Chicken dipped in a mixture of ranch seasoning and panko breadcrumbs then baked till crispy makes for the perfect delicious easy weeknight meal. Serve this with a salad and you have a high protein lower carb lunch or dinner.
I kept leftovers in the refrigerator to use in a salad or eat with vegetables for lunch during the week. Typically, I eat the chicken cold but if I want it warmed up, and to crisp the crust, I will stick it in the oven for 10 minutes or so. I use these pyrex glass containers to store the chicken in the refrigerator.
