10 Minute Ranch Chicken
$11.77 Recipe/$1.96 Serving
Easy ranch chicken bites are the perfect 10 minute meal idea! This simple recipe pairs well with any sides and only has a few ingredients! Perfect for weeknight meals or meal prep this ranch chicken recipe is gluten free, keto, low carb, paleo and Whole30 friendly!
Start by adding a gallon sized ziplock bag to a large bowl (to help the ziplock back stay upright). Open the ziplock bag so you can easily add the chicken.
Cut the chicken breast (or tenders) into bite size pieces. I use kitchen shears for this. Add the chicken to the ziplock bag.
Once the chicken is cut, add the garlic olive oil, apple cider vinegar and spices. Seal the ziplock bag and shake it well to distribute the spices.
If you have the time, it’s best to marinade the chicken for at least 20 minutes (up to 8 hours)
After marinating, preheat a cast iron skillet or stainless steel pan over medium heat.
Once the pan is hot, add the chicken and let it cook for 5 minutes without touching it.
After 5 minutes use a spatula and move the chicken around to the other side. Cook again 5 more minutes stirring occasionally.
Budget tip: To make this meal more budget friendly, use boneless, skinless chicken thighs. This recipe would be $8.77 recipe/$1.46 per serving using this swap.
If you don’t have chicken breast you can also use chicken tenders, turkey breast, boneless skinless chicken thighs.
