Ingredients (3)

For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.

Steps (2)

Simply reduce the cooking time and temperature on your air fryer as shown here.*

Set air fryer timer for half the cooking time of a conventional oven. Add extra time for doneness if needed.

Reduce regular oven temperature by 25° to 50° (not going below 350°) on your air fryer. If food is getting too dark, reduce by another 25°.

* Always follow manufacturer’s instructions.

  1. 1
    Preheat the oven to 425°F. Place chicken breasts into a Glad® gallon bag and pound until they are ¾ of an inch thick (optional). Place the chicken breasts in a baking dish to fit. Brush with the melted butter or olive oil on both sides. Sprinkle or shake the ranch seasoning mix over the chicken on both sides. If there is any remaining butter or oil, drizzle over the seasoned chicken.
  2. 2
    Place in the oven and bake for 18–20 minutes, until cooked through and no longer pink in the center. Remove from the oven and let rest for a few minutes. Serve hot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty Ranch Chicken This baked ranch chicken is delicious. It is tender and well seasoned. It is great with mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, or even cut up in a salad. It was easy to make and a great recipe to make in a short amount of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winner, winner chicken ranch dinner! I made this last night for my family. I made 6 pieces of chicken and they were gone in no time. While cooking them I turned them over half way though the cooking time and added more ranch. This will be in my dinner rotation for now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deliciously simple! I love baked chicken from restaurants, and always loved it. But every time I tried to make any type of baked chicken dish it always came out dry and lacking flavor. I was getting so frustrated. Then I realized every recipe I tried was complicated and required many ingredients...I didn't have much hope for this one either, but I love ranch so I wanted to give it a try. I am SO glad I did, and I will never make baked chicken any other way again! I love this recipe so much, even my picky husband liked it. The chicken comes out tender, juicy, and tastes like ranch (of course). It also pairs wonderfully with pasta sides, like pasta tonight. This is a new weekly favorite and I love that I always have leftovers for lunch the next day!
