Ranch Chicken Legs

I found this recipe right after hubby and I got married.  It was in our regular main dish rotation for a few years.  The ranch chicken legs were also a go to recipe for when I entertained family members.  During the past few years, I have made it infrequently.  So when I found chicken legs on sale, I decided to put it on our menu.

I love how simple this recipe is and how tasty the chicken is. 

Stars of the recipe:

  • chicken legs (I would try to have 2 legs per person)

  • 1/2 cup of bisquick (More if needed ~ really depends on the number of chicken legs.)

  • 1 package of dry ranch dressing mix

  • 2 Tbsp. butter


  1. In a ziplock bag, place bisquick and ranch dressing.  Mix well.  Set aside.

  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  3. Place butter in a 9 by 13 baking dish.  After the oven is done preheating, place the pan in the oven until the butter is melted.

  4. Once the butter is melted, pull the baking dish out of the oven.

  5. Dredge each piece of chicken in the bisquick-ranch mixture.  Make sure each piece is coated.  Place each chicken leg in the baking dish skin side down.

  6. Bake at 400 degrees for 20  minutes.  Pull the baking dish out of the oven.

  7. Flip the chicken and then bake for an additional 15 minutes.

  8. Enjoy!
