In measuring cup, beat chicken broth and ranch seasoning with a whisk. Pour mixture over chicken.

Cover and cook on low to medium heat for 20 minutes.

While the chicken is cooking, cook the bacon and drain on paper towels. Cool slightly before crumbling into bits. 

When chicken is done, transfer to a cutting board and shred.

Pile some of the chicken onto each bottom bun. Top with bacon, cheese, green onions and/or jalapeños.  Serve warm.

    I only eat organic, healthy food, so having a bacon-ranch chicken sandwich is typically out of the question. but this recipe was actually EXTREMELY easy and so tasty! I used low-fat ranch and pita bread and it blew my socks off
