The Best Chicken You Will Ever Eat. Period.

This recipe is one that I found years ago on Allrecipes.com.  It sounded a little bizarre because of the odd mix of ingredients (ranch and teriyaki, wha??) but sometimes those are the best recipes, in my opinion so I printed it out and promptly forgot I had it :).  I found it last week and decided to give it a whirl...and OMG it is the absolute best chicken I have had in my life and I am NOT exaggerating.  If you don't love this chicken recipe there is something wrong with you!  I don't know what sort of culinary gods were shining down on the woman that thought this one up, but I wish I could be so lucky!  You can find the original recipe here.  She calls it "Anniversary Chicken" because she made it for her in-laws' 50th wedding anniversary where it was a huge hit.  I served ours with a salad and rice to soak up all the wonderful sauce.  We even put the leftover sauce over steamed broccoli the next day and it was to.die.for. I really do hope you try it!

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
1/2 cup ranch dressing
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
3 green onions, chopped
1/2 (3 ounce) can bacon bits (I use Hormel Real Bacon brand because, well, it tastes like real bacon!)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.   In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts, and saute 4 to 5 minutes each side, until lightly browned. Place browned chicken breasts in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Brush with teriyaki sauce, then spoon on salad dressing. Sprinkle with cheese, green onions and bacon bits. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.


  1. This is an odd mix, but I'm trusting you! It looks delicious! I make a lot of chicken and I'm always looking for a new way.

  2. You're right, this is delish!!! Good find, sister!

  3. First couple of bites seemed good but turned out it is way too salty for our taste. :-(

  4. Oh no! I'm sorry to hear that. If it seems too salty I would try looking for a lower sodium teriyaki sauce or reducing the amount used in the recipe. Teriyaki sauces vary a lot from really sweet to almost soy sauce-like in taste. You might just need to play around till you find one that suits your tastes.

  5. This is called Anniversary chicken. I have been making this recipe for years. Found it on allrecipes.com back in 2004. P.S. cook 3-4 strips bacon first then brown chicken in bacon grease. Tastes better!

  6. That sounds great! I'll have to try that next time. Thanks for the tip!

  7. Omg. Made this for dinner tonight and it was amazing! My family loved it.

  8. I want to try this it sounds really good.

  9. I work with chicken alot also, going to try sounds so good.
