Instructions
  1. First thing with the cheese, place that in the freezer for 1-2 hours. Feel free to a bit more if you like.
  2. When you are ready to start, and the cheese is good and firm, in a mixing bowl, combine the mayo and whipping cream.
  3. Finely grate the cheese, the finer the cheese, the flavor develops more. If desired, reserve some of the cheese to crumble in to make a chunky dressing.
  4. Add the cheese to the milk and cream mixture, then mix in the remaining ingredients. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  5. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours before use. The longer is chills, the better the flavors blend together.

  1. Preheat your oven to 190 C, lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish with butter.
  2. Sprinkle the meat on both sides with black pepper and some of the Parmesan cheese, do not use any salt. Place the chicken in the baking dish.
  3. Pour 1/4 cup of salad dressing over each piece, then sprinkle remaining Parmesan on each one. Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes or until juices run clear.
  4. Change the oven to broil and continue to cook the chicken for 2-4 minutes or until the chicken is nice and golden colored. Remove from the oven and cover with foil and let rest for 5 minutes.

Instructions
  1. For the chicken, use thighs then most of the pieces are uniform in size, if you use legs and thighs, you will need to check the grill more often. Go with quarters then separate the thighs, keep the legs for another recipe, this will give you bigger thighs.
  2. Season chicken as you desire, salt and pepper, with a rub, etc. Marinate in Ranch Dressing for 4-5 hours in the fridge.
  3. Light your grill, if using gas, go for about 180 C, if using charcoal, go for a medium hot burn but once the coals are hot, move the coals to one side of the grill. Prep your grill with some olive oil on the grill, place chicken on the grill on the indirect heat side, the side with no coals or flame under it, close the lid for 30-40 minutes. Check at 30 minutes and continue cooking if not done. Serve with a side such as potato salad and corn on the cob.
Recipe Notes

Chicken quarters run about 60 Baht/kilo, 6 to 8 quarters will be about a kilo. The Ranch Dressing can be pricey as in import item, go with a shortcut to reduce that cost to about 1/4 of what the import is, or less. Well under $1 per meal per person, including fresh corn on the cob and potato salad.
