Crumb-Coated Ranch Chicken Recipe

How do you get so much flavor out of a five-ingredient-or-fewer recipe? Ranch dressing is the key! Enjoy this simple dish on busy weeknights or with company for special occasions.—LaDonna Reed of Ponca City, Oklahoma
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup ranch salad dressing
  • 2 cups coarsely crushed cornflakes
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 400°. Place salad dressing in a shallow bowl. In a separate shallow bowl, mix cornflakes, Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Dip chicken in dressing, then in cornflake mixture, patting to help coating adhere.
  • 2. Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake 30-35 minutes or until a thermometer reads 165°. Yield: 4 servings.

"Tasty chicken. I substituted crushed rice krispies for the corn flakes because no corn flakes in the house. I also used some sprinkled garlic granules in place of a tsp. of garlic powder. Nice change of pace for chicken."

"So moist and tender! I was out of cornflakes, but I found some old pretzels in the pantry. I crushed them and used them instead. They worked great. I agree they could use a little more flavor, think I'll add some dry ranch mix to the coating next time."

"Wonderful dish, we really enjoyed it! The ranch added rich flavor, and made the chicken juicy and moist too. I didn't have corn flakes on hand so I used crushed black-pepper flavored kettle-cooked potato chips instead. This added some extra crispiness and kick!"
