Breaded & Baked Chicken

This chicken always turns out so moist and flavorful. You can make it with any cut of chicken. I found leg quarters on sale, so that's what I used, but I've used thighs and a whole cut-up chicken in the past. It is best to use bone-in pieces, though.

1 package chicken
2 cups bread crumbs
1 package dry ranch mix
salt & pepper to taste
2 cups milk
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350.

In a large soup bowl, beat the egg and add the milk to it. This is your milk bath.

Take another large soup bowl and add the bread crumbs, ranch mix, and s & p. Mix well.

Dip one piece of chicken into your milk bath and then transfer it to the bread crumb mixture. Make sure to coat both sides of the chicken well. I actually dip in the milk bath, then the bread crumbs, then BACK into the milk bath and one last time into the bread crumbs. This gives it a nice crunchy coating.

Place each piece of chicken into a large baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for about 75 minutes, or until chicken is well done.


  1. mmm...I make this all the time and its sooo yummy. In case I haven't ever told you. I just LOVE all your recipes and your blog. You're so awesome :)

  2. I'm trying this recipe tonight but I'm using whole grain bread crumbs to make it a bit healthier.

    I tried your other chicken recipe last week and we loved it!
