Stovetop Ranch Pulled Chicken

Here’s how to sprinkle a little pizzazz onto your favorite pulled chicken dish.

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: Season boneless skinless chicken thighs with Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Seasoning Shaker. Place a large skillet with olive oil on the stove over high heat and warm up the oil. Add the chicken and sear it on both sides for a few minutes so that each side is golden brown.
  • Add a cup or so of chicken broth to the skillet (throw a little white wine in there too if you have an open bottle) and cover the skillet with a tight-fitting lid. Reduce the heat to medium and let the chicken cook for 25-30 minutes.
  • After about 20 minutes, flip the chicken over to the other side and continue to cook for another 10 minutes. Turn the heat off and using 2 forks, shred the chicken. You can use this in many different ways -- pile into tortillas or between bread, serve over rice, pasta or salad, eat plain or stir into to soup or stew.
