5-Ingredient Crispy Buffalo Ranch Chicken Recipe: Baked, Not Fried

This is another recipe inspired by a meal kit. This crispy buffalo ranch chicken recipe is exploding with flavor. It's healthier, too, because it is baked and not fried. The chicken stays moist and juicy, and the buffalo panko topping gets crunchy. Add the cool buttermilk ranch dressing, and this chicken recipe hits on all notes.

Serve this spicy baked chicken recipe with your favorite side dishes. I chose sweet carrots, which I roasted on the same baking sheet as the chicken, and buttery mashed potatoes. The chicken breast would also make a fantastic chicken sandwich
