Reviews for Breaded Ranch Chicken
"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."
"Family favorite! I use a probe thermometer and cook to 165 degrees."
"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."
"My family absolutely loved this. And the chicken was really moist. Will make again."
"Very good and super easy!"
"This was very very good. My husband is very picky and he loved it. I did do two things one added pepper as I read the previous raters and we like pepper. The next thing instead of butter. I used the buttery spray to cut down on the fat otherwise I would have used the butter. Still it was great and this recipe is a KEEPER!!!!"
"I could make this every week!"
"I used boned in, skin on chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts. It turned out that when my hubs took leftovers to work, the smell drove all his co-workers nuts to where they were threatening him they were going to steal it. So, this morning I made a double batch, tucked it my heated carry all and he took them to work. It will be interesting to see how they really did like it, but, no matter, WE love it and would do it again in a heartbeat."
"For me personally, this had just ok flavor, not a wow-ser. Perhaps I needed to salt and pepper the chicken first for my tastes. Or maybe for me, there was too much corn flakes in the breading mixture. Corn flakes never have too much flavor, IMO. It certainly IS easy and fast and could be one of those recipes to whip up on activity night for the kids. I'm glad so many enjoyed it, though!"
"very quick and delicious"

"This was simple to make, but not my favorite chicken recipe. Good flavor though."
"This was a good recipe. It just lacked flavor for my family's taste."
"Good recipe that the whole family enjoyed - my husband said the recipe was a keeper and my 2-year old said it was yummy and I was a good cook!"
"Juicy, delicious and so easy to prepare. I used chicken tenderloin so it cooked in about 15-20 minutes."
"The EASIEST most flavorful chicken for how simple it is to make!!! DELICIOUS! I will continue to make this over and over!! Thank you taste of home!!!"
"This has become one of my signature dishes. So delicious and so easy to make. Don't forget to scrape up the pan drippings and sprinkle it over the chicken."
"This had lots of flavor. My kids (11,8 & 3) LOVED it. Usually when I try a new recipe they are skeptical, but they all voted for "its a keeper". We will have this again regularly."
"This has been a family favorite for a long time. My son & his wife tried it recently using spicy ranch dressing mix and said it was great too."
"This has been in our family's standard menu rotation for years now! Served with a salad and mashed potatoes, it's not only quick and easy; it's delicious! Every time I've served it to guests, I'm asked for the recipe."
"Recipe was esay and tasted great! I also thinly sliced potatoes, and placed them in the bottom of the baking dish with a little chicken broth.It turned out delicious!"
"Definite keeper! Easy to make with lots of flavor!"
"Absolutely delicious!! Used Italian style Panko breadcrumbs instead of cornflakes. So unbelievably good!"
"Our family has enjoyed this chicken recipe since the issue of Taste of Home in which it first appeared arrived at our home! I have also served it many times to guests, & everyone who has tried it has raved over it. Easy & relatively quick to prepare!"
"This chicken is fabulous!"
"I have been making this receipe for years. Its like a gourmet meal. People think you have been slaving away and its so simple. The crumbs are also great for Pork Chops . I double this crumb receipe and place in a jar in the freezer so I always have it ready on hand. I only use the amount I need when making the receipe. The best receipe I have ever had."
"Wonderful chicken! I didn't have corn flakes so I substituted bread crumbs and - for some extra nutritional value - ground flax meal. It was great!"
"Fantastic taste and very easy. The drippings are so yummy I like to put thinly sliced potatoes in the bottom of my baking dish. And place the chicken on top of the potatoes."
"This recipie was fantastic! I would definately make it again. I used fresh grated parmesan cheese instead of the stuff in the can, so it was a little salty but way more delicious than making it with plain old Kraft Parmesan Cheese"
"One of my "go - to" recipes when I need something quick and easy that is also delicious! We like to do chicken tenders pcs in this coating and then put it atop a green salad for a nice summertime meal!"
"So easy and moist! Didn't have cornflakes, so I used a mixture of breadcrums and panko - still came out delicious! Will definitely make again and the family loved it!"
"This is easily the most delicious breaded chicken recipe I have ever tried! It is not only very tasty, but the chicken comes out very moist. People always rave when I make this and it quickly became a family favorite. I always double the breading so I don't have to skimp, depending on the size of the chicken breasts......then I just freeze what I don't use for the next time. You will love this recipe!"
"Entire family loves this recipe!!! All ready made again"
"So tasty! This is now on our list of favorites!"
"Very good, everyone loved it!"
"My family loves this dish - thanks for sharing!"
"Very easy, and very flavorful! The chicken tastes great and stays wonderfully moist."
"Very simple to make, and very tasty. Goes well with a lot of stuff. It only rates a 4 instead of 5 because the ingredients aren't really natural. I hate to consume the corn syrup in the flakes, or the MSG in the ranch dressing packet. Tasty, but a bit of a guilty pleasure."
"Yum! Yum! Easy and delicious! Was a big hit with my family! I used extra light olive oil instead of melted butter with no problems. Almost ran out of topping, so don't plan on being able to make any more chicken breasts than the recipe calls for."
"Delicious and so easy. Will definately make again"
"Very tasty and simple to whip up !"
"SUPER SIMPLE & QUICK. IT PACKS A LOT OF TASTE FOR SOMETHING SO EASY TO PREPARE. DEFINITELY A KEEPER."
"My cousin Jenn cooked this for me and my daughters and it is out of this world!"
"This is AMAZING!! I make this dish once a week and have for years. My husband and I love it so much!!!"
"This was a quick recipe, everyone liked it, at was very good, the people around here are hard to please, but this did the trick. I would definately fix it again, and again, and again"
"This chicken is so yummy! My daughter is always asking me to make it."
"This is so good, both my sons requested this recipe and made it for their families."
"This is a wonderful coating for the chicken. It adds a different kick to the taste.Everytime I serve it, a lot of copies of this recipes goes out.HIGHLY recommend."
