I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Chicken Bacon Ranch (CBR)
...in your mind.

Chicken Bacon Ranch (CBR)

This is a little bit of work, but the result is crazy good.  My boys pronounced it the “greatest sandwich I had ever made.

3-4 Sandwiches


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Avocado oil
  • Blackening Seasoning
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk or regular milk
  • 3 tablespoons each chopped fresh parsley, dill & chives ( or 1/2 teaspoon each dried)
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon each Kosher salt & fresh ground black pepper
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 6-8 slices cooked, crispy bacon
  • shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 6-8 slices of your favorite bread (I used a light wheat in this video)


  1. Heat oven to 350 and a cast iron to almost smoking
  2. Lightly oil chicken, and season liberally on both sides with the blackening seasoning
  3. Sear in the pan, about 2 minutes a side until beautiful, dark color develops then put pan into the oven and cook until chicken registers 160 degrees in the thickest part - remove, let cool slightly and slice into strips against the grain
  4. While it cooks make the ranch - in a large bowl put the mayo, sour cream & buttermilk, fresh herbs, 1 clove of the garlic, onion powder, s & p and lemon juice - mix well to combine and set aside.
  5. Melt butter with remaining minced garlic, and brush on outside slices bread, then grill on a flattop of nonstick pan until toasty
  6. Build: one slice of bread with the garlic butter face down, top with ranch, iceberg lettuce, sliced chicken, bacon and the top pieced of bread with more ranch
  7. Eat
