fat free Italian-style dressing
My husband said that this deserves 5 stars. I was thinking more like 4.5. It was EASY to prepare. The taste was flavorful and good. I used chicken breasts and marinated them in a ziploc bag for about 5 hours before baking. I also doubled the marinade to make sure the chicken was completely covered and so that we would have plenty of sauce with the meal. I also added carrots and extra pieces of fresh garlic. I will make it again! THANKS
Needed more zest - I would try using Italian dressing labeled "Zesty". I also doubled the garlic and the rosemary. I used a large baking dish. Cooking times and quaities were right on. If you like your potatoes a little crispy try removing the foil for the last 10 minutes.
This is actually really good if you marinate the chicken in the italian dressing and add some of your own flavor to it. I added a bit of red, white and black pepper to it and it was really good.
I used chicken breasts and added more Italian dressing. Also, I only left it in for 45 minutes, otherwise it would have dried out. Excellent meal!
I give this recipe 5 stars for the flavor return on your time investment. I was looking for a recipe like the "Chicken Italian" my mom used to make. I only made a few changes: Used chicken breasts b/c that's what I had; marinated the chicken for about 30 in. in Mojo Criollo b/c my husband really enjoys the kick; and used packaged, pre-sliced potates. To save washing a bowl, I also just sprinkled the lemon, lime, and dressing over everything before covering and baking. After 45 minutes, I sprinkled shredded Italian cheese, Italian seasoning, and baked uncovered a few minutes more. Yum yum!
I'm so sorry...It smelled good while cooking, but really did not taste good. Presentation was also not so great. Yes, browning the meat may help the looks, but can't possibly help the taste that much. Chicken was bland and potatoes were just...yuck. Thanks anyway.
A really great, flavorful & easy recipe! Tastes even better the next day. I did tweak it a little bit because I had no lime & just for personal preference: didn't have any lime so I squeezed a whole small lemon into it (when finished it didn't taste lemony at all). Used a bit more than a cup of dressing based on other reviews saying it wasn't enough (I'd say 1 1/2 cups is good). I also topped it all w/some smoked paprika which was REALLY good. Next time I will cut the time down to about 45 min. as my chicken was a bit on the dry side. But the leftover dressing in the 9x13 dish helped a lot with that. This recipe is too easy & good to not be a keeper, thank you!
Used chicken breast tenders and roasted red pepper with parmesan Italian dressing. Let marinate in 1/2 sauce for 30 minutes, then covered with remainder. Also skipped lime juice because I didn't have any. I loved it on the chicken but it may have been too much for the potatoes for me and my boyfriend.
