Ranch Marinated Oven-fried Chicken

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by JustJanS

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.

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.
