Garlic Ranch Chicken

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Vino Girl

This makes such moist and tender chicken! Before grilling, I sprinkled a little black pepper and some cajun seasoning on this. The prep time includes marinading in the refrigerator for half an hour, although it is better if you can do it longer. ***Edited to add OAMC Instructions at the end of the recipe. Thank you to *Maggie* and the OAMC Forum. :)

Very easy recipe with only a few ingredients that are almost always on hand. Chicken comes out moist and flavorful. I did substitute a Buttermilk Ranch with Bacon dressing instead of fat free. Even our 18 month-old ate some of this and he's not much into meat.
