Lesley’s Easy Italian Chicken

Lesley made this recipe up when she was a student in college. It’s very easy and quick to make.

Ingredients

Thawed or Fresh Chicken Breasts (one per serving)
1 ½ cup Bottled Italian Dressing (Kraft Roasted Red Pepper is really good.)

Instructions

Place chicken breasts in a lidded frying pan. Pour dressing over. If dressing does not cover the bottom of the pan, add water until it does. Simmer over medium high heat until chicken is slightly browned on one side, and then flip it to cook the other side. Cook until chicken is no longer pink.

Number of servings varies—you can cook as many or as few chicken breasts as you want.

I actually use frozen chicken breasts. So easy.

Last night I used lemon juice instead of dressing. It used 1/3 bottle, but was really tasty.

It should be known that Scott actually invented the recipe. But let's keep the name as it is. :)

Ha--I typed this up last-minute for my nutrition class, otherwise I would have been more thorough and checked my facts. However, this recipe does sport nutrition information. *oooh, ahhh*
