I made Ranch Chicken last night. And really, how could it go wrong? It involved ranch, and chicken, win WIN!
Well, apparently it could go wrong. It could go very very wrong. I'll spare you pictures of the catastrophe. They wouldn't be pretty. Let's just say, you really DO want to follow the directions and use that dusty bread crumb stuff in a can, you know, those Italian ones. I never keep that stuff in my house because I think it's flavorless and... dusty. But I guess there really is a purpose for it, and this recipe probably would be one of those purposes.
I tried to make homemade bread crumbs with a couple slices of bread and my food processor. Not a good idea. Don't try it. It was too moist and wouldn't coat the chicken properly. So I just sort of smushed some on top and threw it in the oven. Because the chicken wasn't covered it turned out very dry, and didn't gain any flavor from the ranch which was mixed in with the bread crumbs.
So lesson learned I guess. Me and the girls ate hot dogs instead and later on I ran out to Wendy's for me and Hubs. So I didn't succeed in steering us away from take out for once this week.
