So, back to this skillet ranch chicken.
You all know how much I love my skillets for everything from cooking French toast or scrambling eggs for brunch to getting restaurant quality steaks for supper to making pineapple upside down cake for dessert. There’s just nothing like a good skillet in my book.
For this skillet ranch chicken recipe, I simply drizzled a little olive oil into my skillet over medium heat until it slightly shimmered. Then, added my chicken, potatoes and carrots tossed with my homemade ranch seasoning and cooked on the cooktop until my chicken was browned on both sides, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Then, I popped my skillet into a preheated oven and cooked until the chicken was cooked through.
Here’s my Skillet Ranch Chicken recipe. I hope you love it as much as we do!
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
- 3 carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch slices
- 1 pound small red potatoes, quartered
- 1 tablespoon homemade ranch seasoning mix
- Preheat oven to 350º F.
- Drizzle olive oil into a medium skillet over medium heat. Once the olive begins to shimmer slightly, add chicken, carrots, and potatoes. Lightly toss with ranch seasoning mix and cook until chicken has browned on one side, about 3 - 4 minutes, before turning to brown on the other side.
- Once chicken has browned, place skillet into preheated oven until the chicken has cooked through and the juices run clear when pricked with a sharp knife.
- Remove from the oven and allow to rest for about 5 minutes before serving.
