Here’s a freezer recipe that was sooo delicious: CHEDDAR RANCH CHICKEN. I thought I had made this before so I didn’t get any photos of after it was done. Then I realized I was thinking of the Ranch Parmesan Chicken, not this Cheddar Ranch chicken. Po-tate-o po-tah-to 😉

We actually liked this one even better, I think the cheese made it extra tender.

Cheddar Ranch Chicken - includes freezer instructions. Make a double batch and freeze the extra. Could sub out the mayo for Greek yogurt.
