So, in came this recipe. Thanks to the wonderful world of the Tasty Kitchen, I came across this recipe while trying to find something to eat with very few ingredients in our apartment. It was so incredibly easy, and I love that it is baked instead of fried! The ranch gives it such flavor that you don't get in other recipes that use just milk or eggs. I was out of cornmeal, but searched online and found a great substitute-crushed tortilla chips! It turned out great! We gave this a 5/5 and will definitely add it to our list of regular meals!
Ranch "Fried" Chicken adapted from But Mama, I'm Hungry!
Total Time: 40 Minutes
- 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 cup ranch dressing
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
- 1/2 cup cornmeal (or crushed tortilla chips)
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon cajun seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
On a large plate, mix together breadcrumbs, cornmeal, parmesan cheese, cajun seasoning, and garlic salt. Pour ranch into a bowl then dip each chicken piece into ranch and then covered liberally with breadcrumb mixture. Transfer each piece of chicken onto foil covered baking sheet. Repeat until each piece is breaded.
Place baking sheet into oven and cook for 30 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
