How to make Chicken Bacon Ranch
The most complicated part of this recipe is mixing the ranch seasoning into the mayo and sour cream. There really is no easier recipe!
We reheated half of this the next day and honestly it was better reheated, so it's definitely a great option with this recipe to make it ahead of time and reheat in a day or two. I didn't try and freeze it so I'm not sure how it will reheat after freezing.
