Hidden Valley Original Ranch Dressing

(Disclaimer: I received these products to review from Crowdtap. All opinions shared are my own.)
Finding simple and delicious recipes are my kind of dinner motivation! Crowdtap has given me a great opportunity to try Hidden Valley Original Ranch Dressing for multiple food recipes and dips. Upon receiving the full sized bottle of Hidden Valley Ranch, on the back there contains an 'Original Ranch Cheddar Chicken' recipe. It is as follows:
                                        1 cup    Seasoned Bread crumbs
                                     1/4 cup    Shredded Sharp Cheddar cheese
                                     1/4 cup    Grated Parmesan cheese
                                              4    Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
                                     1/2 cup    Hidden Valley Original Ranch Dressing

Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix bread crumbs, Cheddar and Parmesan cheese. Coat the chicken with the dressing. Dredge in the bread crumb mixture. Place chicken on baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes. Makes 4 servings.
Coming from a sort of beginner at cooking trying this recipe for myself was super easy! The chicken turned out tender and moist. It was just delicious! This will definitely be made more often!
Another way I use the Ranch dressing is on tacos. Every Tuesday at my house is Taco Tuesday so this certainly comes in handy. Just pour the dressing over the meat and cheese, roll the wrap up and finished! This added seasoning tastes great, no other seasoning needed. I now never eat my tacos without it!
If you're on the go and looking for a healthy snack to take with you try using Ranch Dressing in smaller cups. Some nights before I go out I will prepare carrots and take these with me the next morning. The portion the cups come in is just enough for a daily serving of which ever veggies you desire to eat. It makes a great snack for lunch at work, school, or even a picnic!
Also there is a Hidden Valley Ranch Dip mix. Simply pour the mixture into a 16oz. container or bowl with sour cream and presto! You have great tasting dip! Great for parties or date movie nights! Also, you can as always, use as a dressing on salads.  
There are many ways to use Hidden Valley Original Ranch Dressing. I certainly need to discover more tasty recipes. What is your favorite way to use Hidden Valley Ranch dressing?
