Back in the day when I ate more processed food, Ranch dressing mix was a staple of my cupboard. They had a recipe on a packet for chicken strips that my son loved. You put a packet of mix in bread crumbs, coat the chicken and bake it in the oven. It was easy, tasty and (I felt) a better choice than fried chicken nuggets from a fast food place. Christopher loved it when I made those for dinner.
I don’t want the salt and MSG that’s in those packets, but I do still like the flavor. So, this morning I searched and found a recipe at Food.com This is what I modified it into. It is in a little container in my cupboard and has already been used for vegetable dip.
3 tablespoon dried parsley
1 tablespoon dried dill weed
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground pepper
1 Tbsp salt
Stir it up, put it in an airtight jar.
If you want to use this to make salad dressing combine 1 tablespoon mix with 1 cup mayonnaise and 1 cup milk.
Otherwise use 1 tablespoon in any recipe calling for an envelope of ranch dressing mix.
Sprinkle it on popcorn and you will love me.
