“My family loved a local restaurant’s chicken wings, but when we tried to make them at home, we couldn’t figure out how to get their ranch flavor right,” recalls Jennifer Bender of Venice, Florida. “When I found a dried dressing mix, I knew it would be perfect for the wings.”

"The wings are good. The first time I made them, I followed the directions shown. The wings were too salty. So what I now do is put the dressing mixture in a shaker and sprinkle on the wings, in lieu of putting in a plastic bag."

"These were excellent. Istead of frying them first, I baked them than breaded them in the ranch seasoning and baked them some more. They tasted just like the ones from Walmart but juicier."

"These were delicious as an appetizer for a family dinner. There were no leftovers. I recommend mincing the garlic with a knife rather than using a grater plate. The garlic got too wet and I had to add flour to the ranch mixture to get rid of the clumps."

"My husband and I love these wings so much I have to double the recipe! A winner to bring along to a picnic. The kids especially like them because they are not spicy hot. Thank you Jennifer for the recipe"
