These parmesan ranch chicken bites make a great appetizer or dinner. These chicken bites are coated with a breadcrumb, dry ranch dressing and parmesan cheese mixture. The chicken bites are a little work to prepare but the result is well worth it. The chicken is first rolled in flour, then dipped in egg and then rolled in a breadcrumb mixture. The chicken pieces are then fried in oil until golden brown. You can either use a pot or deep-fryer to cook the chicken. The easiest way would be to use a deep-fryer. You can serve with bottled ranch dressing if desired. Enjoy.
