Marinated Ranch Broiled Chicken

Marinated Ranch Broiled Chicken


"A great dinner for two! Chicken breasts marinated in oil, vinegar and Ranch-style dressing, then broiled to a beguiling finish. This is a wonderful chicken recipe that can be prepared in the morning and cooked when you get home at night. The longer you let it marinate, the better it tastes!"

If you are looking for a great quick way to season ANY meat this marinade will work. We have done: chicken, pork chops, burgers, and steaks so far. It really is a tasty quick way to liven up dinner. Oh yeah, you can use any type of vinegar you have tooo. I have used white, apple cider, red wine and balsamic vinegar individually and it's still awesome. So if you don't like a certain kind of vinegar you can easily use a different kind!!!!


I thought this might be one of those highly-rated recipes that turns out to be a dud but I was so pleasantly surprised. This is the most delicious chicken and I had every member of this family raving about it. We grilled the chicken breasts after pounding them, only marinated about two hours. Tender, cooked perfectly. I will only make chicken this way from now on. Went great with a bottle of cab because of the grilling and ranch flavors. Wow! I am going to go to bed dreaming about this one tonight. Definately one of the top recipes I have ever made from this site. And did I mention how easy it came together?


Suzy, Suzy, Suzy, Wow! what a great recipe! I used the Lipton Ranch soup and dip mix packet with the rest of the ingredients just as written. Started with frozen, boneless, skinless, chicken breasts. Poured the marinade over the breast while they were thawing in a covered corning ware dish. I pre boiled enough potatoes for hubby and myself. Preheated oven to 400 degrees F. Took the chicken out of the marinade and placed them on a cookie sheet and popped them into the oven. I then put the potatoes in the marinade to coat them well. When it was time to turn the chicken over I put the potatoes on the cookie sheet with the chicken. Turned the potatoes once to brown on the other side. The chicken and potatoes were excellent!! So quick and easy, I can't wait to try this on different meats. Thank you so much. This will be a regular at our house.
