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 The Easiest Baked Chicken I've had in a LONG Time I made this for breakfast this morning because I was bored with the standard breakfast fair. It was so awesome that both my roommate and I want it again for dinner, just wish I had remembered to snap a pic of it.

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Picky Husband Loved It ! I bought a pack of the Hidden Valley dry ranch dip on a whim. I've always liked ranch dressing. I finally tried this recipe without telling my finicky husband. He loved it! It's so easy to make, too. I plan on making it often!
