Smoky Ranch Baked Chicken

Here’s how smoked paprika and ranch seasoning transforms baked chicken.

This dish is inspired by our latest food obsession, the no-recipe recipe. Unlike a traditional recipe, this dish doesn’t call for a list of fixed ingredients, so you can customize it to fit your tastes. Explore all of our no-recipe recipes here, and shake up some mealtime magic, your way.

For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.
  • To get started: Cut a 3-4 pound chicken into about 8 pieces (or buy separate chicken pieces). Rub olive oil all over the chicken pieces and season with Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Seasoning Shaker and some smoked paprika.
  • Arrange the chicken (without overcrowding) in roasting pan that has been coated with olive oil.
  • Bake in a 400-degree oven for about half an hour; then turn down the heat to 350 degrees and finish cooking for another 10-20 minutes until the juices run clear from the chicken. If you want crisper skin, baste with the drippings a couple of times throughout cooking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Timesaving! This was so easy and cooked in the oven, while I finished my other tasks. I baked on Foil and the cleanup was even easier. I tossed some potatoes in ranch and olive oil and put in the oven to bake along with the chicken--original sheet pan dinners! Side salad (with ranch, of course) and done!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy dish I fell in love with smoked paprika, years ago, so when I saw this recipe I knew I would love it and it was such a hit with my husband.
