I can't believe that this recipe is even remotely healthy or lower calorie because it is super, super yummy!!!!! I was so hungry cooking it that I forgot to take a picture of my own, so I'll be stealing one off of Pinterest for you to look at (you are getting hungry, very, very hungry!). Click here for the full recipe from Hope or take your chances with my abbreviated version.


1/2 lb whole wheat pasta (just use whatever you got in the cupboard)
4 slices bacon
1 large chicken breast (or 2 smaller ones),  cut into bite-sized pieces, salt & pepper those babies
1 Tbsp flour
1/2 pkg ranch dressing mix
1 cup lowfat milk
1/2 lowfat shredded cheese

1. Cook the pasta, follow the directions or just cook it however you want
2. Fry the bacon, drain with papertowels, keep 1/2 Tbsp of bacon grease  in the pan
3. Add chicken  and cook until its not pink anymore
4. Sprinkle flour and ranch dressing mix over cooked chicken and stir it up
5. Add milk, stirring until its bubbling and gets thicker
6. Add cheese and 1/2 of bacon (crumbled)
