Chicken Bacon Ranch Meatloaf

If you ever been here before you know that I love the flavors of chicken, bacon, and ranch.   They go so well together and I think they are my favorite savory flavor combination.  I had always loved chicken bacon and ranch sandwiches but I really got hooked on the flavors when I was in college and tried chicken bacon ranch pizza for the first time.  Even though the pizza was from the college cafeteria, it was still really good and I have been a huge fan ever since.
 
Now whenever I can, I try to make something flavored with chicken, bacon, ranch.  Awhile back I posted a recipe for Chicken Parmesan Meatloaf.  It was really good and is one of our favorites.  So, I thought to myself if I am already doing a chicken meatloaf, why don’t I flavor the meatloaf with ranch and add bacon and cheddar cheese, so the Chicken Bacon Ranch Meatloaf was born.
 
This Chicken Bacon Ranch Meatloaf was really good.  I loved the chicken bacon and ranch flavors combined with the meatloaf.  This is definitely a great variation on your traditional meatloaf.  The meatloaf is made with ground chicken and contains ranch dressing mix, bacon, and cheese to flavor it.  It is then topped with ranch dressing and more cheese.  This was a great meal that my whole family enjoyed.  I hope you enjoy it as well.

    Hey Alyssa, I made some strawberry smores last week and they turned out just the way you described on your post. Thanks for that recipe! Such a treat. Now, moving on, will try this chicken meatloaf. I may use the steamer instead and make an aluminum wrapped version of the chicken because I want this to be stored in the freezer for a long period.
