A coating containing cornflakes, Parmesan cheese and ranch dressing mix adds delectable flavor to the chicken pieces in this recipe and bakes to a pretty golden color. It's a mainstay main dish I can always count on. -Launa Shoemaker, Landrum, South Carolina

"So simple, easy, and delicious! I confess to adding some seasonings to the breading mixture: salt, pepper, paprika, and poultry seasoning. Thanks for sharing this tastes-like-fried-chicken-but-so-much-healthier recipe!"

"easy to assemble and yummy! I used panko bread crumbs in place of the cornflakes, because that's what I had on hand. And substituted mayo for the butter - just a personal preference. Will definitely make this again, and try it with the butter and cornflakes next time. Either way, a great weeknight dinner!"

"This recipe was a success! It is hard to find fast, easy and delicious recipes as a busy wife and grad student. It is extremely hard to find recipes that my husband and I both like. He gave this two thumbs up. I served with a side salad. Will be making this dish again and pairing with different side dishes."

"Tender and juicy. Due to sodium restricted diet used unsalted butter and made my own ranch dressing seasoning. Certainly did not lack flavor and kids loved it."

"Made this recently for the family. Everyone enjoyed it and the chicken was moist. I actually found a chipotle ranch dry mix which added a nice flavor."

"I have to agree with LovePgh55 as this dish had very little taste to my husband and me. It was an easy dish to prepare, but my husband said this was NOT A KEEPER, that I could find a much better-tasting recipe for chicken than this one."

"This is great. I have made this twice now. Both times I used panko instead of cornflakes because that is what I had on hand. To save time I baked it on a baking sheet at 425 degrees for 25 minutes. This has replaced my families go to recipe for chicken breasts."
