Grilled Parmesan ranch chicken is made with boneless skinless chicken breasts seasoned with ranch dressing mix. Grill the chicken and then finish with fresh Parmesan cheese. 

Grilled Parmesan ranch chicken

Parmesan and ranch are two flavors that are easy to mix together on almost any savory dish. You can keep a couple of packets or ranch mix in your pantry or use a homemade dressing mix.  Grilled Parmesan ranch asparagus is a great alternative to just roasting asparagus. 

Parmesan Ranch Chicken Ingredients:

  • Chicken breast, about 1/2″ thick
  • Oil
  • Dry ranch seasoning or use homemade Italian dressing mix
  • Grated fresh parmesan cheese
  • Shredded parmesan cheese
  • Fresh parsley

Parmesan Ranch Chicken Directions:

Red pastry brush coating chicken breasts in oil

Preheat your grill on medium high heat. Prepare the chicken by coating each side with a high heat cooking oil. Olive oil, coconut oil or avocado oil all work well for grilling. 

Sprinkling ranch dressing mix on chicken breasts

Once the chicken is coated in oil, add the seasonings. First, sprinkle one side of the chicken with ranch dressing mix. You may not use the entire packet -or you can. It’s up to you on how much you like the ranch dressing.

Next sprinkle on the grated parmesan cheese. For this step, use the grated Parmesan cheese that you buy in the canister, not the fresh stuff. You will use that at the end.  Add some pepper to taste. The ranch dressing already has salt in it, but if you want more, you can add that, as well.

Cook the chicken breasts on a preheated grill, for 4-6 minutes on each side or until center is no longer pink. The timing may change depending on how hot your grill is and the size of the chicken breasts.
