Cheesy Ranch Chicken Pasta is so addictive, you won't be able to have just one plate! Moist shredded chicken is paired with thick-cut crispy pieces of bacon and a creamy and cheesy ranch mixture on a bed of penne noodles for an amazing finish!
In a small bowl combine shredded chicken and dry ranch seasoning. (This is your chicken mixture.)
To a large Dutch oven over medium heat, add the chicken broth, penne, and chicken mixture. Stir to combine and then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and then cover and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the pasta is cooked to your preference. There should still be some liquid in the pot when the pasta is done cooking.
Add the cream cheese to the dutch oven and stir until most of the cream cheese has melted.
