Gluten Free Living – 2020
Have I got a super, duper easy recipe for you today. Italian Chicken. Yes, it’s one of the easiest yet tastiest chicken entrees ever! I used a Zesty Italian salad dressing along with Parmesan cheese to make this delicious chicken dish. The chicken is marinated earlier in the day and then baked for dinner.
We had our son and his wife over for lunch back in August. I decided to serve this easy chicken recipe along with a Spicy Creamed Corn dish and fresh fruit. Everything was really delicious, yet so quick and easy for me to toss together. At the time, my husband was recovering from a stroke and I had to keep an eye on him constantly because he was a fall risk. I didn’t have time for lavish meals or anything that took very long to prepare. These two dishes fit the bill perfectly.
Italian Chicken is also gluten free if you make sure your salad dressing is gluten free. If you need a quick entree for a busy weeknight supper, this is a great option. Toss the chicken in the salad dressing marinade before going to work. Then add the parmesan cheese on top and bake as soon as you get home. You have time to help your kids with homework while the chicken is cooking. The corn recipe takes about 10 minutes and you can pull out fresh fruit and have a really simple meal ready to go in as long as it takes the chicken to cook.
Yes, Italian Chicken is a win-win no matter how you slice it. 🙂

Place chicken in a baking dish. Pour salad dressing over top of chicken and cover with plastic wrap. Marinate chicken for several hours if possible.
When ready to bake, remove from refrigerator and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 50-55 minutes or until meat is cooked and juices run clear when pierced with a knife.
Transfer chicken to a serving plate, if desired. Sprinkle with fresh, minced parsley.
