  • 3 Dip the chicken into the ranch dressing to coat both sides (allow any excess to drip off).
  • 4 Coat in the breadcrumb mixture.
  • 5 Place in a single layer onto a greased baking sheet or line with non-stick foil (do NOT bake in a smaller baking dish or the bottom of the chicken will be soggy).
