Ranch Chicken Cutlets

Recipe by Marie

A great breaded chicken breast meal made with Ranch dressing mix. Also, very good using an envelope of Italian dressing mix. Super easy!

I won't issue a rating since I didn't follow the recipe exactly as written. You see, I went to make this but found that someone in my household (no one fessed up) had used up all of the parmesan cheese so I used finely shredded Mozzarella instead. It was not a good subsistute. It was edible & decent- as in just okay, but it was not great. The problem I had with the recipe was that I didn't notice it called for 6-8 chicken breasts(!) so I wrongly assumed it was calling for the usual 4 chicken breasts. I also took a cue from Rachael Ray and used cutlets instead of the breasts since they cook up much faster. I had way too much breading & melted butter remaining. I also thought it would have benefited from drizzling some of the melted butter over the top of the chicken to help it brown up in the oven.
