Ranch Marinated Oven-fried Chicken

Total Time

I made this for our dinner tonight. I'm sure I've seen similar recipes on here, but couldn't find one exactly the same. I had a cup of buttermilk, and a half envelope of ranch dressing mix, and as I hate waste, I went from there to create this. Prep time doesn't include marinating the chicken.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prick the thigh cutlets all over with a fork.
  2. Mix together the buttermilk, ranch dressing mix and hot sauce.
  3. Marinate the chicken for at least 1 hour and overnight if you wish.
  4. Preheat your oven to 200C.
  5. Mix together the remaining ingredients (except spray oil) in a large bowl and dip the marinated chicken pieces into this, pressing on well.
  6. Place on a baking sheet, spray with oil and cook for about 40 minutes or until the juices run clear, reducing the oven to 180 after about 10 minutes.
  7. We ate this with a garden salad, and oven baked wedges.

This makes a great everyday chicken dish. I started out at 400 degrees and after 10 minutes lowered the temperature to 370. I marinated for an hour ( I always forget about starting the marinade earlier.) It turned out super! Made for Austraia Day cooking tag game.

This worked wonderfully for us & we found it very tasty. There was lots of marinade so I increased the thighs by 2. I used my already on-hand homemade seasoned breadcrumbs (#203857 c/o Zaar) & just added abit of cayenne. I sprayed the prepared thighs abit with cooking spray prior to cooking. Easy to make & yummy, thanks for sharing.

This did not turn out as good as I had hoped. I thought it was a little bland and did not crisp up in the oven.
