There is nothing much tastier than crispy cooked chicken breasts.

They are juicy and tender on the inside, whilst still being crispy, crunchy and deliciously golden on the outside!

Baked Ranch Chicken Breasts

The best way to serve up your crispy baked chicken breasts is with a little ranch sauce for a tangy taste!

You can eat these chicken breasts as a snack, or pair with some veggies or pasta for a filling main meal.

What Ranch Dressing Should I use?

We also recommend that you use the best ranch dressing from a jar. With a jar, you can be very generous with the amount you use, and trust us you will need a lot to cover and coat all of your chicken breasts.

Our favorite ranch dressings are:

Kraft Ranch Salad Dressing (1 gal Jug)

Or the smaller version:

Kraft Classic Ranch Salad Dressing (8 fl oz Bottle)

Or try the Hidden Valley gluten free ranch dressing:

Hidden Valley Easy Squeeze Original Ranch Salad Dressing & Topping, Gluten Free, Keto-Friendly - 20 Ounce Bottle - Pack of 6 (Package May Vary) (SA 100)

Once cooked, these baked ranch chicken breasts can be served with mayonnaise, barbeque sauce, ketchup, or even dip them in mustard. Our favorite way to serve this chicken is with a little hot sauce to balance out the ranch flavoring.

You can substitute chicken thighs and panko breadcrumbs in this chicken recipe. Any variety of ranch dressing mix will do in this ranch chicken recipe. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, homemade ranch seasoning is always welcome in creamy ranch chicken.

How to make Baked Ranch Chicken Breasts

If you want to make this delicious recipe for yourself, then get ready to preheat your oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit, and line a baking sheet with some parchment paper ready for the chicken.

The next step is to grab a bowl, and fill it with your ranch sauce or dressing. Then, you will need another bowl, and fill that one with the breadcrumbs. Grab your chicken breasts and then dip them in the ranch dressing and then coat them with the breadcrumbs.

Make sure that you turn the chicken in the breadcrumbs and coat the whole piece evenly. Once all pieces of chicken are coated, then you can place them on the parchment paper lined baking sheet, and bake for around 30 minutes.

To check when your baked chicken is ready, you will need to check the internal temperature of 165 degrees fahrenheit, or until cooked throughout and the juices run clear.

With this recipe, you can serve up baked ranch chicken for all of your friends, neighbors and family, and you will soon be the most favored home cook in town!

Our Top Tips

If you want an extra burst of flavor, then you can also wrap the chicken in bacon strips if you are a bacon lover!

We also recommend that you serve some steamed vegetables or some rice with your baked chicken.

You can also slice up the chicken breasts, and serve with some linguine or pasta for a new twist on the recipe.
