1 oz.) packet dry ranch dressing mix
1 (10.75 oz.) can cream of chicken soup
1 c. milk
3/4 c. uncooked long grain rice (not instant rice)
1/2 c. French's Dried Onion Rings
I hate it when I forget to put 1 ingredient in a photo!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Lightly coat a 9x9 baking dish with non-stick spray.  In a large bowl combine the chicken, bacon, cheddar cheese, ranch dressing mix, soup, milk and rice.  Stir well to incorporate.  Spread into the prepared baking dish.  Cover with foil and bake for 35-40 minutes, stirring midway through the cooking time. 
After stirring, sprinkle the dried onion rings over the top, re-cover and continue baking until edges are hot and bubbly. Serves 4-6.
