Ranch Baked Chicken

These breaded chicken thighs are brown and crunchy on the outside, yet juicy and tender in the middle. 


I was going to make the usual ranch chicken using the ranch dressing. When I went to the cabinet to get it, it was all gone. Someone used it all up. So I went through my cabinets to see what I could to replace it. I looked at the ingredients on the ranch package so I have an idea of what goes into it. Dont get me wrong, I dont have the exact measurements of the secret recipe, but this time I decided to wing it.

My niece Nicki makes something similar to this, but she uses the ranch dressing and boneless skinless chicken breasts. I used the recipe once to make chicken tenders.

I love this because the chicken is baked and not fried. Not to mention that the Panko makes them extra crispy like they are fried.

Did I mention how easy it is to make? If you don’t believe me then watch the video and it will show you just how I made it!
