My Most Versatile Chicken Recipe

Here's an easy chicken recipe, easily adaptable to create many different flavors. Each combination is simple and delicious.

Preheat oven to 350.
A: Ranch dressing (you can use the already-mixed kind or mix: 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of mayo, and 1 Hidden Valley Ranch packet to make your own). You will only want to use about 1/2 cup or less for the recipe, so set the rest aside.

A: 1/2 cup mayo, 1/2 cup milk. Mix with whisk.

A: if all else fails, and you don't have enough for either of the others, choose one: mayo, water, or milk.
B: Crushed potato chips

B: Mix: 1/4 cup of Italian bread crumbs, 1/8 cup parmesan cheese

B: Mix: 1/4 cup parmesan cheese with 1 packet of Italian dressing seasoning mix

B: Crushed corn flakes

Directions: Choose one A grouping and one B grouping. Take boneless chicken breasts, thighs, cutlets, or fingers, and pat dry. Cover and coat with the A mixture. Immediately roll in the B grouping and put in metal or glass baking dish. Bake in 350 degree oven 20-35 minutes, depending on the size of your oven, and eat. Serve with rice, pasta or freshly-cooked vegetables.

You can use plain yogurt (or even a lime or lemon flavored yogurt) as an A option as well. There's a little less fat that way.
