Here is the delicious recipe:
3-Ingredient Crispy Italian Baked Chicken
- Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
- Italian Dressing
- Instant Potato Flakes
- fresh parsley flakes, optional
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.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat the bottom of a casserole dish with some Italian Dressing.
- Pound your chicken until it is about 1/4 thick.
- 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.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until heated through.
- Remove from over and sprinkle with fresh parsley flakes, optional.
Serve with a side of mashed potatoes and a fresh garden salad and you’ve got yourself a hassle-free, delicious meal! Enjoy!!
