What Ingredients Do I Need For This Recipe

Chicken | Boneless chicken is what you will need for this recipe. You could also use tenderloins, but they would be needed to be close together to hold the broccoli topping. Oil is used to help prevent the chicken from sticking to the pan.

Ranch Dressing Mix | This is the powdered ranch seasoning you will use for the chicken. This can’t be swapped with liquid ranch dressing.

Cheese | I used sharp cheddar cheese, but you could essentially swap this cheese out with any of your favorites such as pepper jack, Monterey jack or mozzarella.

Broccoli | You can reach for frozen broccoli, as it will bake up beautifully. Plus, a bag of frozen broccoli is very affordable.

Bacon | Bacon, and chicken are two proteins that work well together. This dish is like no other, and it will pair nicely with the ranch and broccoli.

How To Make Ranch Cheddar Chicken and Broccoli

You will start by preheating your oven and prepping your baking sheet. Place chicken on the pan, and then spread with Olive oil. Season with the dry ranch powder mixture.

Remove from oven, top with the remaining cheese, and bake for another 10 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked through.

How Do I Know Chicken Is Cooked?

According to FoodSafety.gov the internal temperature should be 165 degrees. The other thing to look for is to make sure the chicken is running clear liquid and not white, and there is no pink in the chicken when you slice into the chicken breast.

Can I Leave Off The Broccoli?

Yes, if you don’t want the broccoli on this chicken, leave it off. You can replace it with a different vegetable or do bacon and chicken with the ranch and cheese.

How to Properly Store Leftovers?

If you end up having chicken and broccoli leftover, place them in an airtight container and store them for two to three days in the refrigerator. Then reheat quickly in the microwave or cover with foil and reheat in the oven.

Can I Double This Recipe?

Go right ahead and make as much or as little chicken as you would like. Suppose you have a larger family feel free to double the recipe if you want. Just make sure not to crowd the pan, so all the chicken can evenly cook.
