skinless, boneless chicken breasts
Italian-style salad dressing
seasoned dry bread crumbs
Great, easy, yummy recipe, Angela! Thank you.
For those complaining about it not being crispy enough, there are lots of basic tutorials on this site. The basic idea is this: lower temp, more time, less browning, versus higher temp, less time, more browning. This is why we broil quickly and braise slowly, and why there are lots of temperatures on our ovens.
So, in short, if you see this recipe, read the reviews, and decide you want it crispier -- boost the temp to 400 and shorten the cooking time by 5 or ten minutes. Or, boost to 425, do for 20 minutes total, and turn halfway through.
I just hate to see a great recipe get "dinged" because people don't read reviews or know how to make some simple changes to suit their tastes. ;)
needs improvement. i tried as others suggested to cook the chicken at a higher temp for a shorter time and it was bordering on slimy. other than the time i followed the recipe exactly
I used ranch dressing rather than italian and used garlic and herb bread crumbs. The chicken tasted wonderful and was very moist and tender--no knife required!
Very good and super easy!! My husband loved it but I did make some adjustments to the recipe (some similar to previous posts):
1)Marinated the chicken breasts in Newman's Own Italian salad dressing for 3 hours 2) Added parmesan cheese and garlic salt to the bread crumbs and 1 cup was plenty 3) Drizzled a little melted butter on chicken in hopes of browning but ended turning up the heat to 400 towards the end because it wasn't browned 4)Added a slice of muenster cheese on top of each breast the last 5 minutes. I served this with broccoli and herb noodles and it was a very filling and great meal!
My family has been using a similar recipe for years. This is one of our favorite dinners. I marinate the chicken in the salad dressing for a couple of hours to get the most flavor. I also sometimes mix some melted butter into the breadcrumbs. This helps the crumbs stick to the chicken better and also makes it slightly crispier.
WOW!!! What a great recipe. The chicken came out very moist and tender. The flavor was incredible. I made this 2 days in a row last week and plan on making it again tonight! The flavor combinations are endless. I used light Italian dressing the first night & the second night I used honey mustard. I added herbs & parmesan cheese to my seasoned breadcrumbs. Tonight I plan on using an oriental dressing. I cooked mine for 25 minutes at 350 degrees (turned once) and broiled the last couple of minutes to crisp up the top. Thank You!
Great, easy recipe! I served it with a side of pasta and marinara, and some steamed veggies. Thanks for the recipe!
This was very good. Tasty but not overpowering. Used low fat Italian. Will make again!
