    It was a greasy, horrible mess. Maybe I did something wrong.

    For the ease I give this 4 stars. Definitely if you need soft cooked chicken without work use this recipe. It doesn't smell very good cooking though (probably because of the vinegar). I'd use a whole chicken, leaving the skin on. I used the chicken in easy chicken wraps made with mayo, lettuce, tomato and and more italian dressing! They were fast and tasty.

    I needed some cooked, shredded chicken for Recipe #161871. This recipe went together so easily and quickly, I could make it before I went out the door first thing in the morning. I did brown the chicken, I already had a pan out, and finished by baking in my "toaster" oven. I used a bottled light- garlic dressing that produced a extremely tender chicken. I used only 1/2 cup, because I was only baking chicken legs and thighs. Talk about fall off the bone! I was able to shred easily, and it was ready to go. Thanks, Denise!

    This is fantastic! So moist and flavorful, and fall off the bone tender! I have to admit tho, never having cut up a chicken before, I left it whole and poured the dressing over it, covered and baked as directed without turning it. I used Kraft Free Zesty Italian and about 3/4 of the bottle knowing the chicken would produce a lot of juice on its own. Thank you for sharing a super easy and delicious chicken recipe I'll definitely be making again! :)
