Keeping this weekend fun and easy in the kitchen with this Gluten-Free Crispy Baked Ranch Chicken recipe. Tender chicken coated with homemade ranch crumbs, oven-baked, then drizzled with fresh lemon juice. This chicken is for grown ups and kids alike. And not only is the chicken extra delicious but also healthier because the chicken is baked, not fried. Serve with baked crispy sweet potato fries or a zesty vegan summer potato salad for an easy dinner that’s packed with flavour.

the ingredients…

Crispy ranch coating made with gluten-free puffed rice, parmesan cheese and homemade gluten-free ranch seasoning is what makes this chicken so different. I know the list of ingredients is long, but it is all about the spices. I bet you have most of them in your pantry already. The recipe itself is pretty easy.

If you check out some of my chicken recipes, you’ll find the gluten-free chicken nuggets or the gluten-free chicken schnitzel or check out our complete list of gluten-free chicken recipes. You will find several delicious gluten-free chicken recipes. For some reason, at my house, chicken is always popular.

the steps…

First, make the ranch coating. This recipe is not made with bread crumbs. I thought I would try something different, so I used puffed rice. To make the ranch crumb mixture, place all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles bread crumbs—nothing to it. 


Now prepare the chicken. The chicken is dipped in egg whites for the crumbs to adhere to the chicken, then rolled in the ranch crumb mixture and baked. Nothing to it! 

If you want to keep dinner simple, add your favourite gluten-free dipping sauce  and enjoy the flavourful crispy baked chicken pieces as finger food.

The gluten-free ranch coating is extra crispy and super flavourful, and it is a nice switch up from roast chicken. But what I love even more is how simple this gluten-free recipe is, making weekend cooking easy.

This is a family-friendly extra special chicken dinner recipe that is healthier than fried chicken and is just as delicious. If you want to keep younger kids happy, serve it up with gluten-free creamy macaroni and cheese made in an instant pot. You can’t go wrong with two of their favourite foods. Enjoy!
