Ranch Parmesan Chicken and Lindsay’s Red Lobster Biscuits

I needed to use up some chicken and only use the stuff I had already (since it was too cold to go out to the store). I went and pillaged Foodislove's Weblog and found this. It was pretty good.

Ranch Parmesan Chicken and Lindsay’s Red Lobster Biscuits
Serves: 3

Ranch Chicken Ingredients:
+4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
+1 cup panko breadcrumbs
+1/4-1/3 cup parmesan cheese
+1 teaspoon seasoning salt
+1 teaspoon ground black pepper
+1 teaspoon garlic powder
+1 cup Hidden Valley prepared ranch salad dressing
+1/4 cup melted butter (no substitutes)

Set oven to 400° degrees (set oven rack to lowest position).
Lightly grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
In a shallow bowl mix together the dry breadcrumbs with Parmesan cheese, seasoned salt, black pepper and garlic powder.
Dip the chicken into the ranch dressing to coat both sides (allow any excess to drip off).
Coat in the breadcrumb mixture.
Place in a single layer onto a greased baking sheet or line with non-stick foil (do NOT bake in a smaller baking dish or the bottom of the chicken will be soggy). If you have a cooking rack you can place on the baking sheet it is even better)
Lightly drizzle the melted butter over each breast (for low-fat option omit the butter or use a diet alternative).
If desired you can sprinkle black pepper over the chicken pieces .
Bake uncovered for about 30-35 minutes or until the chicken is cooked).
**At the end of cooking, I set it to broil for about 2-3 minutes to crisp up the top.

Biscuit Ingredients:
Makes: 12 biscuits

+2 cups Bisquick mix (Matt didn't tell me we were out of Bisquick so I used buttermilk pancake mix haha, turned out fine!)
+1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (MORE)
+2/3 cup milk
+1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
+1/2 teaspoon parsley
+1/4 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Mix bisquick mix, milk, and cheese until moist **I added 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of dried parsley here too.
Drop onto greased cookie sheet
Bake for 8 minutes or until golden
Melt butter, then mix in parsley and garlic powder.
Pour melted butter over hot biscuits, then serve!
