Ingredients

3 cups chicken, cooked and either shredded or diced

1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, finely grated

1 cup potato chips, gently crushed for that added crunch

1 1/4 cups creamy mayonnaise

1 cup celery, diced to perfection

1/4 cup bacon, crispy and crumbled

1 tablespoon ranch seasoning blend

1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon savory Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon onion powder for that hint of depth

Salt and freshly ground pepper, to ensure a balanced taste

Instructions

1. Start by preheating your oven to a cozy 350º F. Take a square baking dish and lightly coat it with your choice of butter or a non-stick spray.

2. Dive into mixing: Combine your chicken, cheddar cheese, diced celery, and crumbled bacon in a spacious bowl.

3. In a separate, more compact bowl, concoct a dressing by whisking together the mayonnaise, ranch seasoning, zesty lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and onion powder. Season this mix with a dash of salt and a sprinkle of pepper to elevate the flavors.

4. Gently fold the mayonnaise-based dressing into the chicken mix, ensuring every bit is generously coated.

5. Transfer this delightful mixture into your prepped baking dish.

6. For the grand finale, sprinkle the top with your slightly crushed potato chips. These chips will turn golden and offer an irresistible crunch.

7. Bake this concoction in your oven for approximately 25-30 minutes. The cue to perfection? A bubbling mixture with cheese melted to a gooey goodness.

Once done, remove from the oven and serve it piping hot. Let each spoonful comfort and satiate your soul.
