The recipe:

In an effort to make something quick and easy for dinner, I picked this recipe to make last night.  I have seen it a couple of times in HG emails, and usually when she mentions something more than once, it means it is a good recipe. 

You really can't get any easier than this for a chicken recipe.  Just sprinkle a 5oz chicken cutlet with a little pepper on both sides, then sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of ranch dressing mix on the top, and then a tablespoon of real bacon bits.  Bake in the oven and enjoy!  So easy!

This chicken turned out pretty decent.  It was well-seasoned, and I liked the combination of the ranch and bacon on the chicken.  I made some broccoli to go with it for dinner, as well as a side of mac and cheese for my 3-year-old (which I didn't eat).  I actually didn't think my son would even touch the chicken and broccoli, but I still put some on his plate with the mac and cheese.  Surprisingly, he ate all of his chicken and broccoli, and didn't even touch the mac and cheese.  For that reason alone, I would definitely call this a successful dinner.
