Marinated Baked Chicken Recipe

This tender flavorful chicken is one of my mom's specialties. Soy sauce and bottled Italian dressing combine in a mouthwatering marinade that nicely complements the meat.—Cindy Kufeldt, Orlando, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Bake: 45 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1/2 cup Italian salad dressing

  • 1. In a measuring cup, combine salad dressing and soy sauce. Pour 3/4 cup into a large resealable plastic bag; add chicken. Seal the bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight, turning several times. Refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
