I can't get over how easy and totally delicious these chicken thighs were. Dipping the thighs in the Ranch dressing is genius. The coating was very nice too. Gave them a little crunch. Thanks Kelly. A new enthusiastic family fav. UPDATE: Sorry, I forgot the stars. So here it is again--same review but with stars. ;)
I scaled this recipe to feed 10 , I left the skin on. This recipe was perfect. I have very picky eaters and one that doesn't like meat. They all ate it , loved it and called it heaven on a plate.
Kelly, this is a great way to cook chicken thighs. I used boneless, skinless thighs. The coating was crunchy and adhered well. The chicken meat was very moist and tender. Kudos for the idea of dipping in ranch dressing. It adds a lot to the flavor and moistness. More than satisfied my family of six. Thanks!!
Absolutely delicious! I took the suggestions of a couple of reviewers and used Panko bread crumbs and added about a teaspoon of Smoked Paprika - Excellent! Flavor was fantastic! I added a little salt later as I like it as a flavor booster and my honeybunny doesn't so if you feel it needs a little boost you can try that. I thought it was a wonderful recipe, thanks for sharing!!!
I don't know about the one person who didn't like this... I think it's great. I've made it with the skin off, bone in & boneless skinless and i've done it with breasts.. (advise cutting them in half) I've done it with blue chhese, with ranch & with chunky garlic ceasar.. I think I added extra seasonong, because I am so used to breading & baking that I just always add paprika & cracked black pepper. Don't shoot the poster if you like things spicier, just add more spice. It's a good recipe. One less dish than the flour egg & crumb as the dressing is the first 2 steps. Thank-you Kiwi...Oh, right, you're from Kentucky, not New Zealand ...thanks KeyWee. Good dish..delish!
Sorry it took so long to review. I've made this with skin on and off and delicious both ways. I only have unflavored plain bread crumbs on hand, so I usually use some Lawry's seasoning salt and black pepper in the crumb mixture. Thanks so much for posting this almost 10 years ago :) I absolutely love this recipe!
I took a package of boneless skinless chicken thighs out for dinner, then wondered what to do with them. I found this recipe and I really liked the fact that I had all the ingredients on hand. DH liked it, and the coating was just crunchy enough but not too crunchy, and the chicken was moist.
This was so good, and so easy! The only thing that I did different was use panko crumbs. The meat was moist on the inside, and very crispy on the outside. I used boneless skinless thighs. This is going to go into my 'make often' file! Thank you for posting!
We loved this recipe! Left the skin on for Hubby who likes crispy things. This skin came out very crispy. I didn't have any ranch but used homemade blue cheese. The chicken was moist and flavorful. I did adjust some of the seasonings, only because I mistakenly put in 1 TB of Italian Seasoning by mistake. I usually use more seasoning in the breading because the seasonings tend to get "lost" in the bread crumbs. Or another way to add more flavor is to simply put a rub of the seasonings on the chicken first, dredge in dressing, and then in the seasoned bread crumbs Great recipe! Yum is all I need to say!
Thank you for sharing this simple, quick and delicious recipe. I made my own ranch and it was very thick and I found that I should have doubled both the crumb mixture and the dressing. I used potato chips for the crumbs and my own blend of herbs for the seasoning (oregano, basil and garlic). The leftover chicken reheats well and makes an amazing sandwich.
