  • 8 Chicken Thighs or Breasts – best with skin left on
  • 1 cup Buttermilk or enough to fill up the bottom of a large pan for coating chicken
  • 1 1 oz. Ranch Dressing Mix
  • 3 cups Corn Flakes Crushed – I used Kellogs
  • Salt and Pepper


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  • Now set out a pan, or large bowl of buttermilk – if you don’t have buttermilk, add a little squeeze of lemon juice to regular milk. Let is sit for a few minutes, and it turns to buttermilk!
  • Whisk in your seasoning
  • In a separate pan pour in crushed cornflakes
  • Pour buttermilk into a shallow container, and mix in the ranch dressing packet contents
  • Place your chicken in the milk and using tongs coat both sides
  • Use tongs to lift the chicken out of the buttermilk, and place into the cornflakes
  • Coat both sides
  • Set onto a baking sheet – I used non stick foil
  • Spoon more buttermilk mixture onto the coated chicken
  • Sprinkle more Cornflakes onto the ranch mixture coating the chicken a second time
  • Sprinkle chicken with salt, and pepper
  • Set in the oven and depending on your chicken pieces bake 40+ minutes (temp in the meatiest part should read 170, meat should not be pink at the bone, and juices should run clear) Use the baking chart above to help with length of cooking time
