The addition of crumbled bacon adds a salty and smoky flavor, while the carrots and celery add a crunchy texture.

3 cups cooked shredded or chopped chicken breast (about 450g)
1 10.5 oz. can condensed chicken soup (295g)
6 cups low-sodium chicken stock (1.5L)
1 cup whole milk (240ml)
1/2 cup chopped celery (about 70g)
2 medium carrots sliced (about 150g)
1 1 oz. packet Ranch dressing mix (28g)
12 slices of thick cut bacon cooked and crumbled (about 200g)
1 1/2 cups shredded mild cheddar cheese (about 170g)
3/4 cup cream cheese softened (about 170g)
8 oz. Thin Spaghetti or Angel Hair – uncooked (about 225g)
Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crispy. Drain on paper towels and crumble into small pieces. Set aside.
In a large Dutch oven, combine the chicken, condensed soup, chicken stock, milk, cream cheese, carrots, celery, ranch dressing mix, and crumbled bacon. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
Reduce the heat to medium-low and let the soup simmer for 20-25 minutes.
Add the uncooked spaghetti noodles and shredded cheddar cheese to the pot. Simmer until the noodles are fully cooked, stirring occasionally.
Serve hot and top with extra crumbled bacon, if desired.

If you don’t have Ranch dressing mix, you can substitute it with 1 tablespoon of dried parsley, 1 tablespoon of dried dill, and 1 teaspoon each of garlic powder and onion powder.
For a spicier version, you can add a dash of hot sauce or red pepper flakes.
