    We loved this recipe. I didn't use the dry ranch, I had ranch salad dressing and mixed that in with the milk instead. My husband and both loved the outcome and i will definitely make this again.

    I don't like recipes that have "garlic" in the name but barely any garlic in the actual recipe. The amount called for in this recipe is barely anything. Same with the amount of ranch dressing mix. More of each needs to be added.

    I have been making this for years only with bigger size chicken breasts and I use HIDDEN VALLEY RANCH dry seasoning in the bottle as this is also good for pork chops

    Can the bottled Ranch Dressing be used?

    My wife and I both liked this recipe a lot. It's hard to find 5 ounce chicken breasts anymore, the smallest I had was 12 ounces. Cooking time was a little longer. It looked just like the picture when it was through cooking. One 12 ounce skinless boneless chicken breast was enough for the both of us. Served it with a vegetable. Will make again for sure.
