Cheesy Ranch Chicken

Just a few simple ingredients for this flavorful chicken.

Cheesy Ranch Chicken

I know what you’re thinking…how much chicken do these people eat? Seriously? How much cheese can one family consume?

Here’s your answer:  alot. Yep, alot.

We love it!

Chicken. Cheese. And this one has a bit of ranch. #Yum

Here is what you need for this recipe and a few notes:

  • Boneless chicken breast: approx 1 1/4 lbs or 3-4 medium size breasts. Your average cooking time will be about 30 minutes, but, that could vary, depending on the size/thickness of your chicken breasts.
  • Ranch dressing: go with your favorite bottled version or homemade will work too!
  • Grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Shredded cheddar cheese.
  • A large, flat rimmed baking sheet
  • Foil and non stick cooking spray
  • It’s not required, but, adding your chicken under a preheated broiler gives the cheese a crispy texture. It only will take a few, watch it carefully.

This Cheesy Ranch Chicken takes nearly zero effort in the prep department. You could toss it together after a long day and  have dinner on the table in 30 minutes.

The tangy ranch, the crunchy cheesy too will be a chicken and cheese family in no time flat.

Yield: 4 chicken breasts

I made this recipe in a slow cooker - 4 hr on low. Very good. BTW, my wife does not like parmesan, I am going to try sharp cheddar and mozzarella. Comments?

Hi Jeff- That's a great idea! I've never made this chicken in the crock pot, but, I will definitely be giving it a try. I like the mozzarella cheese idea or maybe a Monterrey Jack? I think they both would go great with the cheddar.

I doubt I'll bother trying this or any other recipe from you. Your incessant nagging pop-ups during the short time I tried to look at this recipe have pissed me off. I don't give a damn about you printing this as a comment. I said what I came to say.
