3-Ingredient Crispy Italian Baked Chicken

Usually the word “crispy” in a recipe means fried and fatty, but this time it couldn’t be any further from the truth! This Crispy Italian Baked Chicken is also super easy to cook and prepare- using only 3 ingredients that I always have on hand!


Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts

Italian Dressing

Instant Potato Flakes


Optional: Marinate your chicken in the Italian dressing. I usually take the chicken out of the freezer in the morning and just place it in a casserole dish filled with dressing. This way it defrosts and marinates at the same time.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat the bottom of a casserole dish with some Italian Dressing.

3. Pound your chicken until it is about 1/4 thick.

4. Dip your chicken into a bowl of Italian dressing, then roll it in a bowl of instant potato flakes. (Don’t coat your chicken with too much potatoes or it will be all you taste!) Place chicken in the casserole dish.

5. Bake for 20 minutes or until heated through.

  1. I’ve never thought to try Italian dressing! I do this using ranch, except I just spray the dish with a little oil instead of coating it with dressing, it is delicious. Italian would be awesome as well. Thank you for this!
