Garlic Ranch Honey Dijon Chicken

This is a nice method to use with any left-over dressings in your fridge; better to use it than to let it sit there and expire (which is what happens to me a lot with the dressings!).

I had honey dijon and ranch dressing to use this weekend; this chicken came out tasting so extremely full-flavored... everyone loved it. I served it with sides of brown rice and steamed carrots, broccoli and califlour. Since the chicken has so much flavor, I didn't add seasonings to the rice or veggies.

Ingredients

12
chicken drumsticks
1 Tbsp
sea salt
1 Tbsp
pepper
1 Tbsp
garlic
1 Tbsp
paprika
1 pkg
ranch seasoning packet (i used hidden valley)
1 pkg
garlic and herb seasoning packet (i used lipton)
1/4 c
ranch dressing
2 c
honey dijon dressing
2 Tbsp
balsamic vinegar
1/2 c
olive oil
2 c
breadcrumbs

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Wash chicken and pat dry. Put chicken in big mixing bowl with all the spices and seasonings. Mix together so all chicken is coated with the spices.
2
In separate bowl, mix together the dressings, 1/4 cup olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
3
Pour dressing mixture over chicken. Cover bowl with plastic wrap or plastic plate; let marinate in fridge for about 3-4 hours.
4
(You can also put chicken in big ziplock bag and let it marinate in fridge that way. I like doing this because I can take out the chicken every once in a while and squeeze the bag to "mix the marinade").
5
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375*. Pour 1/4 cup olive oil into casserole dish, and put it in the oven to heat it up.
6
In the meantime, pour breadcrumbs onto plate.
7
After about 5-7 minutes, take out hot pan. Set aside.
8
Take chicken out one by one with tongs, roll in breadcrumbs to coat lightly, and set into casserole pan.
9
Bake uncovered for 35-40 minutes (till juices run clear). Enjoy!
