Ranch Chicken

Last nights dinner was super simple and easy.  I must say I love meals like that.  As much as I like to make complex recipes there is something so satisfying about making a quick delicious dish.  It’s been a bad couple weeks eating wise.  So, I’m back to fully measuring out my food and keeping track of what I’m eating.  Just because a dish is healthy doesn’t mean it can’t be tasty.  That’s my goal with healthy eating…to make it taste delicious.  So, here’s a rather healthy take on chicken.  It’s so quick to put together and you may have these ingredients in your kitchen right now.  The recipe is perfect for a week night and is sure to please!

Baked Ranch Chicken Thighs

10 small chicken thighs, skinless and boneless
1/4 Cup and 2T Lite Ranch Salad Dressing
1/2 T water
3/4 Cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
2 t Italian seasoning
2 t garlic powder
2 t onion powder
1/2 packet of ranch seasoning
Sprinkle: Salt and Pepper

Directions: Preheat oven to 375°.  In a bowl mix breadcrumbs, spices and ranch seasoning.  In a second bowl add the 6T of lite ranch dressing and 1/2 T of water and stir.  Take chicken and lightly coat with the ranch.  Rub around on the chicken to give it an even coating. This amount of ranch should lightly coat all these chicken thighs, so make sure not to put to much on each piece.  Then dip in the breadcrumbs and add to a greased baking sheet.  Continue with the rest of the chicken thighs.  Bake for 30-35 minutes depending on the thickness of the chicken.  Serve with your favorite sides.

Note: This is great for left overs and is very tasty and so simple to make.  I used smaller chicken thighs but you can use bigger ones as well.  That will change the cook time and your ingredients for the breading may fluctuate.  This is very lightly breaded as you can tell from the picture. I tried to keep as healthy as possible.  If you aren’t watching your figure feel free to go nuts with the dressing and breadcrumbs! Enjoy!
