  • 8 slices uncooked bacon
  • 1/2 large yellow onion diced
  • 3 large carrots sliced into coins
  • 3 stalks celery sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced or pressed
  • 3 (1 oz) packets ranch seasoning mix
  • 3 (32 oz) cartons chicken broth
  • 4 cups cooked and cubed chicken about 1 store-bought rotisserie (1 pound)
  • 8 oz uncooked spaghetti noodles 1/2 box
  • 1 (8 oz) block cream cheese cubed and softened to room temperature
  • 1 (8 oz) block sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 pint half and half room temperature
  • Green onions for serving, if desired


  • Cook bacon in a large stockpot over medium heat until crispy.
  • Remove, crumble, and set aside.
  • To the hot stockpot with bacon grease, add in onion, carrots, celery, garlic, and ranch seasoning.
  • Sauté for 10 minutes, stirring regularly to prevent burning.
  • Slowly pour in broth, scraping up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan.
  • Stir in chicken and bring to a boil.
  • Stir in noodles, then simmer until al denté, according to noodle package directions. Stir regularly to prevent the noodles from clumping together.
  • Once noodles are cooked to your liking, turn off the heat.
  • Add in cream cheese, shredded cheese, half and half, and cooked and crumbled bacon.
  • Stir until cheese has melted (it takes awhile for the cream cheese to fully melt), then taste and re-season, serve and enjoy!
