Teriyaki Ranch Chicken Bake

teriyaki ranch baked chickenWhat’s for your dinner tonight? Perhaps…, chicken?

Then, may I suggest this teriyaki ranch chicken bake recipe for you to try? If you have a bottled teriyaki sauce and a ranch dressing, a few strips of bacon, some cheddar cheese and green onions, you are all set to make this delicious chicken dinner in a very short time with hardly any effort.

Our life is busy whether you are a full time worker, a staying home mother, a student, or even a couch potato. Coming up with a dinner plan can be stressful and this recipe can ease your burden off the shoulder.

I have been making this recipe for many years and my family always loved it. It sounds a little bizarre to combine teriyaki sauce with ranch dressing, but they become so delightful together. You won’t be disappointed.

 

Get your favorite teriyaki sauce and ranch dressing. This is like East meets West blind date in a random place.

BTW, my family’s favorite ranch dressing has to be Hidden Valley. What is yours?

 

First, fry up a few bacon strips until crisp. Take them out and crumble them into small pieces.

 

With the remaining bacon grease, brown chicken breasts until golden. Do not cook all the way.

 

Transfer the browned chicken breasts to a greased baking pan and drizzle teriyaki sauce over, about 1 tablespoon per breast.

 

Squirt some ranch dressing to cover…

 

Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese and crumbled bacon pieces on top of chicken.

 

Sprinkle half of the chopped green onion on top and they are ready to enter to the oven.
Bake for 20 minutes in a preheated 350F oven or until the chicken is fully cooked.

Sprinkle the remaining green onion on top to garnish.

Easy, right? So flavorful and delicious! Don’t forget to scoop all the juices in the pan to drizzle over the chicken when you serve. Plain rice would make a wonderful accompaniment to soak up all the goodness.

My daughter turned 12 yesterday. She says she finally became “officially” teenager. I don’t know if the *official teenager* title will change anything about her. She is still the same goofy, lovely, happy, smart little girl of mine.

Time runs. Kids don’t stop growing.  I better get my dinners ready fast.

    What brand of teriyaki sauce is that? I’m looking for ones that don’t contain high frutcose syrup and stuff.

    Dish looks delish!!

      The brand name is Wasama. I don’t see the fructose corn syrup in the list of ingredients on the bottle, BUT it has some MSG in it which I found quite common in many Japanese condiments.

    This really does sound good and it looks beautiful. There’s something to be said about those semi-homemade meals. They sure do make life easier and the rush to get dinner on the table more relaxing than a frantic rush.

    Thanks for sharing, I will definitely save this recipe to try.

    This looks salty, cheesy, creamy and delicious — kind of like a stuffed baked potato with chicken. I’d never have thought to combine teriyaki and ranch dressing — but why not?

    this looks great! thank you for the recipe.
    BTW I love Hidden Valley’s Spicy Ranch Dressing we also have a local (Eastern Washington State) Ranch dressing mix called Uncle Dan’s that is really good too.

    Holly, this looks amazing, as do all the other dishes I’ve just seen on your beautiful site! I was inspired to eat – but, alas, not (yet) make – bibimbap for lunch today at the new place at Pavilion (although I’m sure yours is better)!

      There is a very nice one in double tree hotel off Jalan Tun Rajak. There a a few in Mon Kiara as well but a little far from Ampang. Are you free next Tuesday?

    A big hit at our house! The teriyaki sauce gives it a hint of wine flavor – not what you would expect – really excellent and easy to put together!

    This was amazing! The flavors really blended well together. I made this and put it on my blog. I hope you don’t mind. I linked you, of course!
