I got tired of making BBQ chicken for the kids because it seemed that was the only way they would eat it! So having long loved this chicken, I thought I would pull a fast one on them. It's now their new request and I can enjoy some goodness at the table too!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 lbs boneless chicken fillets
  • 16 ounces Italian salad dressing
  • 4 -6 cups fine Italian style breadcrumbs
  • 3 -4 eggs, beaten for dipping
  • season salt
  • salt and pepper
  • flour, for lightly coating

Directions

  1. Pound fillets to tenderize and place in gallon Ziploc and pour dressing over.
  2. Give a few tosses to coat and refrigerate a few hours.
  3. Marinating while you're at work is fine.
  4. Dip marinated fillets in egg, then crumbs, lightly flour, then back into crumbs again.
  5. Put into baking dish and sprinkle with seasonings to taste.
  6. Bake at 350°F until no pink shows.
  7. I cut one to see if its done in the center.
  8. That's usually the largest piece.
  9. Flip once in the middle of baking to give an even golden brown. (Sorry my camera is broken I don't have a photo!)
  10. I like to serve with the children's favorites Mac n Cheese, oven baked beans, and of course BBQ sauce for chicken dippin'. I like to dip my chicken in homemade garden stewed tomatoes pipin' hot. Yummmm.
