Monterey Ranch Chicken Bread

Yep, you read right. Last nights dinner was a recipe I've been using for the last year ever since I  found it over at Plain Chicken. When I read the recipe all I could do is drool over how yummy the ingrediants looked together. This recipe always reminds me of a couple Summers ago visiting  my sister in California when she ordered us ranch pizza for dinner one night. I thought it was weird to me at first, believe it or not, I had never heard of ranch pizza before, but boy was that good. So with that idea in mind, my version of the original recipe is a bit different. I added 2 chicken breasts, a tomatoe and about four green onions so that I could make it into a meal and more filling.




Below is the recipe from Plain Chicken and also with the ingrediants I added, which is totally optional. We also had this with a salad which worked out great together!



Recipe from Plain Chicken
4 Tbsp butter, softened (or buttery spread like SmartBalance)
garlic powder
1 loaf French bread, split in half lengthwise
2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
3/4 cups ranch dressing
Spread butter on bread and sprinkle with garlic powder (to taste). Place bread under the broiler until it’s slightly brown and crispy.
Combine cheese and ranch dressing and divide evenly over bread. Place in a 350 degree oven until cheese is melted, about 10-12 minutes (longer if you want the bread crispier). Let sit a few minutes before slicing
The following is what I did before placing the bread in the oven. This is optional.
What I added (Optional)
2 boneless skinless chicken breast
1 tomatoe
4 green onions
Season and cook chicken thoroughly, wait until cool and then cut into small chunks. Dice up tomatoe and cut up green onions. After you add the ranch and cheese spread to the bread then top with chicken, diced tomatoes and green onions. 
Place in a 350 degree oven until cheese is melted, about 10-12 minutes (longer if you want the bread crispier). Let sit a few minutes before slicing.
Hope you all enjoy, would love to hear back from you if you do try this recipe and tell me how it was for you. Have a great day!
