baked ranch chicken and potatoes with broccoli and Parmesan cheese on sheet pan

I made this super quick and easy sheet pan dinner the other night, and the entire family loved it — even the pickiest eater said it was good!

The chicken was juicy and delicious, and the entire meal was done in 30 minutes. Plus, this one pan ranch chicken dinner cooks on just one pan for easy clean-up!

My family loves ranch dressing, and I usually make Instant Pot Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta or One Pan Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta or Crack Chicken Casserole or Crock Pot Chicken Bacon Ranch Sandwiches.

But this ranch chicken recipe is perfect when you don’t want pasta.You can find more easy chicken recipes in the recipe archives.


You only need a few simple ingredients for this easy chicken recipe. They should be easy to locate in your grocery store.

  • Chicken — I use thin boneless skinless chicken breasts so that they cook evenly
  • Olive oil — to coat the meat and potatoes and prevent them from sticking to the baking sheet
  • Ranch seasoning mix — or dry ranch dressing mix
  • Garlic powder — adds a little extra flavor
  • Baby potatoes — either yellow or baby red potatoes quartered or halved
  • Broccoli — optional, but makes it a complete meal

We love garlic, so I added the garlic powder. I also threw in some broccoli at the end and sprinkled a little grated Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley for extra flavor. It’s a very versatile recipe!

How to Make One Pan Ranch Chicken and Potatoes

First, line a baking sheet with foil. This makes clean-up way easier, but if you don’t want to use foil, you don’t have to.

Then, add the chicken breasts and potatoes in a single layer. I like to quarter the baby potatoes so that they cook faster.

Next, drizzle a little olive oil all over the chicken and potatoes. Stir the potatoes so that they’re evenly coated.

Sprinkle the ranch dressing packet on top of the chicken and potatoes. Then, season everything with garlic powder.

You can add a little salt and black pepper, to taste. The ranch powder has sodium in it, so I let people add extra seasoning later if they want.

Cooking Time

Bake the sheet pan ranch chicken and potatoes for 25 to 30 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken is 165 degrees f according to a meat thermometer and the potatoes are tender.

If your want to add some fresh broccoli, throw it on the pan during the last 5 minutes or so.

Total cook time may vary with size of chicken and your own oven.

Recipe Variations

Before serving, I like to sprinkle on some grated Parmesan cheese and fresh chopped parsley. For cheesier potatoes, grated cheddar or cheddar blend works well, too!

Instead of broccoli, use fresh green beans, cut bell peppers, cubed sweet potatoes, asparagus, carrots or Brussels sprouts.

You can substitute boneless skinless chicken thighs if you prefer dark meat. Chicken tenders are also a good choice.

How to Store and Reheat Leftovers

Refrigerate leftover chicken and veggies in an airtight container for up to 4 days. You can freeze leftovers for up to 3 months.

Reheat leftover ranch chicken in the microwave or in the oven on low heat.

Expert Tips

If you want to make this recipe with more chicken, I recommend doubling the ranch seasoning. I’ve made this with 6 to 8 chicken breasts before, and 1 packet isn’t enough to cover everything.

Use thinner pieces of chicken about the same size, and cut veggies into smaller pieces so that everything cooks evenly.

I usually mix all ingredients on the baking sheet, but you can use a separate bowl (large bowl) if that is easier.
