You guys! The other morning Quinn turned on Christmas music. Can you believe it?? I mean, we aren’t even to Halloween yet, but I kind of loved it. Though, it also gave me a minor panic attack. We are almost to Halloween! And then comes what is not just the busiest time of year for me as a blogger, but also as a mom! The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is no joke.
Side note: Do you guys feel like I always start my posts talking about how busy I am? Second thought . . . don’t answer that.
It’s true though. I feel like we are constantly RUNNING. And I know that so many of you with little kiddos feel that way too. You want to give them everything life has to offer, but it makes life kind of crazed and stressful. And that means we both need as many easy dinner recipes as we can fit into our packed lives.

THIS STUFFED CHICKEN BREAST RECIPE IS EASY, DELICIOUS, AND SURE TO BE A FAMILY FAVORITE.
You start by slicing open some boneless skinless chicken breasts. Season them with salt and pepper. Whip together some cream cheese and ranch dressing mix. Then you add cheddar cheese to each breast, the cream cheese mixture, and then close them and secure them with a toothpick. Sear them for three minutes on each side in the skillet you cooked some bacon in. Season them more, bake them, top them with more cheddar and bacon and enjoy!
Tips to make this recipe turn out perfectly
- Use room temperature cream cheese, it will make the whipping so much easier.
- If your family loves ranch seasoning, you might want to add just a little bit more.
- Use slices of cheddar cheese, instead of shredded, because it both stays in place and melts better.
- If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, invest in one. This is just one of many recipes that you will love making in it.
