I clipped this recipe from the newspaper years ago. It is very adaptable. You can use any chicken parts you happen to have on hand & it is easy to adapt up or down depending on how much chicken is being served. Prep time does not include marinating time.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 whole chicken, cut in serving pieces
  • 14 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 4 tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • 12 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 (12 ounce) bottle Italian salad dressing


  1. Remove skin from chicken& place in a zip lock bag.
  2. Pour in salad dressing.
  3. Marinate one hour to overnight.
  4. Combine dry ingredients& place on a sheet of waxed paper.
  5. Drain chicken& roll in crumb mixture to coat.
  6. Place in shallow baking pan& cook@ 350 degrees for 45 minute to one hour.

I have made this recipe for years! I love it. Usually, I make it with boneless skinless chicken thighs. At times I have run out of dressing to maritnate it so I just dipped the chicken in egg then rolled it in the dry ingredients. Yummy!!! Thanks for posting the recipe!

Pick Your Chef Nov. "2004" I made this two times. The first I made it with chicken breast and I mess it up by putting to many brest in a small pan. Well they did not bake right water build up messed it up. The next time I used Thighs. Used a foil lined cookie pan. Added a bit of garlic pepper and salt. Really good taste. Thank You
