Ranch Chicken Breasts

You will need:

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • Ranch dressing
  • 2 1/2 cup of bread crumbs
  • 1 Large zip-lock bag
  • Pepper
What to do:

  1. Place your two rinsed chicken breasts into the zip-lock bag.
  2. Pour in as much ranch as needed to marinate the chicken.
  3. Securely close the bag and begin massaging the ranch on the chicken.
  4. Leave the bag with the ranch and chicken in the fridge for about an hour.
  5. Preheat the oven to 400*F.
  6. Put bread crumbs in a large mixing bowl.
  7. Take the chicken out of the bag and cover them with the crumbs.
  8. Place the chicken breasts on a glass baking dish and cook for 20 minutes on each side.
  9. Set out to cool and enjoy.

            My grandmother would sometimes make this with macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, and salad. When I was young I loved this a lot and I still do. It is always great when the chicken is cooked right and the meat is still juicy and the outside has a crunch to it.

Mashed Taters

You will need:

  • 8 potatoes.
  • 1 stick of butter.
  • 1/4 cup of milk.
  • 3/4 cup sour cream.
  • 2 cloves of diced garlic.
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper
  • 2 teaspoons of salt.


  1. Peel potatoes.
  2. Put them in a pot with boiling water.
  3. Let them cook for 15 minutes or until they become soft.
  4. While they are cooking, dice the garlic and set it aside.
  5. Strain the potatoes and put them back into the pot.
  6. Add the milk, butter, and sour cream.
  7. You can now begin to mix everything together with a mixer or a masher.
  8. When everything looks combined enough add the salt, pepper, and diced garlic.
  9. Mix everything in together and serve.

            For me this is a simple and yummy thing to make. I love making it as a side dish to some meat like steak, ribs, or meatloaf. This is my favorite thing to make because it always turns out creamy and good because of the sour cream. The sour cream and the butter really give it the texture. If you are allergic to milk feel free to use soy or almond milk or even coconut milk. The milk is just there to make it easier to mix up. Give it a try and enjoy!  :)
