Ranch Parmesan Chicken

by sunshine on March 10, 2009

The Baking Beauties have provided me with yet another tasty, easy dish to add to my list of regulars in our household (thanks, ladies!)!  It is great for a dinner of two or twenty!  Everyone is sure to rave over this dish (and they’ll think you spent hours slaving in kitchen : )

You can also add a slice of mozzarella cheese and a little marinara sauce and easily have Chicken Parmesan (which is my favorite!)!

Printable Version: Ranch-Parmesan Chicken

Ingredients:

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup dry breadcrumbs (you can also use gluten-free)
  • 1/4-1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup prepared ranch salad dressing (use bottled salad dressing, you might need a bit more dressing)

Directions:

  1. In a zip-loc plastic bag, marinade chicken breasts in ranch dressing for at least half an hour
  2. Preheat oven to 400° degrees (set oven rack to lowest position)
  3. Lightly grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish
  4. In a shallow bowl mix together the dry breadcrumbs with Parmesan cheese, seasoned salt, black pepper and garlic powder
  5. Remove chicken from marinade, allowing any excess to drip off
  6. Coat in the breadcrumb mixture
  7. Place in a single layer onto a greased baking sheet or line with non-stick foil (do NOT bake in a smaller baking dish or the bottom of the chicken will be soggy)
  8. If desired you can sprinkle black pepper over the chicken pieces
  9. Bake uncovered for about 30-35 minutes or until the chicken is cooked)

I wonder if you could also do this with blue cheese. I have had great blue cheese breaded chicken. I wonder if you would still use parmesan cheese? Your picture s beautiful!

We tried this for dinner tonight. It gets a thumbs up all the way around. Even the 16 month old enjoyed it.

I made this and the whole family loved it! Just don't put it on the bottom rack of the oven like it says because it will burn. I caught mine in time and moved it up before it burned too much and it was still good. Next time I'll do it in the middle rack. :-)

This was WONDERFUL!! I never thought to use Ranch as a marinade. My 3 year old daughter loved it as well. BIG hit in our home, and have made it a couple times since. :)
