Baked Jalapeno Kettle Chip Chicken With Jalapeno Ranch

I tried this recipe out last week and it was yummmmmy.  I’d never had these jalapeno kettle chips before. And now I like them.  I figured they would be good because I like things with a bit of a bite to them. I still hate breading things though, it’s super awful and messy, but totally worth it because it always turns out super tasty. The jalapeno ranch dip I made was super good as well. I served the chicken with baked potatoes and seasoned, steamed broccoli. Yum.

Place into oven and bake for about 35 minutes, until cooked through.
