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!)!

  • 1/4-1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon garlic powder

  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)
