    I didn't care much for chicken breast meat always came out dry, my wife brought some from her mums to cook up for her (she's 98). Someone on TV would marinate a whole chicken in buttermilk, we didn't have any but added some Ranch Dressing to the breasts in a bag and let sit for a day and half. I baked the chicken on a tray, turning occasionally and wow! really tender and moist. We always line the tray with parchment paper.

      I'm a huge fan of white meat and ranch 😋 I will definitely give this a try. Thank you so much

        Coz chicken breasts are quite thick I'll give 'em a bang with the tenderizing mallet to even out the thickness. Normally bought breasts or thighs with skin and bone and bake on a tray so the skin is crispy and eat it, plus save any fat and gelatin. The way I grew up we always save fat such as from bacon and use for cooking, back in the day we'd deep fry in beef fat or lard.

        I'll add cubed or wedged potato with the chicken, I sprinkle and rub in some turmeric which gives a nice yellow colour and if I have some fat rub that on the spudz.

        My fave kind of salad is long cucumber sliced paper thin plus onion and tomato paper thin.

          I love 🥒 salad with.tomatoes , and I also add 🥑. One of my favorites..Since starting a keto./.Paleo diet plan bacon is a must and I tend to like a little bit more flavor than coconut oil gives so I have been using bacon 🥓 grease. Chicken and potatoes are two good comfort foods for me but I have cut back on starch been trying more sweet potatoes usually once a week . I have put on my grocery list the chicken and ranch recipe looking forward on trying it.

            When it comes to soups, I usually just start with a recipe (bean and broth based usually) and just add what I have in my home or whatever sounds good. Usually, it comes out pretty good. I will occasionally use the prepackaged soup mixes, but not the seasoning (because it's WAY too salty for me). I add my own spices.

              Having turkey breast pieces marinated in Ranch dressing, plus a vegetable Indian curry sauce (from a pouch) on extreme long grain parboiled Basmati rice, plus mixed Parisian style veg from frozen.

                My fave stir-fry I order at a neighbourhood Thai Cafe Bistro is Drunken Noodle, it has chicken breast in it and thought they should of marinated it since it was dry pieces, tofu would have been better.

                  @thinman---when it comes to chicken and any other animal proteins with bones, what my husband does is once we are done with eating the "meat", he will boil down the bones into a broth. That way, we are getting as much out of that food item as we can.
