Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to make I hate cooking but love easy meals. This was quick and tastes great. I, however, used penne made with sweet potato and per the family request, extra bacon. I think next time I'll use a little less sour cream; 1 cup seems a bit much.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't care for it it was very dry. Thought these flavors together would be great but needs something other than sour cream for the dressing. Wont make it again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Ingredients, Needs Something to Make it Pop How can you go wrong with chicken, bacon, and Ranch Sour Cream? Great texture, it just seems like the kind of bland flavour needs something to make the entire dish to "pop" a bit. I will experiment with this recipe, but right now, I am really disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good! I never cook. My husband normally does the cooking in our house. I made this recipe and he ate ALL of it. Definitely a family winner.
