Amita Nene's Yummy Expressions: Crunchy Baked Chicken Ranch Style…

Amita Nene's Yummy Expressions

Crunchy Baked Chicken Ranch Style… 
With the main festivities over, and few of Diwali holidays still to go, except for the time we visited the local science park, we pretty much spent these few days at home;  full of board games, painting and art, designing (anything across the broad spectrum of outfits to space crafts!), karaoke, gardening and a happening culinary expedition. 
The culinary session needed to be uncomplicated yet fascinating enough to hold the interest of the teen experimenters. The sessions that started last summer holidays with how to make tea and coffee and instant noodles in the microwave, we have come quite a way so far having dished out a variety of wonders in the kitchen ranging from ice creams, cola floats, fruit slushes to grill chicken sandwiches, egg muffins, olive n spinach pizza, cookies and brownies and wedges and a variety of other simple bakes and grills.
 One of the most rocking kitchen sessions yet has been the one just before the school resumed this month, when we dished out a super creative, easy and yet super yummy Baked Chicken Ranch Style.
So guys, here’s presenting you the Crunchy Baked Chicken Ranch style, which literally gets ready in minutes….

To get going you need,
2 Boneless Chicken breasts cut into large chunks
4 tbsp Ranch Salad Dressing
1 tbsp Mix Italian Seasoning powder
1 tsp garlic paste or garlic powder
100 gm Breakfast cornflakes; hand crushed

In a large mixing bowl, add the crushed cornflakes, the Italian seasoning and garlic powder and mix well. 
Pre-heat the oven at 200 degrees Celsius.  Grease a baking sheet with olive oil.
Take the ranch dressing in a deep serving plate. One by one, take the chicken chunks and dip into the ranch dressing to cover fully, roll into the cornflakes mixture to coat properly and place on the baking sheet.
Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes till the chicken is well done. Do a toothpick or fork test to check if the chicken is cooked.
Serve it with your favourite dip – a Salsa or a garlic mayo or a sour cream cheese dip.
This quick, ‘low on effort’ dish that tastes heavenly has been such a motivational high point in my kids’ culinary achievements so far. Their confidence levels in the kitchen went soaring when the results of this particular kitchen endeavour were sampled by the household and was found to be exceptionally delectable.
Actually this one here is such a versatile preparation that it can also spice up your dinner menu exponentially.  And it’s a great way to get through the “I am too bored to cook” day when you can serve this simple yet delightful and stylish dish alongside a quick soup and garlic bread.  Go ahead, relax for the day and yet appease your palates cowboy style!
And I will see you soon with more Yummy Expressions!
