jalapeno ranch chicken

For whatever reason, this week I've been craving meat. I think it has something to do with my workouts, and being sick.

This dish is a go to for me, when I feel like having meat because it's so easy and it's really good left over. Also, there are so many ways to serve it... quesadillas, salads, sandwiches, etc.

I made this on Monday to put on a spinach salad, and I've been eating the leftovers on a wheat kaiser roll with avocado slices for lunch. It's SO good. Like, I go to bed at nite thinking about how I can't wait to eat my lunch the next day, good.



ingredients:
2 chicken breasts, cut into strips
1 package dry ranch seasoning
4 roma tomatoes, sliced thinly
1 large (or 2 small) jalapenos, seeded and sliced into strips
1/2 cup shredded cheese (I use a monterrey jack & cheddar blend)

directions:
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Place chicken in a baking dish sprinkle lightly with salt, and generously with the dry ranch seasoning (you won't use the whole package). Turn over each piece and repeat. Layer the tomatoes, then the jalapenos and sprinkle with cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Allow to cool and then chop.

  1. yum!! I secretly love that ranch seasoning...my secret bad snack is making dip and eating it with Lay's chips...soooo bad.

    Anyway, this looks awesome! I love jalapenos, I love ranch, it's a winner.

  3. Yum! This looks soo good! I might have to try this tonight... My husband isn't a huge fan of spicy foods, but I could take some of the seeds off the peppers and still get the flavor.

    1. It's really not spicy at all! I take the seeds out too b/c my little one doesn't like spicy foods either.

    1. I buy the kroger brand, because it's cheapest. I used hidden valley for a long time, and I can't tell a difference.
