    This was great but there was no tempeture for the oven so I set mine at 375 degrees and cooked it for 45 mins. MY husband really liked it to . - 1/29/09

    I baked it at 375 for 35 minutes and it was so juicy and crispy on the outside. Very good and I would make it again. - 2/4/09

    I didn't have rice cereal so I ground up some wheat flakes. And instead of dipping in egg whites, I let my chicken marinate in some buttermilk for about 15 minutes (it's healthier than most people think and really enhances the ranch flavor). I took others' advice and only used 1/2 of a packet. Great - 1/27/09

    Soooo good! I loved the crunchy texture of the Rice Krispies and so did my kids! I even used the left-over chicken to top a salad the next day with a little balsamic vinegar. This is definitely a recipe I will make over and over! - 2/1/09

    You can make this recipe with 1/4 cup ranch and 1/3 cup bread crumbs. Just dip the chicken in the ranch then the bread crumbs. You dont need to use the butter or egg. And it still tastes amazing! - 2/3/09

    This was great! I did modify it a bit and used panko bread crumbs rather than rice cereal- next time I'll also probably use less ranch as it was slightly too salty, which is a person taste. - 2/2/09

    Yummy! I have made this twice already. The second time I made it I reserved about 1/4 packet of ranch and once had everything coated I sprinkled it evenly over the chicken breasts. - 2/5/09

    These came out really good. I used bread crumbs instead of crispy rice cereal, but I think next time I would use less because I had so much left over. I also added a little fat free plain yogurt to the egg whites for a extra flavor. I will totally make these again! - 2/1/09

    I wish the original contributor would answer the many people who have asked this question: What temp. is it supposed to be cooked?
    Please remember that not everyone is a natural-born cook (I can burn water) & some of us have no clue what temperature to use unless its in the recipe :( - 1/22/09

    This recipe was amazing! Left out the parmesan cheese, used Rice Chex and added bacon bits to the mix. We ground up everything into a crunchy powder, sliced the chicken into strips, threw it a bag and shook it up. Put it in for about 25 min @ 375. Used tortillas and made wraps- yum! - 1/31/09

    I used panko bread crumbs because I didn't have any rice cereal, and it turned out great. My husband said I could make this every night of the week he loved it so much. - 2/4/09

    My whole family loved it. My kids had a ball fixing it too. They loved the crusing of rice krispees and when they added it to the chicken and it snap, crakled, and popped...they thought it was the coolest. Great meal Highly recommended. - 2/4/09

    Yum!! I followed the suggestion about crunching up the cereal and going a little lighter on the Ranch mix. Good pointers! Loved this recipe and so did the family! - 1/26/09

    This chicken was sooo good, I will definatly make it again. My husband (who always has to have some kind of sauce for his chicken) said it was so flavorful he didn't even need anything to dip it in! Kids loved it too! Wonderful! - 2/9/09

    I made this this afternoon after considering the comments -- I crushed the rice cereal in a plastic bag wtih a rolling pin and then cut back on the dry dressing mix by about 1.5 tablespoons. Baked at 350 for nearly an hour, and the flavor was great, and it was really juicy. Will make again! - 1/24/09
