Directions

  1. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil and set heat to medium-low; keep the water at a low boil while you complete remaining steps.
  2. Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and black pepper. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat and cook chicken breasts in the hot butter until browned and no longer pink inside, about 8 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a platter, cover loosely with aluminum foil, and keep warm.
  3. Whisk ranch dressing and Dijon mustard together in a bowl. Pour white wine into skillet; scrape and dissolve any browned bits of food in the bottom of the skillet into wine. Whisk ranch dressing mixture the skillet, reduce heat to low, and bring sauce to a simmer.
  4. Cook angel hair in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain pasta and toss lightly with ranch sauce.
  5. Divide pasta between 4 serving plates and top each serving with a chicken breast. Spoon remaining sauce over chicken breasts and sprinkle with parsley.

Loved this dish! My husband said this dish tasted great and I could make it anytime. I did tweak it a little since we like bold flavors, I added blackened seasoning to the chicken instead of just salt and pepper. Also I used light ranch dressing. I didn't measure and estimated the amounts of dijon, ranch dressing and white wine in the sauce. I probably added a little more white wine and a little less dijon. After tasting the sauce it was really tangy so I added about a tablespoon of sugar to offset that and it was perfect. This is such a wonderfully delicious and easy recipe. We will be making it again. Thanks for sharing.

My husband thought this was great. I couldn't eat it. I literally had two bites and couldn't handle the tangyness of the dish. I tasted the sauce after making it (followed the recipe exactly) and it was so strong that I decided to add some sugar like Occasional Cooker did. It slightly improved but I still did not like it. My husband did enjoy it so I will make it again but will greatly reduce the amount of dijon in the sauce.

My hubby liked this a lot! I made it with the exact ingredients but in a little different proportion plus a little olive oil to mix with the butter when cooking the chicken.. I used a Costco packet of boneless skinless chicken breasts, a mix of 4 tablespoons of ranch dressing and 2 tablespoons of Dijon, and all the wine. It was very easy to put together and very easy to serve. He thanks you very much for the recipe!

I made this recipe without the pasta, just wanting a dressing for the chicken. It was great. This is a simple recipe to adjust according to your taste buds, so keep that in mind when mixing the dijon mustard and ranch dressing. There's no way it shouldn't turn out if you taste as you go. I also got ahead of myself and mixed in the wine with the mustard/dressing mixture, but it didn't matter as it still turned out great. Will make again for days when "just" chicken sounds boring!

This is a good recipe. I made it as is - more eyeballing the sauce ingredients bc I was using 6 cx breasts and wanted enough sauce. Definitely needed sugar to cut the sour/tangy taste! I thru some in and would taste as I went along to get the right amt, around 2 tablespoons. 4 of six of us really enjoyed it. The others are extra picky, and don't like mustard in general.

The success of this recipe depends on which ranch dressing you use. Many ranch dressing have way too much "bite" for this recipe. I'll try this again with a much milder ranch. First attempt was just ok but not great. I'll try one more time.

My husband and I tried this recipe and we loved it. I used home made butter milk ranch so it was to or liking, I agree with sweetening the sauce, rather than sugar I had honey, I also used bl/SL chicken thighs, they are more moist than breasts and you can get a huge batch individually packaged at Costco for $15. We will be making this again

When I read the reviews, I was hopeful for this recipe to be a hit at my house. Neither my husband, my 19 year old, my 13 year old, or myself cared for this. Definitely not a repeat recipe at my house!
