How To Make Naked Chicken

This naked chicken recipe is anything but boring. Even with minimal ingredients, this pan-fried dish is oozing with flavors and is cooked in 20 minutes.

Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 12 mins
Total: 17 mins


  • 1 lb chicken tenderloins, cut into strips, boneless, skinless, or chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil, or any cooking oil
  • 2 tbsp. ranch dip mix
  • ¼ tsp. ground chipotle pepper powder, or chili powder
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper


  1. Mix the dry ingredients before mixing with the oil. Add the chicken tenderloins and seasoning blend to a resealable bag or container. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, ideally longer for more flavor.

  2. Heat a large saute pan or skillet over medium-high heat with nonstick cooking spray.

  3. Add the marinated chicken tenderloins to the hot pan and leave untouched for 4 minutes. Flip and leave untouched for another 2 minutes.
  4. Turn the heat off, cover, and leave the chicken alone (don't peek or anything) for 6 minutes. Depending on the size of the chicken tenderloins, these times may vary slightly. Make sure the juices run clear and/or use a meat thermometer to make sure the chicken reaches a safe internal temperature (165 degrees F).

  5. Remove the cooked chicken from the pan and serve with salad, on sandwiches, with veggies, or on their own with a dipping sauce.
