Reviews for Crumb-Coated Ranch Chicken
"Shall I assume a 350 degree oven? OOPS! How did I miss oven temp in first sentence of instructions?"
"This was good and I would make it again, but could use a little more flavor in the crumb coating."
"Delicious and easy to make!"
"My family loves this recipe! I used crushed up saltine crackers in place of the cornflakes bc it what I had on hand."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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!"
"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."
"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"
"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."
