OK, this one isn’t really make ahead, but it is super easy. Here we go:
1 Packet Dry Ranch Mix
1 Box Jiffy Cornbread Mix
1 LB Chicken Breasts, whole or cut however you want
Preheat oven to 400. Mix ranch and cornbread mix together in a large ziploc bag or tupperware container. Put in chicken, one breast at a time, close bag or container and shake. Remove chicken and put on baking sheet. Repeat until all chicken is coated. Put in oven and bake 10-15 minutes, until no pink in center of chicken when cut.
This isn’t a make-ahead because the coating will be crisp when you first take it out of the oven, but will turn soggy if you store it in the refrigerator. I never seem to use up all the coating mix, so I put the container in the freezer and use it again. NOTE: Do not use if you do not store in the freezer. Bacteria or something else will grow and turn your chicken into yuckness.
You can use this chicken on salads, as a main entree, as more flavorful home made chicken nuggets. They are quite tasty, the seasonings don’t overpower, and it bakes up crisp without all the extra fat associated with frying.
