This is no ordinary Chicken and Rice. This is "Cracked Out" Chicken and Rice - chicken, rice, cheddar, Ranch and bacon. YUM! This takes ordinary chicken and rice from good to great!
We absolutely loved this dish. How could we not? It is so delicious and super simple to make. I used my weeknight dinner secret weapon - rotisserie chicken - at it came together in minutes. I had it ready and waiting when the oven was finally preheated. To make sure the rice gets cooked thoroughly and doesn't burn on the bottom, I stir this about half way through the cooking time. Turns out perfect every time!
