One-pan Chicken Bacon Ranch Sweet Potato Bake is a flavor-packed meal that will likely become a new family favorite and addition to your menu rotation!
Chicken Bacon Ranch Sweet Potato Bake is a busy moms dream meal! It’s made with just 7-ingredients and taste delicious!
We, The Real Food Dietitians, keep busy schedules in mind. It’s always our goal to create recipes with less than 10 ingredients. We’re all about keeping it simple in the kitchen so that you have more time in the day to be ‘mom’ or ‘dad’, to spend more time outdoors, to be active and to simply do the things you love & enjoy most! This Chicken Bacon Ranch Sweet Potato Bake fits the bill of a simple and easy recipe and it won’t keep you in the kitchen all.day.long! And really, who doesn’t love the flavor combo of chicken, bacon and ranch?!
Speaking of ranch! I didn’t use any ol’ ranch dressing in this recipe.
Recently, I had the opportunity to try Tessemae’s NEW Organic Creamy Ranch dressing and oh my is it delicious. Tessemae’s ranch isn’t your ordinary ranch. It’s dairy-free, soy free, sugar-free, low in sodium, and paleo-friendly (not egg-free). There is nothing hidden in their ranch (#nothinghiddenhere) as it’s made with ONLY ingredients you can pronounce and it tastes damn delicious. One of my top tips to eating a diet in whole, real foods is to always read the ingredients on packaged foods. If you can’t pronounce one or you’re unsure of the ingredient, play it safe and leave it on the shelf where it most likely belongs.
A question us Real Food Dietitians we are asked often is – “What are healthy, store-purchased dressings and condiments”?
Welp, here’s your answer friends…..Tessemae’s! They have an entire line of dressings and condiments and each one is made with clean ingredients that you can pronounce. #realfoodRDapproved.
Where to purchase Tessemae’s?
Tessemae’s is carried nationwide in grocery stores. If you aren’t able to find Tessemae’s in your area (I’m one of those people), many of the dressings and condiments are available online. The NEW Creamy Ranch and Creamy Caesar are not available online, however they are quickly being picked up by various nationally known stores such as Walmart, Kroger, Safeway, meijer, Food Lion, SuperValu, The Fresh Market, EarthFare, Target, and Whole Foods. So be sure to check the refrigerator sections of those stores for these two new flavors! If you can’t find it, simply put a requests into your grocer to carry Tessemae’s Creamy Ranch and Caesar dressing. Oftentimes, grocers want to fulfill the needs of their local customers.
Chicken Bacon Ranch Sweet Potato Bake is a one-dish wonder!
Part of keeping meals simple is not only keeping the number of ingredients at minimum but also dirtying as few dishes, pots, pans, and cooking utensils as possible because it makes for a quicker kitchen clean-up. Yes, please! When making Chicken Bacon Ranch Sweet Potato Bake you can toss everything together on a sheet pan. No need to dirty a bowl!
If you’d like to use boneless, skinless chicken breast, you certainly can. I however, prefer to use boneless, skinless chicken thighs as they have a slightly higher fat content creating a more tender baked chicken. Dry chicken is not my jam.
It’s very possible that Chicken Bacon Ranch Sweet Potato Bake will be the newest favorite meal in your family! Kids and hubbies will love this recipe! And even if you’re cooking for one, this recipe is perfect to make during your weekend meal prep. For example, I like to prep a couple of meals on Sunday that will last me throughout the week and this recipe just so happens to be a perfect meal prep recipe that tastes great re-heated.One-pan Chicken Bacon Ranch Sweet Potato Bake will surely be a hit for the entire fam!
