Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix
unseasoned dry bread crumbs or corn flakes
medium roasting chicken, about 3 pounds, cut into serving pieces
I followed the recipe exactly, except I began the temp at 450 deg. for 15 minutes, then lowered. because some pieces were large. Recipe did not say to remove skin, but I did. Chicken was moist and really easy to prepare. A keeper.
Blander than you would expect; and I even used way more ranch than the recipe called for. They aren't bad, they aren't great, they are just something to eat. I would make sure you season the chicken with some salt and pepper before breading. Maybe adding some Parmesan cheese to the breading would help.
Adds a different spin to baked chicken
I used cornflakes for this recipe, the problem i had was the crumbs would not stick to the chicken, just the ranch seasoning while the crumbs fell right off, so i rubbed some sour cream on to the chicken and all though it was very messy, the sour cream helped the crumbs stick better, this is a good recipe, but for me, i will need to find a better way to make the crumbs stick, i think the sour cream i tried also makes it very juicy and moist, so next time i make this i may add some sour cream again to help hold the crumbs
My son who won't eat anything had seconds. I love the fact that it's crispy without being fried. I used chicken breast and cut it into chicken tenders. The chicken was damp and as I pulled it out of the bag I smashed the corn flakes into each piece to make them stick. It worked.
If you do not have breadcrumbs, you can use crushed Ritz crackers, crushed croutons or crushed cornflakes. When I make this, I like to use a homemade dry ranch seasoning mix as it helps to keep the sodium low. My kids especially love this, especially when I use chicken tenders and make homemade chicken nuggets!
I used corn flakes instead of the bread crumbs. Very good!
I too used cornflake crumbs in place of the breadcrumbs. The coating was so good and crunchy without frying. I used chicken thighs and placed them on a cooling rack on top of a cookie sheet in the oven so the bottom wouldnt be soggy. I will definatly make chicken this way again.
