Crunchy Buffalo Ranch Chicken (Oven-Baked)

Does Buffalo and ranch go together?

The answer is of course YES! The combination tastes creamy, tangy, and slightly spicy. We use Frank’s RedHot Original Seasoning and mix it with Panko bread crumbs, melted butter, salt and pepper. Then we coat the chicken with buttermilk ranch, then the seasoned Panko and oven-bake it to create a flavorful, crunchy crust. Top the chicken with a drizzle of buttermilk ranch and now you’ve done it.

We were inspired by an EveryPlate recipe to recreate this crunchy buffalo chicken. It was so good, my husband is now obsessed. If you love tasty cheap dinners, check them out
