Favorite Chicken Breasts


chicken breast - favorite

This is a very easy gluten-free dinner, and my kids rave about the chicken. I usually have a bag of frozen chicken breasts in my freezer. They are nice to use when I need a simple meal.

Favorite Chicken Breasts

Put a little Italian salad dressing and a little olive oil in the bottom of a rectangular baking dish. Place the frozen chicken breasts in the dish and add a little of the salad dressing and olive oil on top. Sprinkle the chicken pieces liberally with powdered ranch dressing mix. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 - 1 hour or until done.  If using chicken that is not frozen, your baking time will be much less.

Note:  You can buy powdered Ranch dressing mix in packets. I have a container I get at BJ’s Wholesale which is more economical.  Remember to check the ingredients of your salad dressings to make sure they are gluten-free.

I let the chicken sit for 5 minutes or so, then I cut the breasts in thin strips with my electric knife. The kids, as big as they are, really like having the meat sliced for them. As I said, they just love this chicken. It is moist and flavorful.

For the rest of the dinner, I served steamed asparagus with a little butter and salt, and quinoa cooked in chicken broth with a little garlic and onion.  What special, yummy, or easy dinner did you have this week?

I may be making this for dinner tonight.
 
Is your big container Hidden Valley Ranch?
 
Lisa ~ I don't remember. I don't use it any more because it contains dairy. I just use Italian dressing (usually a home made version) now.
