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.

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.
