Cook pasta according to the instructions on the packaging. Drain and keep warm.
Dice chicken, season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle flour over chicken and toss to coat.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink.
Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, mix together sour cream, cream cheese, Ranch mix, half and half and minced garlic.
Add cooked pasta and chicken to the garlic mixture and stir all together. Transfer the mixture into the prepared dish.
At this point, you can cover the dish with saran wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve. Before baking let it sit in room temperature while the oven preheats. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until it sizzles and the cheese is melted.
If serving right away, top the dish with cheese and bake for 10 minutes at 375 degree F oven. The cheese should be melted. You can then turn the oven to broiler (on low setting) and broil for 2 to 3 minutes or until the cheese bubbles up and gets golden brown spots.
Let stand in room temperature for 10 minutes before serving.
