Tell me more about this BBQ Ranch Chicken!


For some, cooking chicken seems intimidating since it can be easy to make them too dry. The trick here is marinating the BBQ Ranch Chicken. The chicken will absorb the flavor from the sauces and become juicier and easier to cook. Put the BBQ sauce and the Ranch into a bag along with the chicken and let marinated for over 4 hours.


Why 4 hours? This is a long amount of time for the protein to absorb the flavors of your two favorite sauces. What you are left with is a juicy & delicious BBQ Ranch Chicken. Finally, sear them on some hot grill grates and you will have perfect grill marks! When should you make this? Anytime! Honestly, this is a get dish for impressing friends at a cookout. It is also a great meal for the whole family.
