Howdy, y'all! I've been a little MIA this week or two. Something about a major exam really eats up your time!
Got an easy recipe for you...Ranch Chicken Strips! It's only 3 ingredients!
Well, 5 if you count the marinating.
I've been craving chicken strips like crazy for a while. You know, the "gas station" kind. Oh, the good ol' crunchy, deep-fried kind. Don't judge, you know you've been there too. I totally almost "caved" to the fried chicken on a couple of occasions. I may or may not have given in to fried potato wedges.
Place 1 cup milk, 1 Tbs white vinegar, and 1 1/2 lbs Chicken Breasts (cut into strips) in a sealable bag in the refrigerator. Marinate overnight.
Combine 1 pkg dry Ranch seasoning mix, 1/3 parmesan, & about 2 cups panko bread crumbs in a shallow dish. (Not going to lie, I totally "eyeballed" this.)
Step 3: Remove chicken from milk marinade. Let Drip dry a bit. Roll chicken in seasoning/crumbs.
Step 4: Spray chicken with non-stick spray (helps it crisp) and bake for about 20-25 minutes on 360.
Serve with your chosen dip-mine was Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce!
Quick, tasty, AND easy!
Hubby was worried this wouldn't be crispy enough. But, alas, the panko makes it pretty crispy for being baked "fried" chicken. This one has his "seal of approval" and the nod to make again.
