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.

How to Make Garlic Ranch Honey Dijon Chicken

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!
