It really doesn't get any easier than this. Flavor can be changed up by changing the salad dressing. (Not sure of the source of this one, but I love the simplicity.)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 chicken legs, and thigh quarters skinned
  • 1 (8 ounce) bottle Italian salad dressing


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Place chicken in a baking dish.
  3. Pour Italian dressing over chicken.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes.
  5. Turn chicken over and bake another 30 minutes or until done, basting with dressing if desired.

This was ok for us. It didn't permeate the chicken so I guess you need to marinate beforehand.

I do this all the time with bone in chicken breasts. I marinate them overnight though for more flavor. My husband loves it and so do the kids.
