I know this is a lame photo, but in my defense my husband ate my post! Or more specifically, he ate the dish I set aside with the chicken for my photo. So, it wasn’t entirely his fault – I know better than trying to take a photo of dinner.
So this piece of chicken was what was left of the entire meal I cooked – which is a good thing. This is one of those meals that the kids really like – and I love that it only has three ingredients! Whoopie!
Ranch Chicken Strips Adapted from Chicken Soup for the Soul Recipes for Busy Moms
3/4 of a large bag of potato chips (I use Ruffles)*, crushed
1 cup of ranch dressing (my kids prefer Marzetti’s)
5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (trimmed and sliced into inch strips)
Pour the crushed chips into a large (shallow) bowl, and the ranch dressing into another bowl.
Simply dip each chicken strip into the ranch dressing, then coat it in the potato chips and place in an ungreased (glass) 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
Place in the oven (uncovered) at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes. They should be nicely browned and the juices should be clear.
Serve with a salad, mashed potatoes, fresh rolls, and fruit! Yum!
*I’ve tried this recipe with baked potato chips and it doesn’t turn out well.
