Simple Barbecue Ranch Chicken: 3 Ways 3 Ingredients

Simple Barbecue Ranch Chicken: 3 Ways 3 Ingredients

Best All

3 Ingredients and 3 different ways to prepare one of the most, tender, flavorful and easy chicken dishes around! Prep is minimal, but bottled ranch dressing is NOT recommended—it’s not thick enough. In fact, I use a little less milk and more mayonnaise when preparing the dressing. It sticks to the chick better…

A nice organic Ranch dressing blend is available at your local natural market if you’re opposed to Supermarket brands. Or whip up your own from scratch; 1/2 cup each of sour cream & mayo, 1/4 cup chopped green onions, 2 cloves of fresh garlic, a tablespoon or 2 of ACV (apple cider vinegar) and a bit of salt and pepper blend wonderfully together right in front of your very eyes.

Directions:

Mix dressing and BBQ sauce together. Coat both sides of all pieces of chicken. Marinate for up to 2 hours or coat and cook right away. The chicken can be prepared 3 ways: baked in the oven for 45 minutes at 375* BBQed on the grill for a total of 40 minutes—20 minutes on both sides or smoked in as smoker for 45 minutes total. It’s great all 3 Ways!
