Hidden Valley Ranch Review

So I was given a great opportunity to try out Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing and Seasoning Mixes. Now I've had the ranch dressing before, tastes great, but never had tried the mixes out. I never really knew what to do with them. 

After I received them though, I started looking up recipes to make with them and settled upon the Baked Ranch Chicken. It was actually to be breaded but with my healthier living diet I thought to skip the breaded part. I opened up the package and sprinkled half of the seasoning mix right onto the chicken along with some pepper. I let the chicken rest for about 30-45 minutes just so the flavor could sink in. I poured a tiny bit of water into the pan and popped it into the oven at 375. Once the chicken was at 140 I pulled it out and served it up! I used chicken breasts the first time around and it came out super moist and flavorful! I've baked chicken breast before, but never were they this moist. I have to say even the hardest person to please, my mom, loved them. That says a lot because she is not a huge fan of chicken at all and will only eat it from certain places. I'd recommend the seasoning mixes not only for chicken but pork too! I used it on some pork steaks and it made them really tender. 

I took the chicken breast and sliced it up into tiny strips and pieces. I then used them the next day to put on my salad for dinner. Of course it was topped off with a bit of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing. The salad was compromised of mixed greens, and I cheated a bit - I added cheese! Everything together tasted fantastic and I was really satisfied and full at the end of the meal.
