Tip

If you're pressed for time, use sliced chicken deli meat or leftover rotisserie chicken. You can also replace the mayonnaise and dry dressing mix with bottled ranch dressing and garlic powder.

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Set aside 1 teaspoon of dry ranch dressing mix (or garlic powder). In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise and 4 teaspoons of the dressing mix. Taste and add more if necessary.
