We love baked chicken recipes so this crunchy baked ranch chicken was a huge hit with us. We were craving something that was a little lighter than most of the recipes we have been sharing on the blog lately. We always pair this ranch chicken with our Broccoli and cauliflower salad, we make the salad in the morning to make our dinner routine even easier.
If you have not cooked meat, specifically chicken or turkey with mayonnaise well my friends its amazing. The fat from the mayonnaise keeps the chicken super moist while cooking in the oven, no one likes dry poultry. All you need for the crunchy baked ranch chicken is, chicken breast, mayo, breadcrumbs and hidden valley ranch seasoning packet. Mix the ranch seasoning and mayo then dredge the chicken in the mix, roll in breadcrumbs arrange the chicken on parchment lined sheet pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.
This is a great sheet pan dinner you can make in 30 minutes during the busy work week. If you are cooking for kids you could cut the chicken breast in strips and follow the same instructions in our recipe with a slightly shorter bake time. Then bam you have crispy ranch chicken strips for the kids, if you do this pick up a second pack of hidden valley ranch and make the dip following the directions on the pack. Happy cooking!
