Tasty Italian Chicken Recipe

Tasty Italian Chicken Recipe

"I put together this recipe while going to college," recalls Anita Keppinger of Philomath, Oregon. "To save time later, I place the thawed chicken and salad dressing in the pan in the morning, cover it and refrigerated it until I get home. When it's time to cook dinner, I simply sprinkle it with the cheese and bake."
