If anyone were to ever ask me what my go-to recipe is, I am positive this would be it. It seriously is about as hard to make as Ramen Noodle soup, but it is infinitely better.
The best part though, is that you can make it for a crowd, and no one will know how much effort you didn’t put into it. Seriously. It is my go-to recipe because it is so easy and I get asked for the recipe every. single. time. (Half the time I never give it out though because I’m too embarrassed…I guess the secret is out of the bag now!)
So, if you have company coming over, toss it in the oven (after your 5 minutes of prep work) hide your bottle of dressing deep within the garbage can, and allow the delicious aroma to begin filling the air. Meanwhile, whip on your apron, pull out as many spices as you can from your cabinet, and spread them all over your counter. Begin cleaning them up with a sweat just as your guests arrive, and you’ll have them fooled!
Ridiculously Easy Creamy Italian Chicken
6-8 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
16 oz. bottle Creamy Italian Dressing
1. Cut the chicken into bite size pieces. Place into a 9×13 baking dish.
2. Pour bottle of dressing over chicken. Stir to coat each piece of chicken in dressing before baking.
3. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until bubbly and lightly browned.
*You can easily cut this recipe in half, or make it according to the proportions you would like! Use as much or as little dressing as you desire, it simply depends on how much sauce you like it.
**Sometimes it is hard to find Creamy Italian dressing. Make sure it is Creamy Italian, not just Italian. (I shop at Smith’s and can find it there. I have also seen it at Wal-Mart in the past.)
