There are plenty versions of this recipe, this is mine and can be on your table in less that an hour, my family loves this chicken! --- the ranch dressing is the secret it holds in all the flavor and moistness while the chicken is baking and also adds flavor, I find that Hidden Valley Ranch dressing works the best but Kraft or any other brand will do, I sometimes top the baked chicken with mozzarella cheese or cheddar, but that is optional --- although I have only made this using breasts I imagine that chicken pieces could be used although you would have to increase the breadcrumb mixture slightly, you can marinate the chicken breast in the ranch dressing for a few hours in the fridge, although you will need more than 1 cup of dressing if you are marinating .... *NOTE* to avoid a soggy bottom crust, place the chicken breasts onto a flat rack on top the baking sheet, also it is important not to bake the chicken in a small baking pan, if you do not have a rack bake on a large baking sheet so any juices in the pan will spread out and not accumulate under the chicken causing a soggy bottom --------------- FOR LOW-FAT OPTION: use low-fat Ranch dressing and omit the melted butter on top or use a healthy butter alternative such as Smart Balance 50/50 blend.
