Baked Mississippi Chicken

baked Mississippi chicken in a white baking dish.

This tender, juicy chicken is loaded with flavor and so easy to toss together. I love that it's just 5 ingredients and so easy for any night of the week.

Yield 4 chicken breasts
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 packet au jus gravy mix
  • 1 packet ranch seasoning mix, see note
  • ΒΌ cup pepperoncini, plus more to taste
  • 4 tablespoons butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick spray.
  2. Add the au jus and ranch seasoning to a small bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Season the chicken on both sides with ½ of the seasoning mixture. Reserve the remaining seasoning mixture for another day. See note.
  4. Place chicken in the prepared baking dish.
  5. Arrange the sliced peppers over the top of each piece of chicken.
  6. Slice the butter into 8 pieces and place 2 slices of butter over each chicken breast.
  7. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
  8. Serve hot.

Notes

Be sure to use the ranch seasoning mix and not the ranch dip mix, as the seasoning is less salty than the dip.

We find it too salty to use the full amount of seasoning on just 4 chicken breasts. You could double the rest of the recipe and use all of the seasoning or store the seasoning in an air tight jar for next time.
