Hey, friend. How are you? How’s your week going? 💛
So, I’ve included Fiesta Ranch Chicken on my “What We’re Eating” posts over the past few months, but I cannot — for the life of me — find a recipe of it online (though I have found some other ones when Googling “fiesta ranch chicken” that look delicious and that are on my list to try).
A couple of years ago, I was at a girl’s night and one of my friends made it for dinner. I had her text me the recipe right away. It quickly became one of my family’s absolute favorite meals!
So, here are some things I’d like you to know about Fiesta Ranch Chicken: 1) it’s super easy to make, 2) it’s one of the few things my kids will eat for leftovers, 3) the recipe can easily be doubled or tripled if you want to batch cook a bunch and freeze it for later, 4) it goes great with rice. I’ve heard it also tastes yummy with noodles, but I’ve never tried it with noodles — so I can only recommend rice. Finally, 4) it does NOT win any beauty contests. Like, not even a little bit. But that’s okay, that’s okay. It has a great personality. 😉💛
Seriously — it’s so good! I hope you love it as much as we do.
