double dipped ranch baked chicken breast

Recipe by

This is a slightly different version of a recipe I already have posted, the difference being instead of dredging the breasts in melted butter, I decided to dredge it the Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing first, before dredging it in the bread crumb mixture. Believe it or not these 6 pieces of chicken are from 2 chicken breasts, that I cut into 3 pieces each because of their size. This Double dipped Ranch Chicken tasted very good, and no salt was needed because of the spices I used, and the seasoning in the dry Ranch mix. The flavor is very good, and the chicken was very tasty & delicious.

How To Make double dipped ranch baked chicken breast

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. These are the main ingredients used in this recipe. Spray a shallow jelly roll type pan with non stick cooking spray & set aside till needed.
  • 2
    Using a bowl or reclosable bag, Combine Parmesan cheese with the Panko bread crumbs along with the spices and Dry ranch dressing mix packages. Shake to blend together.
  • 3
    These are the 2 Boneless skinless chicken Breast that I cut into 3 pieces each. When you can make a meal for 6 for under five dollars you are doing good.
  • 4
    Add the Ranch dressing to a platter or plate. Set aside till needed.
  • 5
    Measure out about half of the Panko crumb mixture onto a plate, pan or platter. Repeat as needed. The reasoning behind this is, if you have some of the mixture left over, you can store it in the freezer for next time, and it has not been contaminated with the wet chicken pieces.
  • 6
    Coat each piece of chicken breast with the ranch dressing by brushing it on or dredging it in the dressing on all sides. Allow excess to drip off.
  • 7
    Now place the coated chicken Breast into the seasoned bread crumbs, and coat all sides. Then place into shallow baking pan. Repeat until all the pieces of chicken have been coated with the bread crumb mixture.
  • 8
    Place pan in preheated 400 degree F. oven and bake for 45 minutes or until juices run clear and chicken is golden brown and crispy. Serve with your favorite sides and enjoy.
