I’m finally sharing one of our favorite dishes of the month: my creamy ranch chicken! I’ve made this what feels like a million times at this point. It’s become a favorite with my family, it’s just simple, delicious food.

It’s not fancy, it’s not complicated, and it’s definitely not the prettiest dish in the world. But it sure is yummy!

Honestly, I have no idea what really inspired this chicken. I’ve been making a lot of Asian dishes and spicy soups so far this year. But lately, I’ve really been feeling a need to change up my recipes.

I thought hard about dishes I hadn’t made in a while. Then, I had the idea to create a dinner with my favorite homemade ranch seasoning mix. It’s sounded so yummy!

Growing up, ranch dressing was always my favorite. I often snacked on carrots and ranch dressing after school. It’s the yummiest!

The details

Step 1: mix the chicken

Use either chicken breasts or thighs here. Either one is great. My mom loves chicken breasts, but my brothers enjoy the thighs. I’ll usually use a mix of the two!

Now, toss the chicken with cream cheese and my homemade ranch seasoning spice mix. Then add dried parsley, dried chives, dried dill, garlic powder, and paprika. Toss well to really coat the chicken. Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature or it will not mix easily.

Step 2: add everything else

Next, add the onion, then salsa verde, pickled jalapeños, and cream. Or try using canned coconut milk, yum. Mix in the parmesan, then put the broccoli on top.

The salsa verde is the secret here. It adds just the right amount of spice to the sauce. We love the flavor!

Step 3: bake

And now you bake. In about 30 to 40 minutes, you’ll have perfectly cooked spicy ranch chicken and broccoli in a very deliciously creamy sauce.

All you have to add is steamed rice. Orzo pasta would be really nice too. I also love serving this with my honey beer bread on the side.

How are the leftovers?

They taste even better the following day. The flavors have time to mend, and the sauce is that much more intense.

You could even add some crispy bacon to the top. I’m sure that would be so great too!
