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


  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3-1/2 to 4 pounds), cut up
  • 1 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 1-1/4 cups crushed cornflakes


  1. Place chicken in a large resealable plastic bag or shallow glass container; add salad dressing. Seal or cover and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Drain and discard marinade.
  2. Coat chicken with cornflakes; place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour or until juices run clear.
