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!

  1. Wow! This looks great! I love chicken and rice but you really did it with this recipe. I can't resist the bacon, ranch and cheddar. Definitely going into my weeknight rotation!

  2. Your recipes are always the best! Definitely will give this a try. My favorite of yours is the chicken dish with the orange marmalade.

  3. This recipe looks perfect for dinner tonight! I am curious about something – I notice in a lot of your dinner plate pictures, lima beans seem to be your vegetable choice. Are lima beans a southern "staple"? I've never eaten lima beans unless they were mixed up with other vegetables. How do you cook them so they taste good? 🙂

    1. It’s been along time since you asked this question, so I’m not sure if you’ll see this reply. Lima beans, or as we sometimes call them, butter beans, are my favorite vegetable. I cook mine in water with a couple of chicken bouillon cubes added. You can also add a little bacon grease which makes them really good. I buy mine frozen and just simmer them until they’re done. They should be soft. Hope this helps.

  4. I need this, like I need it right now! I would totally eat all of this haha, I know this recipe is fabulous! Love it!

  5. Can't wait to try it out…I've made several of your recipes and they have all been wonderful! thanks for the great post
