French Dressed Chicken

Lauren Conforti


My husband came up with this quick & simple dish. He was helping me out with dinner in a week that I was overloaded with appts, work & school. Only 2 ingredients! It can't get any easier than that. ^_^

He put this in the oven the night before, and I heated it up the next day & served it with parsley potatoes & broccoli. It was really yummy!

How to Make French Dressed Chicken


  1. Marinate chicken pieces with about 1/2 bottle (about 8 oz.) of French Dressing in a large zip lock bag.

  3. Place chicken pieces on baking pan, reserving leftover marinade.
  4. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes. Then ladle the remaining marinade over the chicken.
  5. Turn heat down to 300, and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked and the edges of the chicken begin to caramelize and get crispy.
