Nothing easier than this recipe! Lovely crisp juicy chicken
- 1 broiler-fryer chicken, bone in, skin on, cut into 6-8 pieces
- 1 (1 ounce) package hidden valley ranch dressing mix
- 1⁄4 cup breadcrumbs
- Mix the breadcrumbs and Dressing mix in a plastic bag.
- Put chicken in the bag and shake until coated.
- Bake in 375F oven for 50 minutes.
My family loved it! I followed the recipe very closely. It baked longer but that didn't affect it.
I can't WAIT to make this again! I used two big bone-in breasts and subbed 1/3 cup of panko for the bread crumbs. I also sprayed the tops with a little cooking spray. We ended up devouring chicken that was crunchy and a gorgeous golden brown on the outside, and wonderfully moist and juicy on the inside. It would likely be equally delicious served cold. Maybe the best part is that with a recipe such as this, there's no need to fry. Thanks, Bergy! And my waistline thanks you too!
This is a great little recipe for when I don't feel like going to a lot of trouble. Being the only meat eater in my house, I like to buy 2 small packages of drumsticks, shake them up in the mixture, divide by individual servings and freeze in plastic freezer bags. They can go straight from the freezer and into the oven, & it just takes maybe 10-15 extra minutes for them to cook up (And theres no breading wasted).
