I've been making this dish for years! The version I have doesn't call for onion salt or garlic salt. I just use equal parts soy sauce and Italian dressing. Easy to double or triple the recipe.

I've been making this dish since it came out in the magazine. This is a 2-3 times a month standby - simple and tasty, especially when served with Mushroom Oven Rice.

I made this for dinner using boneless/skinless chicken breasts and it was a great success with the family! The meat turned out juicy and delicious! Will be making it again.

I made this for Valentine's Day for my hubby. It was very good. Only used 3 large bone-in breasts. Used onion powder and garlic salt, low sodium soy sauce and zesty italian salad dressing. We steamed a bag of california blend veggie and added them to pan about 10 minutes before we were ready to eat. We will be making this again.

a wonderful recipe, used breast halves and whole legs, legs took a little longer. they both turned out extremely juicy and delicious, also made a pan gravy after I took out the chicken, and served on the side. loved it!

My husband does not usually like white meat requests this recipe often. It comes out so juicy and packed with flavor.

Finally! A baked chicken recipe that I am completely happy with! I omitted the garlic salt, and used boneless skinless chicken breasts, baked at 375 for 30-35 minutes. Will definitely make again!
