I added powdered Ranch dressing mix to this along with the bottled ranch to give it more flavor. My family loved it and it was very easy to make!
Very easy! Very yummy. My 3 little girls loved it as well. I was really pressed for time, so I used pre cooked/cut/grilled chicken breast. Yum!!!
Basic, but far from boring. Chicken is just a jumping off point for these family-friendly recipes. Enjoy an elegant roasted chicken or find an easy weeknight winner!
