Our favorite store-bought Ranch dressings are Hidden Valley, Ken's, and Wish-Bone.
I used jarred sliced pepperoncini peppers.
Do NOT make the Au Jus Gravy. This recipe only uses the dry mix.
You can use this marinade on any cut of chicken – breasts, tenders, thighs, wings, or drumsticks/legs.
You can use boneless or bone-in chicken. Adjust the cooking time to ensure an internal temperature of 165ºF.
Is Grilled Mississippi Chicken spicy? No. Pepperoncini peppers are not spicy. They are very mild.
I suggest pounding the chicken breast to an even thickness. We put the chicken in a ziplock bag and use a flat meat mallet to carefully pound out the hump. This ensures that the chicken cooks evenly and you don’t have juicy chicken and half-dry chicken.
You will want to marinate the chicken for at least an hour. We almost always let our chicken marinate overnight. I mix up the marinade before bed and let it hang out in the refrigerator until we are ready to grill.
I don’t have a grill. Can I cook the chicken in the oven or skillet? Yes! To cook the chicken breasts inside, pan-sear it for 3 to 4 minutes per side. Place on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 400ºF for 10 minutes.
