If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you might have noticed that I have a thing for ranch dressing.

I was born and raised in the Midwest, so basically ranch dressing flows through my veins.

Can’t stop, wont’ stop, sorry not sorry.

Anyway, the weather outside has been glorious and I’ve been grilling every chance I can get. We do a lot of grilled chicken in the summer and this ranch grilled chicken is our go to. I can’t believe I haven’t shared it before now!

You’re going to love how flavorful this chicken is and it’s totally kid friendly – what kid doesn’t love ranch? 

How to make this grilled chicken with ranch:

Whip up your marinade by mixing together some bottled or homemade ranch dressing with a good bit of avocado oil. Seems weird, but trust me. 

Add in some buttermilk, Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar, dill, hot sauce, a sprinkle of salt. 

Whisk well and you’ve got your marinade.

Toss your chicken into the marinade and be sure to coat every bit of the chicken.

You can marinate your chicken for anywhere from 30 minutes to 8 hours. I’m usually not super on top of my game, so the chicken usually gets 30 minutes to an hour in my house. 

Toss the chicken on the grill and cook for 5 minute or so per side, depending on how thick your chicken breasts are.

We obviously serve with a little extra ranch dressing for dipping, but like I said: ranch dressing flows through my veins. ????

Ranch Grilled Chicken

Yield: 6 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Additional Time: 8 hours

Total Time: 8 hours 20 minutes

This ranch grilled chicken comes out so juicy and flavorful! Serve with extra ranch on the side for dipping!


  • ½ cup ranch dressing
  • ½ cup avocado oil
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts


  1. Add everything but the chicken to a mixing bowl and whisk well to combine.
  2. Add the chicken breasts to a 9×13 baking dish or gallon zip top bag and add the marinade. Stir well to coat the chicken.
  3. Marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes and up to 8 hours. The longer the chicken marinates, the more flavorful it will be.
  4. Heat the grill to a medium heat.
  5. Remove the chicken from the marinade, letting much of it drip off the chicken, and add it to the hot grill.
  6. Grill for 5-10 minutes per side, until cooked through, depending on the thickness of your chicken.


Serve with extra ranch for dipping, if desired.
