    I made these last night with a slight variation and they were delish!! Instead of frying the chicken, I lightly coated the chicken with spray oil (I use my own olive oil in a sprayer bottle) and then baked the chicken on non-stick foil. It tasted fried and my kids loved the ranch taste.

    Thanks!!

    I made this with home made Ranch and panko bread crumbs and used it from straight the freezer. But…I baked it at 400F (convection oven)for 20 minutes on an oiled cookie sheet, turned it, then baked for another 20 minutes. It turned out fabulous. Served it with broccoli.Husband asked how much we had of it in the freezer because he could eat it once a week!

    this is a good idea…but its hard to find ranch dressing without MSG..which makes me really sick. But i’ll try it when I find a good dressing.
    Thanks.

    Due to my new work schedule we’re in a habit of me making meals the night before and DH microwaving the next time for him and the kids. If I baked this the night before, do you think it could be easily reheated and still taste good?

    He and the kids get home at 6, so they don’t really have an hour to wait for it to bake and DH is not confident enough in the kitchen to even attempt pan frying. I’m lucky to get him to make pasta right now, lol.
