My sister Christina used to make this all the time growing up. It was one of our favorites! I don't think I'd made it since college and then one day whilst planning my menu I remembered it and that it was pretty easy and that the kids would like it. And they did! True story...the end.
Cheesy Ranch Chicken
6 chicken breasts (cut into large strips)
1 cup ranch dressing
2 T. flour
1/2 cup shredded parmesan
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Cut up chicken into strips (this helps it cook faster and gets more cheesy goodness on each piece of chicken!). In a medium bowl combine ranch and flour. Dredge each piece of chicken in ranch mixture and place in a 9x13 baking dish. Cover with cheeses. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 min. or until chicken is cooked through.
For a crispier topping I like to broil on high for 5 minutes at the end. Give it a try!
Freezer Meal Method:
Cut chicken into strips (or at least in half). In a small bowl combine ranch and flour. Dredge each piece of chicken in ranch mixture and place in 9x13 freezer pan. Spread any extra sauce over the top of the chicken. Top with both cheeses. Cover with two pieces of aluminum foil and label. Freeze flat.
Keep frozen until ready to use. Tent foil over pan. Cook at 350 degrees for 45 min. Remove foil, gently separate chicken strips so that they cook more evenly and continue cooking for another 50-60 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. (Use a thermometer for best indication-larger pieces may take more time) Turn oven to broil and broil on high for 5 minutes to help the cheese crisp up on top.
