I love to have packets of Hidden Valley Ranch Mix on hand. Besides the fact that they make just about the best ranch dressing imaginable, they can be used to season up almost anything you cook. In addition to perking up chicken strips, they also do a great job at seasoning potato wedges.

These Ranch Chicken Fingers develop a super crispy coating as they fry that has plenty of seasoning. The chicken meat stays tender and moist.

The chicken tenders are first coated in flour mixed with some of the ranch seasoning. Then they are dipped in egg and coated in panko crumbs mixed with ranch seasoning.
