Creamy Bacon Ranch Chicken

Time for some more deliciousness!  This is such a simple meal, but it got rave reviews from my kiddos.  I actually have to triple this recipe because my kiddos devour it.  I think it has something to do with the ranch dressing.  What is it with kids and ranch dressing?  All I have to do is mention that its in there and the meal is an instant hit.  Of course, the bacon is what makes it irresistible to me.  :)  

Another plus to this recipe is that I can have it on the table in less than 30 minutes and I only dirty 2 pans (if you count the one the pasta cooks in) so clean up is a snap.  Its perfect for those evenings when you've played chauffeur back and forth to piano lessons, soccer games and boy scouts!

Creamy Ranch Chicken
Serves about 4

6 slices of bacon, cut up
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
2 Tbs. flour
2 Tbs. dry ranch salad dressing mix
1 1/4 cups milk
3 cups dried medium noodles
1 Tbs. finely shredded Parmesan cheese

Cook the pasta according to package directions.  In a skillet, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Drain all but 2 Tbs. of grease. In the same skillet, cook the chicken in bacon drippings until no longer pink. Sprinkle flour and salad dressing mix over the chicken; stir well to coat all the chicken. Stir in milk. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 1 minute more. Stir in bacon. Serve over egg noodles and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Serves 4.
