Ranch ChickenEstimated Cost: $8.00

Prep Time:  5 minutes

Cooking Time:  15 minutes

Serves:  4

One of my all time favorite “outta time what do I make for dinner?” recipes.  Pick an easy side or two and you’ll have a delicious meal plated and on the table in 30 minutes.

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup ranch dressing
2/3 cup dry bread crumbs (any flavor)
2 Tbs. vegetable oil

1. Dip chicken into dressing, then coat with bread crumbs.

2. In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in oil 12 to 15 minutes, turning once, until outside is golden brown and juice is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut.

Mike’s comments:

I’ve found that combining 1/3 cup of dried bread crumbs with 1/3 cup of Panko bread crumbs makes for the most yummy of crunchy and tasty breadings.
