    I use broken potato chips versus the corn flakes. The chicken is so moist. My son and friends love it, we call it potato chip chicken. Thanks!

    I’ve been making this for years… got it out of my SIL’s ward cookbook. I rarely use the butter and instead I soak the chicken pieces in buttermilk or plain yogurt for an hour or two before preparing the recipe – then I just pull out the pieces and dredge it in the cereal/ranch/cheese mixture…. it’s a great recipe. Oh and one other tip – I usually cook it on a cookie sheet – I can get more chicken on it – and I line the sheet with aluminum foil so clean-up is a breeze!

    Tried this tonight and it was excellent! Everyone gobbled it up, including my 2 younger daughters. Definitely a dish that will be on my meal planning rotation. Thanks for a great recipe.

      You can use the kind on the plastic tube container or it also can be found in the cheese section of the store. It is bagged and already shredded. That’s the kind of parmesan cheese we use, already shredded. You will love this recipe! So easy and the chicken is moist!

        Sorry… but I am a bit confused on what type of Parmesan cheese.

        Did you use the one in the “plastic container” OR the bag of “shredded” cheese?

        You mentioned in ingredients “grated” but in the comment above, you said “shredded” — could you clarify/correct what you used on the recipe.

        Thx… love your page/site! :)

          Hi Sandy,
          So sorry to confuse you. I use the bagged shredded cheese. Some packages say grated and some say shredded. I have used the Parmesan cheese in the plastic container that is also kind of shredded. But I like bagged the best. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you have anymore questions. :)

    Can this be made with different cheese? I don’t have any Parmesan, but I have shredded Mexican blend cheese.

      It will give it a totally different taste and texture to the outside coating. We have only used parmesan, so not sure how it would turn out.

    I am in Australia and we don’t have a Ranch dressing mix. We have ranch dressing in a bottle which is a liquid. Is the mix a dry ingredient or a liquid.

    Have googled and found that it is a dry mix, also found a couple of recipes to make it.

    I have bought the liquid and think will soak chicken in that and then do the rest and add what seasonings I have that are in the mix.

      It is a 1 ounce envelope packet. Hidden Valley makes it as well as store brands. They all work great!
