If you are looking for a quick and easy baked chicken recipe that is full of flavor then you are going to love this Cheddar Ranch Chicken Thighs Recipe. When I am running short on time, this Cheddar Ranch Chicken Thighs Recipe is quick to put together and pop in the oven to bake.
Cheddar Ranch Chicken Thighs Recipe
This Cheddar Ranch Chicken Thighs Recipe has an amazing topping made with cheddar cheese, mayo, ranch and garlic. If you are thinking it is a little bit odd to have mayo because you don’t like mayo I will tell you that you can not even tell it was used once you bake the chicken.
The reason I use chicken thighs when cooking is because they cook faster then chicken breasts. On busy nights I don’t have the time to prep chicken breasts or cut them thinner so they can cook faster. So my easy solution is to buy chicken thighs that are smaller, thinner and they cook much faster!
If you are Keto or prefer not to use packaged ranch dressing you can easily use your favorite homemade ranch dressing instead of the package ranch dressing.
When making cheddar ranch chicken for dinner, it depends on my mood for what sides I make with it. I love making veggies to go with it and a salad. Normally my go to veggies are whole roasted cauliflower, microwave baked sweet potato, Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries. If you are looking for more sides to go with it, my kids also love Garlic Rice (Made even easier if you use a rice cooker). If you want super simple, use a veggie steamer and make some steamed broccoli and top with butter!
How to make Cheddar Ranch Chicken Thighs Recipe
When I bake my cheddar ranch chicken in the oven I use a baking dish. I prefer to use one that is deeper because there are a lot of juices that end up at the end when you bake chicken thighs.
