Cheddar Ranch Smothered Chicken

4 -6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
8 -12 slices bacon
1 -2 cup cheddar cheese (I used Mexican Blend and it was good)
1 (8 ounce) cream cheese, softened
1 (1 ounce) packet hidden valley ranch dressing mix
14 cup half-and-half
2 tablespoons olive oil


Lay out stips of bacon on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees while browning the chicken. Lightly brown chicken in olive oil and place in a 9 x 13 dish sprayed with cooking spray. Take out bacon and place 2 pieces of bacon over each chicken breast. Sprinkle with 1/3 of your cheddar cheese. Bake at 400 degrees until almost done. While that is cooking mix together the softned cream cheese, ranch dressing mix, and enough halfn-half to bring the mixture to the consistency of ranch dressing. When chicken is almost done, drizzle dressing mixture lightly over chicken then add to rest of your cheese and cook until the cheese is melted and juices run clear.
