BBQ Shredded Chicken and Caramelized Red Onion Ranch Spaghetti

You guys are going to think I’m nuts with this recipe, but just wait until you sink your teeth into it! My husband was totally skeptical and ended up LOVING it along with my two little stinkers 🙂  Think BBQ chicken pizza flavors in spaghetti form…….it’s Fabulous, really! Make yourself a big slice of cheddar garlic bread and go to town!

This recipe is not only delish, but is really easy to make. Great for busy weeknights, if you don’t have time to make your own BBQ chicken like the one I have listed below don’t be ashamed to grab some good KC Masterpiece to throw on yours. It will taste great too!

Enough blabbing from me, get this recipe on your menu and let me know how you like it 🙂

A Container of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix

This was new to me, I had no idea you could buy this little plastic jar of Ranch seasoning. I was almost jumping up and down when I saw it at my Target. If you haven’t seen this at your grocery stores, every grocery store carries the little 1 oz Ranch Dressing Packet,  same seasonings inside.

I get the mini ciabatta loaves from Trader Joes, slice them, butter them, sprinkle with Lawry’s Garlic Salt then top with Cheddar Cheese and bake till crispy……Best Garlic Bread Ever!

    Winner winner Chicken Dinner! This was a hit with my EXTREMELY PICKY husband. He said “that doesn’t sound good” when I told him what I was making (again VERY PICKY). But when he tasted it is said “this is really good” which is huge b/c he very rarely compliments the food at all, so him saying that is a big deal. Thanks for sharing this easy and yummy recipe Jenny! 🙂

    My husband classifies me as a ‘Ranch-o-holic’ putting it lightly… lol… I stumbled upon your blog yesterday and made this for dinner last night… OMG it is AWESOME! Super easy and delish. I added parmesean cheese to the pasta for creaminess… both my husband and 3 year old loved it! Can’t wait to try some of your other recipes 🙂
