Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza Casserole


  • 1 lb. Bacon fried and crumbled, drippings reserved
  • 2 lb. boneless chicken
  • 2 T. dry ranch dressing mix
  • 1 bell pepper diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 lb. box bow tie pasta cooked
  • 2 jars Alfredo sauce
  • 1/3 c. evaporated milk
  • 3 Roma tomatoes diced
  • 4 c. shredded cheese (I used mozzarella)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces, coat with 1-1/2 T. of ranch dressing mix.
  • Sauté in skillet with 1 T. reserved bacon grease, along with bell peppers and garlic.
  • When chicken is done, drain grease and liquid from skillet. Return chicken and vegetables to skillet.
  • Pour 1 jar Alfredo sauce and milk into skillet with chicken.
  • Stir in 1 t. ranch dressing mix. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  • In the bottom of one 9x13-inch or two 8x8-inch baking pans, layer half of the remaining jar of Alfredo sauce.
  • Then layer one-third of each: pasta, chicken mix and tomatoes. Add ¼ of the bacon pieces. Spread 1 cup of cheese over top.
  • Repeat layers two more times.
  • After the third layer, cover with remaining Alfredo sauce, 1 cup cheese and remaining bacon.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
