Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Spread bread crumbs into a wide, shallow bowl. Press chicken breast halves into bread crumbs to coat. Gently pat chicken to let any loose crumbs fall away. Place coated breasts onto a plate while breading the rest; do not stack.

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in hot oil to brown completely, 3 to 5 minutes per side.

  • Spread rice into the bottom of a 13x9-inch baking dish. Arrange browned chicken breasts atop the rice.

  • Mix ranch dressing, celery soup, mozzarella cheese, and almonds together in a bowl; pour over the chicken and rice, assuring the chicken is covered completely. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese over the ranch dressing mixture and top with crushed potato chips.

  • Bake in preheated oven until golden brown on top and the chicken is no longer pink in the center, 30 to 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Notes:

You can substitute tortilla chips for potato chips.

Use any cream-style salad dressing for the ranch. I use creamy caramelized onion and bacon dressing.
