This is a pretty quick meal to put together and so, so delicious!  The chicken is cooked in the bacon grease, then everything combines beautifully in a delicious ranch sauce.  YUM!  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-1/2 lb garden rotini
-6 slices thick cut, apple-wood smoked bacon
-2 chicken breasts, boneless,skinless, cut into bite size chunks
-1 (1 oz) packet ranch dry salad dressing mix
-2 Tbs flour
-1 1/4 cups milk
-shredded Parmesan cheese
Directions:
Cook pasta according to package instructions.  Drain.
Meanwhile, heat up a large skillet.  Cut the bacon into small strips.  Place in skillet and cook until nice and crisp.  Remove onto plate lined with paper towels.  
Drain most of the bacon grease, leaving about 2-3 Tbs in the skillet.  Return skillet to stove and add the chicken chunks.  Cook until golden brown.  Sprinkle chicken with the flour and dry ranch.  Give it a good stir and cook for 30 seconds.  Add the milk.  Cook for a couple of minutes or until thickened.  Stir in the bacon and drained pasta. Mix well.
Scoop onto plate and top with shredded Parmesan.  Enjoy!
