Ranch Chicken Thighs

I had no idea what I was going to make for dinner tonight.. I had a pack of chicken thighs in the fridge, but I'm so tired of marinating it and throwing it on the GF grill.. so I had to RecipeZaar it.. and Low in behold there it was in my cookbook...

Ranch Chicken thighs.. I last made them months ago, back when I didn't think I was melting from the inside out when I put the oven on for any extended period of time.. but I had to brave it tonight, I was desperate for something other than 'grilled and marinated' I wanted some flavorful and juicy chicken..

OH MY GOD they were so good and if my camera were cooperating with me I would have pictures, but the poor thing is just dang dead tonight, I really have to get a new camera soon.. I will try again later.. but I'm not sure if it's just the batteries that need charging or something more..

anyway, here's the recipe:

Ranch Chicken Thighs


  • 1/2 cup dry breadcrumb
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon italian seasoning
  • 6 chicken thighs (skin removed)
  • 1/2 cup bottled ranch salad dressing


  1. In a shallow bowl, combine crumbs, Parmesan cheese, cornmeal, and Italian seasoning.
  2. Dip chicken into salad dressing, then coat with crumb mixture.
  3. Place chicken in a greased 13x9 baking dish.
  4. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until juices run clear.
Not only are they moist, but the crust has such wonderful flavor.. it's unbelievable!
