Tomatillo Ranch Chicken

Ok, ok, I know I've been on a total food kick lately, but I'm going with it.  Anything that gets me to cook dinner after a long day watching my little ones is fine by me.  This recipe didn't disappoint.  It was yummy, looked amazing, and the kids devoured did I!!!  I served this with Zataran's Spanish Rice.  Enjoy! 
Tomatillo Ranch Chicken
 This juicy chicken is flavorful and delicious after being marinated, cooked, and smothered in creamy tomatillo ranch dressing!
Serves: 6-8
  • 1 cup mayo
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 package buttermilk ranch dressing mix
  • 2½ teaspoons garlic
  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 3 tomatillos, husked and chopped
  • ½ teaspoon lime juice
  • 3-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  1. Blend together mayo, buttermilk and next five ingredients. Pour 1 cup of dressing into a large ziplock back. Add chicken breasts. Seal and chill at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 375. Discard marinade and place chicken breasts side by side in a shallow baking dish. Bake 20-25 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Top with additional dressing and serve with rice if desired. Enjoy!
