Ingredients:

6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup dry breadcrumbs (even better, use panko breadcrumbs)
1/4-1/3 cup parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/2-1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2-1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup prepared ranch salad dressing (use bottled salad dressing, you might need a bit more dressing)
1/4 cup melted butter (no substitutes)

Directions:

1  Set oven to 400° degrees (set oven rack to lowest position).
2  Lightly grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
3  In a shallow bowl mix together the dry breadcrumbs with Parmesan cheese, seasoned salt, black pepper and garlic powder.
4  Dip the chicken into the ranch dressing to coat both sides (allow any excess to drip off).
5  Coat in the breadcrumb mixture.
6  Place in a single layer onto a greased baking sheet or line with non-stick foil (do NOT bake in a smaller baking dish or the bottom of the chicken will be soggy).
7  Lightly drizzle the melted butter over each breast (for low-fat option omit the butter or use a diet alternative).
8  If desired you can sprinkle black pepper over the chicken pieces .
9  Bake uncovered for about 30-35 minutes or until the chicken is cooked).
