Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven: Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Prep Dredge: In a shallow plate, combine the ranch dressing mix with the breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese. Place the mayo in another shallow plate.
  • Coat Chicken: Dredge the chicken breasts first through mayo on both sides, then through the breadcrumb mixture. Place into the prepared baking dish.
  • Bake: Transfer the baking dish to the preheated oven and bake for 40 minutes or until a thermometer reads 165°F when inserted into the thickest part of the chicken breast.

Notes

  1. You can mix some spices into your breadcrumbs like chili powder, jerk spice, etc. Get creative with your coating!
  2. Get yourself an  instant-read thermometer. Trust me, it will change the game!
  3. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
  4. To reheat so the chicken stays crispy, bake at 400°F for 5 minutes or until heated through. Keep a close eye on them to make sure it doesn’t burn.
  5. You can freeze this ranch chicken either before or after baking. Place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap, freeze for 1-2 hours, then transfer them to a large freezer bag or airtight container. This will prevent them from freezing into a block together. Freeze for up to 3 months!
