Saucy Parmesan Chicken

Sharing is caring!

In our house, we eat Chicken recipes more nights than anything else.  Seriously, we should have feathers. LOL!  Although, I am a big casserole kind of person, I like to break out the Saucy Parmesan Chicken every so often to spice things up and I get praised MAJORLY!  The Zesty Italian dressing gives the chicken such a moist consistency and the Parmesan gives the outer edge a nice crust and my guys just eat it up.  I made ten pieces last night and we ran out within minutes!  Thank goodness I also made a TON of potatoes to fill them up. 🙂

Saucy Parmesan Chicken

We like to serve this chicken dish with Onion Mashed Potato Casserole and green beans.  The marinade and drippings go great over these potatoes!  After eating, we scrape the remaining marinade into the left-over soup container to add some zesty to our next pot of soup!

The Zesty Italian dressing gives the chicken such a moist consistency and the Parmesan gives the outer edge a nice crust!


  • 4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves 1 lb
  • ¼ cup Light Zesty Italian Dressing
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 T Minced Garlic

  • Salt pepper


    Place all ingredients, except cheese, in a large resealable bag; seal bag. Turn over several times to evenly coat chicken with dressing.

    Refrigerate 30 min to marinate, laying bag flat so chicken pieces do not overlap in bag.

    Remove chicken & marinade from bag. Arrange Chicken in baking dish, cover with Parmesan.

    Bake 35 minutes, or until cooked through

I'll bet this is good. I never would have thought to use the Italian dressing as a marinade. Thanks for the idea. :)
