Cracked Out Chicken Casserole by Beth

Taken from

3 c. cooked chicken breast, cut into cubes
16 oz. sour cream
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 pkg (3 oz) bacon pieces
3 T. homemade ranch seasoning (see prior blog entry) or 1 pkg dry ranch dressing mix
2 c. shredded cheddar cheese, divided
2 lb. bag frozen tater tots

In large bowl, combine chicken, sour cream, soup, bacon, ranch seasoning, and 1c. cheese.  Fold in frozen tots and stir until everything is well combined.  Spoon into greased 9x13 pan.  Cover and freeze.

Serving Day:
Thaw in the refrigerator.  Bake at 350 for 45-60 min, or until lightly browned and bubbly.  Add remaining cheese on the top.  Return to oven until cheese is melted.

Homemade Ranch Seasoning by Beth

Here is a homemade alternative to buying the packets of ranch dressing seasonings.  It's a lot cheaper and isn't full of preservatives!

1 c. dry buttermilk powder (found in the baking aisle with powdered milk)
2 T. dried parsley
2 t. dried minced onion
2 t. dill weed
2 t. garlic salt
2 t. garlic powder
2 t. onion powder
1 t. salt
1 t. sugar
1/2 t. pepper

Mix all ingredients in bowl until combined.  Store in the refrigerator (as well as extra powdered buttermilk).  3 Tbsp is equivalent to 1 packet of dry ranch seasoning.
