One of the biggest challenges I see with meal planning is figuring new ways out to cook a full chicken breast. You can grill it, marinade it, bake it, or coat it. This baked ranch chicken is a nice solution to this challenge.
This chicken does not have a coating with any bread crumbs in it. You use crushed corn flakes instead. This is a delicious change and I love the texture it gives the coating. It’s nice and crispy. You sue dry ranch dressing mix in the coating for flavor along with some grated parmesan cheese. That’s all you need for coating the chicken.
Now, you do need a way to get the breading to stick to the chicken. No egg or is used in this baked ranch chicken version. Instead you use some butter. BUTTA! So good! Just dip the chicken in the melted butter before placing it in the coating mixture.
However, this isn’t fried in oil like many breaded chicken recipes so don’t feel too bad about that butter you use. Instead this breaded chicken is baked in the oven.
