Helpful Recipe Tips

  • Ranch seasonings vary, if you use hidden valley it is seasoned very well and won't need anything else including salt. If you go with the other I recommended you may need salt. I know you will with select savory's version.
  • To thicken sauce, when fresh out of the oven the sauce with be piping hot and thin like water. To fix that you can allow it to cool or a quick fix make a slurry with a starch or mix xanthan gum in butter or some sort of oil. 1/2 teaspoon for Xanthan Gum or 1 tablespoon of tapioca or arrowroot starch. Be sure to remove chicken before adding thickeners.
  • Bake covered first if using thick pieces of chicken breast. If not they won't be cooked through in just 30 minutes due to their thickness. Always check for doneness.
  • Nutrition info is a estimate based on all of the ingredients and using Hidden Valley seasoning. Numbers are estimates and not perfect considering sauce not used, cheesed bacon left in dish or plate and so on.
