skinless, boneless chicken breasts
Italian-style salad dressing
Italian-style dried bread crumbs
I only used about 1 cup of dressing. Just enough to cover the chicken. I tossed the marinated chicken in the bread crumbs in a gallon sized ziploc bag and placed back into pan. You don't want too much italian dressing on the bottom of the pan at this point or it will turn out too mushy. At end of cooking time I removed foil, topped with shredded parmesan and turned the oven to broil just for a few minutes till nicely browned. I think this gave it a nice touch. Very tasty and moist chicken. Good to serve with a pasta side dish.
Very quick and easy. I would use less dressing. One cup is probably enough for next time.
This is good. The chicken is tender and tasty. I added a little melted butter on top of the bread crumbs to help it get crispy.
This was very good! I felt weird about cooking the chicken in the same marinade so I discarded the marinade and left a little just to coat the bottom of the pan. The results were perfect. I just added about another 20 minutes to the cooking and WALA! sumptuous, tender chicken!
There is no way the chicken WON'T be soggy. I loved the idea, though, and thought the flavor would be there. I marinated the bird bits in a baggie w/ the dressing for as long as I could, then rolled in crumbs. I baked on racks on a cookie sheet so the air could move around the breasts, and they came out juicy and crispy and wonderful! The dressing I used had a touch of sweetness, I wish I'd added a little salt, pepper and red pepper to the marinade but that's not the recipes fault. With my changes we will make this over and over.
This was SO very easy and sooo good!! I didn't use 2 cups of dressing though, about 1 or so, it was VERY GOOD!! Thanks Robin!!
I thought this recipe was as simple as it gets, and my very fussy boyfriend loved it. Thanks and I highly suggest this one for on the run people.
Very tender and flavourful. I also added some italian seasoning, and some garlic powder. Instead of breading the breasts, I cut them into strips and cooked them, covered, in the marinade. Yum!
