I’m so happy to be working with Gold’n Plump to bring you this amazing dinner recipe.

You guys! The other morning Quinn turned on Christmas music. Can you believe it?? I mean, we aren’t even to Halloween yet, but I kind of loved it. Though, it also gave me a minor panic attack.

We are almost to Halloween! And then comes what is not just the busiest time of year for me as a blogger, but also as a mom! The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is  no joke.

It’s true though. I feel like we are constantly RUNNING. And I know that so many of you with little kiddos feel that way too. You want to give them everything life has to offer, but it makes life kind of crazed and stressful. And that means we both need as many easy dinner recipes as we can fit into our packed lives.

One thing my family will always go for is a good chicken recipe. I love having recipes that taste delicious and I know my family will be all over. We always buy Gold’n Plump chicken breasts because we can count on them turning out well every single time. They are always moist, tender, and perfect and that is kind of a make it or break it deal with my chicken recipes. Plus I love that the chickens are raised with No Antibiotics – Ever on family farms.

This chicken recipe is no exception. It is moist, perfect, easy to throw together, and for sure will be a family favorite.

You start by slicing open some boneless skinless chicken breasts. Season them with salt and pepper. Whip together some cream cheese and ranch dressing mix. Then you add cheddar cheese to each breast, the cream cheese mixture, and then close them and secure them with a toothpick. Sear them for three minutes on each side in the skillet you cooked some bacon in. Season them more, bake them, top them with more cheddar and bacon and enjoy!

Tips to make this recipe turn out perfectly

  • Use room temperature cream cheese, it will make the whipping so much easier.
  • If your family loves ranch seasoning, you might want to add just a little bit more.
  • Use slices of cheddar cheese, instead of shredded, because it both stays in place and melts better.
  • If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, invest in one. This is just one of many recipes that you will love making in it.

    I’ve tried this recipe w/mozzarella cheese on top of pizza sauce instead of cheddar ‘n bacon. You can also substitute ricotta cheese for cream cheese. Bacon-flavored oil for cooking chicken…yep, great tip! Thanks for sharing.
