Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and delicious! Great dinner for company it is fast and easy and they love it. My family thinks I must have been slaving over a hot stove most of the day. At my age (74) I need all the easy recipes I can find. Love your Ranch dressings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ranch Cheddar Chicken This was really good. I just started doing a lot more cooking with Ranch Dry Dressing mix as I was able to find the canister and is so much more convenient to use than the pkgs, I couldn't add the Parmesan cheese as my son does not like, but the Ranch dressing really added a great taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste Never would of thought of doing something like this. Made it for my family and they loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this We love baked chicken recipes, like this one! Marinating in the Ranch always makes sure they will be tender and juicy and then we switch out the other toppings too. But this cheddar one is a huge hit when the kids have friends over. Just love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good I doubled the recipe and made more of the coating, because I used bigger chicken breasts. My family definitely recommends this recipe! They loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moist chicken dish We love this dish but unless you use small chicken breast, plan on making about double of the breading and ranch. I actually cut the chicken in to strips so we get more breading on it. It comes out so moist.
