Recipe Notes

  • To reduce the sodium in this recipe use low-sodium ranch seasoning and low-sodium au just mix.
  • Shred the leftovers for sandwiches.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Season the chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder (to taste), then season with half of the dry ranch seasoning packet and half of the au jus seasoning packet. Put the chicken into a baking dish or ovenproof skillet. Top the chicken with pats of butter and some sliced pepperoncini.
  2. Bake in a preheated 425-degree F oven for about 25 minutes. Remove the chicken from the oven and turn the oven off. Top each chicken breast with a slice of cheese. Put it back into the oven for about 5 minutes for the cheese to melt. (Chicken should have an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.)
