This "Parmesan Ranch Chicken" is a yummy oven fried chicken! The crust is made from cornflakes and it's nice and crunchy on the outside and so moist on the inside! It's a good alternative to fried chicken and it's super easy! This is one of my families favorites! Here is what you need:
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (could also use thighs)
1/2 cup butter (1 stick) divided and melted
2 cups crush corn flake crumbs
1 pkg. dry ranch dressing mix
1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Melt 1/2 of the butter in a shallow dish, like a pie plate. Place the crushed cornflakes in a gallon size zip lock bag. You can crush the cornflakes right in the bag by closing it and rolling a rolling pin over it or you can do them in the food processor. Just don't over crush them. Leave a little texture to them. Add the dry ranch dressing mix, seasoned salt, black pepper and the Parmesan cheese. Close the bag and shake to mix all of the ingredients.
Dip each chicken breast in the butter then place two at a time in the bag with the crumbs. Seal it and shake to coat on all sides. Place on a baking sheet covered with nonstick foil and sprayed with nonstick spray. After they are all coated. Put the extra crumbs on top of each piece. Melt the other 1/2 of the butter and drizzle it over each piece of chicken.
Place in the preheated 375 degree oven for 40-45 minutes. They should be nice and browned!
I served this with Three Cheese Mac & Cheese with Bacon , Sweet and Sour Green Beans , and tossed salad! It was so good! Hope you enjoy it!
