Great Time-Saving Tip:

This recipe is perfect with leftover chicken. I love using my chicken from my Instant Pot Whole Chicken. Make the chicken ahead of time and use it all week long. I use it for sandwiches, wraps, or salads for lunch or dinner. I also add it to casseroles or soup for dinner.

Notes

Ranch Seasoning:

If you can't find ranch seasoning in your local store, it's easy to make your own. Try adding more or less of any spice to create a seasoning for your tastebuds.

  • ½ cup dry buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoons dried dill
  • 1 teaspoon dried chives
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper

Mix together and store in an airtight container. Measure and use according to directions.

Can a rotisserie chicken be used in this recipe? If so when would the ranch dressing be added?
