Almost Like a Crawfish Stampede

Some recipes lend themselves to playing around. I’ve made variations of several of them here on the blog but this one was rather new to me. On the menu I had one of my standards, Ranch Chicken, and as I was getting out the ingredients, I noticed the Cajun seasoning. I thought it would be a good mix: ranch and Cajun. Almost like having a crawfish stampede or eating gumbo around the campfire.

I liked the combination. It looked and tasted awesome.

A simple set of ingredients.

Cajun Ranch Chicken

Prep Time: 0 hr 0 min | Cook Time: 45 mins | Makes: 1 serving | Difficulty: Easy


  • Chicken (can use boneless chicken or boned)
  • Lime
  • Packet of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix
  • 2T Cajun spices


Preheat oven to 375°.

Place chicken in a baking dish and coat the top with lime juice. Mix the ranch mix and Cajun spice together and sprinkle over the chicken. Bake for 45 minutes.

    Great idea, I will try it! Some crawfish around the edges wouldn’t be bad either!

    Not exactly gumbo, but it would be tasty.

    I always have a problem keeping the crumbs on the meat. Is there a way to do it so that I don’t lose all the flavorings of the crumbs?
