If you are gearing up for Super Bowl Sunday then I have the perfect Game Day recipe for you. These Baked Buffalo Ranch Chicken Strips are perfect for a tailgating at home party.
These Baked Buffalo Ranch Chicken Strips are delicious and a better for you version of deep fried chicken strips. Who wants to be standing over a pan of hot grease frying chicken while the Super Bowl is in full swing. Not me. Plus you know this is going to be a Super Bowl Game to remember.
My Baked Buffalo Ranch Chicken Strips start out with fresh boneless chicken breasts and are dipped in a creamy buffalo ranch sauce made with Naturally Fresh® Classic Ranch Dressing and a buffalo wing sauce. Then they are dredged in my special homemade batter coating.
I love the flavor of Naturally Fresh® Classic Ranch. It tastes just like homemade Ranch Dressing. Naturally Fresh® products are available at Publix and Kroger in the refrigerated section.
Naturally Fresh® is a line of high quality homemade tasting dressings and dips that are made with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.
