Ranch seasoning isn’t only for salads. Chicken and ranch pair so well, have you given this Baked ranch chicken legs and vegetables a try yet? I absolutely love this recipe for its simple flavor and ease of making.

How to make Creamy Ranch Chicken

  • Start with cutting the chicken breast into cutlets. Cut the chicken into 2 pieces by running through the knife horizontally. Pound any thick part of the chicken to even thickness. This step ensures the chicken is cooked evenly and also remains juicy.
  • Season chicken on both sides well.
  • Use a cast-iron skillet for a perfect sear. Heat oil and butter, sear seasoned chicken on both the sides until golden brown in color. Keep it covered.
  • In the same pan saute garlic until aromatic. Add flour and cook for 30 seconds
  • Add chicken stock to make a smooth sauce. Then add sour cream and ranch seasoning. The sauce will look glossy and thick.
  • Add back the cooked chicken. Spoon over some of the sauce. Sprinkle chopped parsley.

Variations of Ranch Chicken

What I love about this recipe is, it is really versatile. Crispy bacon a delicious twist to it. You can also add some sauteed mushrooms. Spinach in case you want to add some fiber to it.

What to serve

You can make a complete meal out of it. Serve it with some creamy mashed potatoes or roasted potatoes and some green peas, roasted broccoli, green beans. Serve it with some pasta as there is enough gravy to pour over.

    Dear Shuba,
    Thank you very much for your reply. Like I said previously, I don’t live in the USA but the UK. That is why I was requesting help with the Ranch ingredients.
    Yours sincerely,
    Zulema Riggs

      Ranch dressing is a popular dressing/seasoning available is the US. Hidden valley is a popular brand and thats what I have used. If you cant get hold of it, there are a lot of homemade ranch dressing available on the internet.

  3. Can I use heavy cream instead of sour cream?

    1. Subhasmita says:

      Sour cream gives a different flavour. But you have heavy cream, you can use that as well.

  4. Where can I find or make ranch seasoning?

    1. Subhasmita says:

      I used the Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning mix. You should be able to find it in supermarkets nearby.
