"This is an easy, quick recipe that provides very tasty results. I like to use a cast iron skillet. The ranch seasoning helps to blacken and get the skin crispy. Great served with potatoes, mashed or roasted, and green beans or asparagus."

Quick and easy for a weeknight main! We'll make this again, but not salt the chicken - there is plenty of saltiness from the dressing mix. We loved how crispy the skin came out. Thanks for sharing!
