Easy Ranch Chicken

"My kids love this recipe. It's flavorful and yet easy to make. I place baked potatoes in oven at the same time. Then use the rest of the dry ranch to make topping for the potatoes or salad."

    Very very good recipe. Next time though, I think that I will pound the breasts down a bit to give more surface area for the coating. Also, despite the sodium in the ranch mix, I found that the chicken needed some salt. Maybe that would be a bit different though if I used thinner breasts. Try using the leftover mix on potatoes with a bit of oil and roast with the chicken. Yum!

    This was FABULOUS! I had been searching for some recipes to use up a container of ranch dressing mix I bought last year and found this. I used 1/2 regular and 1/2 italian-style panko and probably 2 tbs of the ranch mix (2/3 of a packet). I also added a touch of water to the egg mix to thin it out a bit. Lastly, I sprayed the tops of the chicken with PAM rather than add butter, and then cooked 3 large boneless skinless breasts about 30 minutes and they came out PERFECT!! So crispy outside and moist inside. It was all I coudl do not to lick the plate! Also, add the remaining ranch dressing mix to your mashed potatoes with some cheese and chives and you will be in heaven! I will definitely be making this again!

    Is it me or why can I not see how much salt/pepper/butter to add?


I live in Ohio. I have 2 boys who are always hungry. My husband does most of the cooking but I enjoy doing it when I can. I love to cook anything simple and easy because i have no timing in the kitchen.
