Simple Baked Chicken Recipe

I was surprised when my sister-in-law told me she used just three simple ingredients to bake this tender, flavorful chicken. The pretty, crispy coating seals in the juices to keep the chicken moist and delicious. —Susan Adair, Somerset, Kentucky

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 23, 2012

Used boneless/skinless chicken breasts for this, baked for about 45 minutes. Didn't have enough Italian dressing, so I added some Ceasar and a little French to use up the bottles. These were really liked by husband and two boys! Served with pasta salad and jello.

This is our new chicken recipe, I agree it is very good. I too used prepackaged chicken coating.

MY REVIEW

I made this easy baked chicken today, with a couple of changes. I used skinless boneless chicken breasts, and prepackaged chicken coating. I added some minced onion and seasonings to the marinade. And, I marinated the chicken overnight.

My husband has been raving about the great taste. I can't believe how much he like it. And it is so easy to make.

MY REVIEW

My husbnd and I just love chicken prepared this way. While in hospital having had surgery,I was surprised to learn my husband made this for himself - I was so proud of him, that now whenever we want it, which is often, he makes it!
