Barbecue Ranch Cheddar Baked Chicken is the perfect weeknight meal to satisfy your hungry family. It’s easy, delicious, and is ready in less than 30 minutes!
When it comes to feeding my family, chicken recipes are my go-to. Chicken is pretty easy to work with and there are so many different ways to prepare it. This particular recipe is a take on my Ranch Parmesan Baked Chicken, and uses the same method.
Now to make the chicken, start by pounding out the chicken breasts. This is so important because you want them to be even thickness so they will stay juicy and not dry out. Season them with garlic salt and chili powder, then brush on the Hidden Valley Ranch Honey BBQ Dressing. Finally crush us some cheese crackers (like Cheese-Its or Cheese Nips) and combine them with some shredded Cheddar cheese. Press that mixture into the chicken. The crackers and cheese will form a delicious crust on the chicken, and the dressing helps to keep the chicken super juicy and tender.
I like to top the chicken with some parsley for color, but it’s a completely optional step. See how golden brown it gets? So yummy!
Serve it with some of the Ranch Honey BBQ dressing on the side for dipping.
