Oven Baked Mississippi Chicken - Packed with tangy banana peppers, and bold ranch flavor.

Mississippi Chicken




Yield 8 servings

This Mississippi Chicken is quick, easy, and delicious!  It is packed with bold ranch flavor and the tangy flavor of banana peppers combined perfectly to cover the tender chicken.  This can go from the fridge to the oven in as little as 10 minutes for a simple week night meal.



  1. Preheat the oven to 375˚F.
  2. Lay the chicken in the  bottom of a large casserole dish so that it is flat and not overlapping.  Sprinkle the ranch seasoning over the top of the chicken. Next spread the banana peppers over the ranch seasoning.  Then top the banana peppers with pats of butter.  Top it all evenly with the shredded cheese.
  3. Bake on the middle rack in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through (165˚F internal temperature.
  4. Serve hot over rice, cauli rice, sauteed greens, or with your favorite sides. Enjoy!


  • I use either Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning or homemade ranch seasoning.  If you are gluten free make sure to use homemade ranch seasoning.
  • If your chicken breasts are thick, you may want to slice them in half lengthwise so that they are half as thick.  This will help them cook more quickly and evenly.
  • You can also use chicken tenderloins, chicken thighs or other cuts, however the cook time may change.
