  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into cutlets
  • 3/4 cup ranch dressing
  • 3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs or plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese finely shredded
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.
  • Place cutlets in a large bowl then pour ranch dressing over the chicken and mix until evenly coated. Marinate for up to overnight or bread immediately.
  • To make the breading, add breadcrumbs, cheddar and Parmesan cheese into a shallow bowl then stir until well combined.
  • Remove chicken from dressing and allow the excess to drip off but leave any that clings to the chicken. Completely coat each breast in the breading mixture.
  • Arrange the chicken on the baking sheet, spritz top of chicken with cooking spray and bake 15-20 minutes or until the breading is crisp and chicken is cooked through. Remove from oven and allow it to rest 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!


Place chicken on a parchment-lined baking sheet for easy cleanup and you’re good to go.
