Easy~ Spicy Ranch Chicken
This recipe is from Carolyn Blurton of Madison County. The Jackson Sun printed this recipe and it was also included in the Jacksons Womens Club collection of recipes.
It's easy. I used a whole chicken which I cut up and Mexican blend cheese. I bet you know I used my favorite- Slap Ya Mama to coat the chicken.
6 chicken breast halves (boneless and skinless) coated well in Cajun seasoning ( used a cut up whole chicken)
1 16 ounce bottle original ranch dressing
1 cup mild cheddar cheese( used Mexican blend cheese)
1 pkg. real bacon pieces ( fried up 6 slices of bacon)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Prepare a baking dish with cooking spray.
Coat the chicken with your choice of Cajun spice. I didn't measure how much spice I added to the bag to coat the chicken. I poured some in and when it was gone I added more to make sure all the chicken parts were covered.
Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes or until chicken reaches the internal temp of 180 degrees. I did not debone any parts of the chicken.
In a medium size bowl combine the ranch dressing, cheese and bacon bits.
Take the cooked chicken out of the oven and cover the chicken with the ranch mixture.
Put back in the oven until hot and bubbly.
Note: As mentioned I used Slap Ya Mama. It was VERY hot. Next time I'll just sprinkle it on the chicken. It was good and a make again recipe.
