April 23, 2021 | Author: Ashley McCrary

Chicken and veggies tossed in homemade ranch seasoning and cooked to perfection. Topped with homemade ranch dressing and finished with crispy bacon. Only 5 NET carbs per serving and is Keto, Paleo, and Whole30. 

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 Makes This Recipe Great

This recipe has both an air fryer and oven method. I personally love using the air fryer because cleaning up is a breeze. I also love the crispy texture it gives the veggies.

Whether you choose to use the air fryer or the oven, these chicken bacon ranch bowls are delicious, filling, and low-carb!

How to Make This Recipe

Ingredient Notes

  • Chicken Breast: I like boneless skinless chicken breast and cut it into bite-size pieces.
  • Bacon: Cook and chop your bacon beforehand.
  • Homemade Ranch Dressing: Here’s my delicious recipe.
  • Avocado oil: You can also sub olive oil if you want.
  • Veggies: Zucchini, Yellow squash, Brussel sprouts, and Yellow onion.

Step by Step

Air Fryer Method

  1. Transfer the chicken and veggies to a large bowl and drizzle with the avocado oil and the dry seasoning. Mix with a wooden spoon until everything is coated with the oil and seasoning. 
  2. Add the chicken and veggies to the air fryer and cook on 375F for 14 minutes, shaking halfway, or until the chicken and veggies are charred and chicken is cooked through. If your air fryer is small, you may have to cook them in 2-3 batches.

Oven Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F and mix all the ingredients for the ranch seasoning in a bowl. 
  2. Add the chicken and veggies to a large bowl and drizzle with the avocado oil and the dry seasoning. Mix with a wooden spoon until everything is coated with the oil and seasoning. Add everything to a coated baking sheet pan and spread out evenly. 
  3. Roast in the oven for 28-30 minutes or until the chicken reads 165F and the veggies are browned and tender. 
  4. Optional: Broil on high for 2 to 3 extra minutes to get everything extra crispy.

Mac’s Tips & Tricks

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.

Broil: If cooking in the oven, be sure to switch to broil for the last 2-3 minutes to get a nice crisp on your veggies and chicken.

Ranch Seasoning: 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.

Limited Time: 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.

FAQs

Keto Chicken Bacon Ranch Bowl: FAQs

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! Here is the air fryer I love and recommend.

How do I store leftovers?

Store any chicken bacon ranch leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator and eat within one week. Reheat in the microwave or stovetop.
