Mississippi Chicken

This Mississippi Chicken is quick, easy, and delicious!  It is packed with bold ranch flavor and the tangy flavor of banana peppers combined perfectly to cover the tender chicken.  This can go from the fridge to the oven in as little as 10 minutes for a simple week night meal.

Recipe Notes
  1. I use either Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning or homemade ranch seasoning.  If you are gluten free make sure to use homemade ranch seasoning.
  2. If your chicken breasts are thick, you may want to slice them in half lengthwise so that they are half as thick.  This will help them cook more quickly and evenly.
  3. You can also use chicken tenderloins, chicken thighs or other cuts, however the cook time may change.
  4. Nutrition facts provided based on my best estimation for the recipe and may not be accurate depending on what brands you use or modifications you make to the recipe.  I recommend using a nutrition calculator with the exact brands and measurements you use for the most accurate calculation.
