I used fat free ranch dressing for this. My family like fat free ranch normally, but it did not work for this recipe. Better try regular ranch and see if that works.

This was a quick and easy recipe..I added bacon bits to it which added some flavor. My family said they liked this recipe but I'm not sure if I will make it again.

Kids liked it, but very bland.

My husband and I tried it both hot & chilled. It was a little bland, think maybe chicken was the wrong meat. Will probably try again w/ different veggies and ham instead of chicken.

The whole family liked it even my picky 8 year old took seconds. What I would add to it would be some bacon for a little extra flavor.

I really enjoyed this recipe. I added a few tweaks to it. When I was cooking the chicken, I sprinkled a few seasonings-pepper, seasoning salt and garlic powder-over the chicken. I also used Hidden Valley Peppercorn Ranch salad dressing. Both of these additions gave this salad a great new falvor. I loved how quick and easy it was to make. I know I will definatly make it again!

Great recipe. I have made a variation of this recipe for years. The only thing I do different is add some seasoning salt. Sometimes I even add bacon pieces to it.
