  • cooking spray

  • 3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into large chunks

  • ¼ cup ranch dressing

  • cup panko bread crumbs

  • cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil; place a wire cooling rack on top and spray with cooking spray.

  2. Put chicken into a gallon-size resealable plastic bag. Add ranch dressing; seal and shake bag to coat chicken evenly.

  3. Mix panko, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and parsley together in a bowl; pour into bag with chicken. Seal and shake bag to coat thoroughly. Remove from bag; place on rack in a single layer.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Turn broiler on high; broil until crispy, about 1 minute.
