The inspiration for this recipe really got here from a breading bundle I grabbed on a whim on the retailer. It sounded so scrumptious I needed to give it a attempt. The idea was related — dredge hen in a tomato based mostly sauce after which right into a Panko seasoned combination.

We beloved the dinner and I immediately knew it was one thing that wanted to be re-created. The most effective information is, this re-creation is SO significantly better. The hen is extra flavorful and crunchier and the crust is even crispier.

However one of the best half in regards to the re-creation? The SAUCE. The packet didn’t have any point out of a sauce, as a result of the hen actually can stand by itself and be scrumptious, however I knew it could be that significantly better with a dipping sauce.

It did occur to be probably the most components although so in case you are within the best (& fewest components) dipping sauce I tried: seize 1/2 cup Ranch dip (not dressing) and add 1-2 tablespoons taco seasoning and completed. ✔️ONE PAN Mexican tortilla crusted chicken baked on one pan with plenty of veggies!

Apart from the sauce you may add a couple of different toppings IF you need (we’ve eaten this with simply the dipping sauce and it’s perfection). I’m fairly certain avocado or guac is all the time my default with something Mexican and it’s nice with this dish. Bitter cream, lime, cilantro, and even topping the cooked breaded hen with some cheddar cheese.

This dish is fairly simply personalized and better of all its simply easy to make typically! Undoubtedly one thing to get enthusiastic about ?
