Crispy Parmesan-Ranch Chicken Breasts (Strips or Tenders)

"I use the boxed Kellogg's cornflake crumbs for this, you can usually find them next to the Shake and Bake chicken coating mixes, if you are not able to find the boxed crumbs then you can use a processor to crush the cornflakes, reduce the baking time to 25 minutes for strips and for tenders bake only 20 minutes --- LOW-FAT OPTION use a healthy butter alternative in place of butter"

    Has anyone tried Panko crisp baking crumbs? Seems like a natural. Is there a better technique to get the crumbs to stick?

    My husband LOVED this recipe..followed it as per directions, except I only had bone-in thighs and drumsticks, but it still turned out great! Don't sub the ingredients tho, and I pre-marinated chicken in a bit of the ranch sauce mixed with water. Great recipe!

    Nice recipe Carol-I used Hidden Valley's Spicy Ranch for zip-good crunch, great flavor.

    I thought this was wonderful. I used 6 very large chicken breasts, and there was a lot of leftover breading. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. So easy and the whole family enjoyed it. I will be making this again. Another winner, Kittencal.

    Delicious! Super moist and flavorful chicken. I used chicken tenderloins and served them with onion rings. I opted to omit the garlic powder. Made for Help A Naked Recipe.
