Reviews for Crumb-Coated Ranch Chicken
"Even if you leave out the garlic powder there is plenty of flavor."
"Such a good recipe! A hit with my family. Definate keeper!"
"Excellent and easy to make. I will be making this again soon!"
"very easy to prepare . I'd make it again"
"Made this just as recipe says. It was delicious and have made it twice. Both times it was a hit. I liked that is was so easy to prepare. Even served cold, friends came back for seconds."
"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."
"Great recipe. My husband went back for more a couple times. So easy, quick, and moist. i plan on making this for some friends. It is a keeper:-)"
"Winner Winner. Chicken dinner! Used parm as suggested."
"Very tasty; even pleased my husband who is not a fan of chicken. I didn't have any ranch on hand so substituted zero-fat blue cheese. I also added a teaspoon of Taste of Home's California garlic pepper blend."
"This recipe was so easy and delicious. The chicken was so tender and it melted in my mouth. It was even great the next day reheated for lunch. I will make this again and again."
"Winner! Everyone liked it! Kids even asked for seconds!"
"This is a good basic recipe. I can see lots of possibilities. We enjoyed it very much. Next time, I may add Parmesan cheese. I recommend this recipe as a Field Editor for Taste of Home"
"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!"
"This recipe was easy & delicious. The whole family enjoyed eating it. I made it in smaller chunks rather than the whole piece, easy eating for a toddler. Might try adding shredded parmesan next time around."
"My kids LOVE chicken prepared this way. I also bake at a lower temp to prevent it drying out. I use Italian seasoning to flavor things from soup to sauces."
"My husband and I liked this. My kids, not so much. I used Lite Ranch. It was easy to make and I will make it again on a weeknight."
"We used light Hidden Valley Ranch Homestyle dressing and packaged cornflake crumbs. My husband thought it was bland, and it was very dry. My 4 and 2 yr. old didn't like it, and wouldn't eat it. We won't be making again."
"so easy & so good! I used spicy ranch dressing and mixed some parmesan in with the corn flakes."
"Quick and easy, This one is the best!"
"Used fat free ranch and corn flake crumbs, thought it was a little dry - but I would used lower temp next time 375 degrees"
"This is so simple and quick to fix! The entire family loved it. Even the 5 yr. old can help to make it.! Reheats nicely without making cornflakes soggy.Hungry Family"
"I cook lunch for a bunch of hungry guys. They love this recipe. I like to buy the dry ranch dressing packets and make my dressing from scratch. I save half of it and serve it with a lettuce salad for a quick and satisfing meal."
"Nothing spectacular about this. My kids complained about it, so I probably won't be making again. Thanks, though."
"I used Light Ranch dressing.. tasted great... also great added to a little pasta with spicy tomato sauce."
