By now you’ve seen those packets of instant “just add mayo/buttermilk or sour cream” ranch mix. Pretty cool idea, right? Not rather wallet friendly though, huh? Sure it’s not super expensive but my motto is why buy if I can make it myself?! And most importantly, it’s a lot cheaper, I can control the ingredients AND it’s really, REALLY good!
I thought I had posted this a while ago but apparently I didn’t. Sorry 🙁
Use this on chicken or fries right out of the fryer/oven Ranch chicken is INSANE! You can mix it in with your flour/Panko OR just season the nekkid bird with it before you grill or saute it.
Make this and tell me how you used it! I’d love to hear some of your creative ideas!
OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH… stop the presses! I got an idea’r that I wanna share…
Put this in your pizza or bread dough! OMG… Can you imagine? Make a Buffalo Chicken Pizza and have the crust ranch flavored!!!
