Garlic Ranch Ritz Chicken

Baseball season is in full swing and I feel like I don’t ever have a day where I’m not running from place to place. It is part of being a mother and I know this. I’m okay with it for the most part because I love aiding my kids in growing and building their talents. Does that mean I don’t get tired? No! Does it mean that I don’t ever struggle with the time to prepare a wholesome and filling meal? No! I am human after all; Even though I like to pretend that I have super powers and can accomplish miraculous things on my own. How I combat these busy times is with easy go-to meals that the kids enjoy. On occasion it means it needs to be a drive thru night, but when I’m not completely desperate I like to create dishes like this easy Garlic Ranch Ritz Chicken, with help from Hidden Valley.

You see, Hidden Valley dressings aren’t just for salads! Hidden Valley doesn’t just create dressings either. I recently discovered  their dips and spreads and boy do they have some great flavor! The special blend of herbs and spices in Hidden Valley Ranch makes for a delicious twist on all of your favorite recipes. Many of you are likely somewhat familiar with Ritz Chicken. I like to change the recipe up for added flavor. For this Garlic Ranch Ritz Chicken I like to use Hidden Valley® Oven Roasted Garlic Parmesan Sandwich Spread & Dip. I am a big fan of garlic and having the flavor come out in my chicken, underneath a bed of cheese and a crispy outer shell – YUM!

Just grab 4 ingredients, three bowls, a casserole dish and some nonstick spray, and you are set for a delicious dinner! This Ritz Chicken can be served with just about any side but I recommend rice or a baked potato.
