3 Ingredient BBQ-Ranch Chicken in No Time

This quick, delicious chicken dinner uses only 3 ingredients that you'll find in most kitchens and is perfect for a busy weeknight dinner.

There are many nights that I enjoy getting in the kitchen and preparing an elaborate meal for my family. Other nights, I just need to get something on the table to feed us all as we are going a million miles an hour. On those crazy nights, I turn to one pan or sheet pan meals for easy prep and easy clean.

This meal came from one of those nights. And it was the night before we were going grocery shopping, so food was a bit sparse in the kitchen. I had some chicken thawed but had no clue what I was going to do with it. I started searching around the kitchen and found some bbq sauce and ranch and started to experiment.

Step by Step

Preheat the oven to 375F. In a small mixing bowl, I combined bbq sauce and ranch dressing at about a 3:1 mixture.

Pat the chicken breast dry and place it on a baking sheet. I like to line the sheet with either parchment paper or aluminum foil to make it easy to clean up. Use a pastry brush to coat the chicken with the bbq-ranch sauce. Apply it liberally, then flip the chicken over and cover the other side as well.

Bake the chicken for about 25-45 minutes, depending on how thick the chicken breasts are. We like to fillet our chicken, so they are half the thickness and cook much quicker. Since we were almost out of food, I didn’t have much to go with this, but next time I plan to make some roasted vegetables or potatoes with this, also coated in a little bit of the sauce. I had corn muffin mix, and the boys were so excited to get muffins for dinner!

  1. We eat chicken often around our house. This is perfect for those really busy days or even when I don’t really feel like cooking but everyone is starving.

  2. Now this sounds like an amazing combo! I love all the ingredients but never thought together! Gonna add this to menu dinner this coming week.

  3. This look so good and filling! I’m vegan so I’ll give it a go with seitan I made the other day, fingers crossed it will work out well in the end!

  4. Just 3 ingredients? Man, it doesn’t get any easier than that. I have two 20-something sons always looking for easy recipes. I sent it to both of them.

  6. What a brilliant idea of mixing both the sauces together and just the idea is making my mouth water. My husband loves chicken and I think it will be a great treat for him.
