    Ingredients for parmesan chicken breast

    Crusting: For the crusting on the chicken, you can use panko or bread crumbs. You can also use crushed ritz, tortilla chips or corn flakes for a twist.

    Parmesan cheese: I like the texture that grated parmesan cheese adds, however feel free to use shredded parmesan as well.

    Dry ranch dressing: Make sure to use a packet of the dry ranch dressing mix instead of the creamy dressing in a bottle.

    Butter: I use unsalted butter vs. salted butter in this recipe because the ranch dressing mix  already has salt in it.

    Chicken: I used 3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts. You could use chicken tenders as well, but you may need to adjust cooking time.
