Frequently Asked Questions
I prefer to make this with thighs, but you can certainly use breasts if you have them to hand. Reduce the cooking time by 5 to 10 minutes so that you don’t overcook them.
The beauty of this recipe is that it is a full meal all made in one skillet. It’s got protein, carbs and veggies so it’s really all you need!
This is best served right out of the oven so that the chicken is nice and juicy, but if you have leftovers they will keep well, covered in the fridge, for 3 to 4 days. You can reheat it in the oven at 360F for 15 minutes to warm through. You may want to add a little water or stock to the dish so that it doesn’t dry out.
Sure! Be sure to defrost it first though or it won’t cook through fully.
This BBQ ranch chicken has been on my menu several times over the last few weeks! Simple and easy to prep with hands off cooking, it really is a no brainer!
- For best results, make this recipe in an ovenproof 12 inch skillet with a lid.
- I prefer to use skin on boneless thighs. You can use skinless if you prefer. If you use thighs with the bone, you will need to increase the cooking time.
- Make sure that your chicken is fully cooked through. It should be an even white color with no pink and it should register at 165F with an instant read thermometer.
This BBQ ranch chicken is crazy delicious! So simple but so tasty, and I love that even the cleanup is a breeze!

Love everything about this, and so easy to make!
I agree with the first commenter who said “After #6 it gets confusing”. You don’t say at what point to put the ‘skillet’ in the oven. The last ingredient is also missing. It just says “1/4. “. It doesn’t say of what. May I respectfully ask that you state it should be an oven-proof skillet with a lid in your notes and that you answer the above two questions? This sounds like an awesome recipe but I am not a good enough cook to figure these things out without clarification.
My daughter will only eat broccoli with this dressing…this may be a great way to get her to eat chicken more often too.
TOtally! Great idea :)
This should have an appearance in my house soon! Will surely be a big hit!! Love your photos! ;)
