Buffalo Ranch Baked Chicken

Buffalo Ranch Baked Chicken

Over the years, I have had it relatively easy when it comes to dinner. You see, Evan ate NOTHING so it didn’t really matter what I made. He was an equal opportunity food hater. These days, though, he’s developed quite the appetite. When we used to have to force him to finish half of his food, he now asks for seconds. While this is great…it also means that I have to up my dinner game. Baked chicken is always a hit with him but sometimes the rest of us get a bit bored. If this sounds like your family (or if you are just looking for a new recipe), check out this Buffalo Ranch Baked Chicken. It is a crowd pleaser!
