Why I Like It: Fried chicken is the ultimate love to eat, but hard to make food. In addition, the guilt over clogging your families arteries isn’t worth the hassle. This version uses the oven and 3 simple ingredients. Try it!

3-1/2 pounds of bone-in chicken - skin removed
1 cup ranch dressing
2 cups instant potato flakes

Preheat oven to 450 and coat a baking sheet with cooking spray Brush chicken pieces with ranch dressing and roll in potato flakes. Arrange on baking sheet and place in oven. Turn oven down to 350 and bake until juices run clear, about 25 minutes.
