Chicken Bacon Ranch and Veggies (Air Fryer & Oven)

This Chicken Bacon Ranch and Veggies recipe was developed during a fridge clean-out night. On this specific evening, we were in a hurry because it was gymnastics night. However, I got this recipe on the table in less than 30 minutes. It’s now a family favorite and on my menu weekend because of how easy and flavorful it is!

What Are The Different Cooking Methods For This Recipe

This recipe has both an air fryer or oven method. I recommend using the air fryer because cleaning up is a breeze. I also love the crispy texture it gives the veggies. If you are in a hurry and need it quicker, feel free to sauté the veggies with the seasoning and chop up a rotisserie chicken. In addition, this recipe is perfect for a quick Sunday meal prep.

What is the Best Air Fryer to Purchase?

I’ve used the GoWise brand for almost 2 years now and I won’t ever go to another brand. I used to have the 5.8 quart and recently upgraded to the 7 quarts. It was the best decision to upgrade because it is large enough to where I don’t have to cook in batches. If you are debating on size, GO FOR THE 7 QUART!

Below is the air fryer I love and recommend:

Tips and Tricks For This Chicken Bacon Ranch and Veggies

  • Feel free to sub any veggies of your choice. I love the combination of Brussels sprouts, squash, zucchini, and onions. If that’s not for you simply sub in your favorites.
  • If cooking in the oven, be sure to switch to broil the last 2-3 minutes to get a nice crisp on your veggies and chicken.
  • My homemade dry ranch seasoning is perfect for this recipe. However, adding my actual dressing over the tops takes the flavors up a notch. In my opinion, it’s important to use the dry mix and make actual dressing to top with.
