There are so many things I love about this recipe bacon…ranch…biscuits….I’m not sure there is any way you could actually go wrong with those combinations of ingredients. The fact that they are all baked up in one easy casserole recipe is just icing on the cake…or biscuit in this case.

I make a lot of casseroles, especially in the winter. They are simple to throw together and I can usually make them ahead of time so all I have to do after a long day of kid wrangling and housework, is throw it in the oven. This one is extra easy because it is made with canned biscuits and rotisserie chicken. I’m all about rotisserie chicken, it saves me so much time in the kitchen and nothing tastes better!
All I do is chop up a couple of cups of rotisserie chicken and toss it in a bowl with cream cheese, bacon, and diced tomatoes. Then I put everything in a greased casserole dish and sprinkle it with a little cheddar cheese, because you can never have too much cheese. The casserole takes about 30 minutes to bake and then I give it 10 minutes to sit and cool a little so everything holds together better. Then I drizzle the whole thing with ranch dressing, because ranch dressing makes everything better!
Speaking of ranch and how much better it makes things, you’ve gotta get your veggies into this meal somehow so while the casserole is cooling I usually grab a bag of Birds Eye® Flavor Full Ranch Broccoli out of the freezer. It comes in Steamfresh® packaging so you can just put the whole bag in microwave and in just a few minutes you have a piping hot side to go with dinner. My kids love the ranch flavor, it’s one of the few veggies I can get them to eat without much argument. One of my personal favorites is the Birds Eye® Flavor Full Buffalo Cauliflower which also goes really well with this casserole. That’s not all they have though, Birds Eye Flavor Full has a bunch of bold, unexpected flavors, Sour Cream & Onion Potatoes, Teriyaki Broccoli, Barbecue Sweet Corn, Sweet Chili Carrots, Wasabi Peas and Fiesta Lime Corn. You could serve your family different vegetables every day of the week! You can find Bird’s Eye Flavor Full vegetables here.
