Chicken Bacon Ranch Fries
Now before we get to the recipe I have to tell you that, my family has a slight addiction to my Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole. If you have never made it, I highly suggest that you do because it is AMAZING! It is one of our favorite dinners!
The other night I wanted to make it, however the kids were with my parents so it was just Tom and I at home. I didn’t feel like making the whole big dish and I wasn’t really in the mood for pasta but wanted the amazing flavors.
I opened the freezer to see what was in there that I could use to make something with the chicken bacon ranch flavors, but with less work and quicker. I found a bag of fries and 1/2 a bag of chicken nuggets that was left over Tom bought last week while I was traveling and got the brilliant idea of Chicken Bacon Ranch Cheesy Fries.
Yes these loaded fries are as amazing as they sound!
Yea I know loaded cheese fries is not really a dinner item, its more like a bar food item but hey it was just Tom and I 🙂 The idea sounded fantastic in my head but when I put it in my mouth when they were done the flavor was even more amazing then I even dreamed of! So I am totally giving you the go ahead to make these for dinner one night. No judgements here on feeding the family fries as a meal. 😉 Good food is good food!
Loaded Cheese Fries Recipe
Bacon Ranch Cheese fries are seriously my favorite loaded cheese fries recipe, and I am pretty sure you are going to be hooked once you take your first bite! They have the best combination of cheddar bacon fries I have had, then add in the chicken and ranch flavors and WOW!
I personally like my bacon crispy, but when making these bacon and cheese fries you can cook your bacon to your favorite crispiness. I haven’t found much difference in the end result of cooking the bacon on the stove, in the oven or if you want it faster in the microwave.
When making this amazing chicken bacon ranch recipe I use Hidden Valley Ranch. I personally find it has the best ranch flavor for making these amazing.
I also like to top my Chicken Bacon Ranch Fries with sour cream. If you want to get all fancy make a few extra pieces of bacon to sprinkle on top of the easy loaded fries once they are done. There is no such thing as to much bacon, ever and especially not when you are making Chicken Bacon Ranch Fries. 🙂

Chicken Bacon Ranch Fries
These Chicken Bacon Ranch Fries are the perfect loaded fries. Chicken and cheddar cheese with bacon and ranch. Oh they are so amazing, you might not want to share!
- 10 frozen chicken nuggets
- 1/2 bag frozen french fries
- 8 ounce bag Mexican mix cheese
- 1/2 tablespoon diced green chili peppers i get the canned ones
- 1/2 cup ranch dressing I used Kraft
- 1 tablespoon diced garlic I use the jar kind
- 8 slices bacon cut in half
- Preheat oven to 450.
- On one tray put fries on another put chicken nuggets.
- Bake chicken nuggets for 10 minutes, bake fries for 17-20 (until they are cooked and crispy). While chicken nuggets and fries are cooking cook your bacon.
- Get a skillet and put 1 tablespoon of diced garlic, add your bacon and cook till crispy. Remove and drain on paper towels. By this step your chicken nuggets will be done.
- Get a medium sized mixing bowl and add bacon into the bowl, breaking it into pieces as you put it in. Then cut your chicken nuggets up in to little pieces, add ranch dressing, and chilis and mix it all together.
- Get a baking dish that can go in the oven. By this time your fries should be done if not wait till they are done to continue.
- Remove fries and put them in baking dish, top with the bacon ranch mixture and then sprinkle cheese on top. You have a full 8 ounce bag don't be afraid to use a lot, you want them cheesy!
- Then put the whole thing in the over for 5 minutes to melt the cheese. Remove and enjoy (you could wait till they cool a bit but the smell was so amazing coming from the oven that we couldn't and we dove right in!)
You can also use diced chicken breasts (cooked already) in place of the chicken nuggets. Chicken Fries cut up also work well.
