Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this with chicken I usually make it with beef, but the beauty of using the Ranch seasoning packet is that it goes with everything..and it pairs with chicken nicely in this recipe but my family does not like pickled pepporcinis so we omit that

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but not Excellent! I am a big chicken fan (chicken salad especially). The chicken tastes good, but I prefer to sear it.
