Baked Italian Parmesan Chicken

I really enjoy baked chicken recipes. They’re so easy to toss together and make life so much easier when preparing dinner. Baked Italian Parmesan Chicken is one of those super easy recipes. It uses only three ingredients. That’s right, 3! Besides the chicken, it uses grated parmesan cheese and about half a bottle of Hendrickson’s Sweet Vinegar and Olive Oil Dressing. I purchase it at Brookshire’s in the Dallas Metroplex area, but just about any Italian dressing will do.

I like the Hendrickson’s because it’s made with more wholesome ingredients and doesn’t use the bad oils of most salad dressings. I had several jars of it after moving and decided it was time to clear out my pantry a little and use some with this recipe.

I marinated the chicken in the salad dressing, then sprinkled it with Parmesan cheese before baking. Because Hendrickson’s is a little on the sweet side, you’ll have to use plenty of Parmesan Cheese to counter some of the sweetness. That’s easily done by sprinkling the cheese over top of the chicken while baking. Then turn the chicken half way through cooking time and generously sprinkle that side with more cheese. If you can’t find Hendrickson’s, a zesty, flavorful Italian dressing is your best option.

Because I was baking the chicken in the oven, it was simple enough to toss some veggies into a casserole dish and squirt them with a little olive oil and sprinkle with herbs. That way dinner was all done about the same time. It was healthy, hearty, gluten free and quite satisfying.

Baked Italian Parmesan Chicken is an easy dinner entree for weeknight dinners even if you don’t have time to marinate the chicken. And the taste? Superb. 🙂

Place boneless chicken breasts into a large zip lock back. Add about a half bottle of the salad dressing. Zip the top and shake slightly to get the dressing to cover all of the chicken. Refrigerate and marinate 30 minutes to a couple of hours.

    With the rise of the foodie culture, it’s no surprise that we’re seeing more and more recipes focusing on ingredients like Parmesan cheese. And while it’s true that Parmesan is a popular ingredient in many cuisines, it’s also believed to have health benefits including reducing blood pressure, increasing bone density and maintaining healthy cholesterol levels.
