These tasty family friendly Garlic Knots are yeast rolls with garlic butter made easy with six ingredients in less than thirty minutes. This simple recipe calls for pre-made pizza dough which I pick up at one of my favorite local grocery stores however both canned and homemade work well. You can even use canned biscuits. I love to serve these tasty nuggets with Easy Baked Spaghetti and Three Cheese Stuffed Manicotti.

How To Make italian chicken

  • 1
    Place the chicken on a cutting board and cover it with plastic wrap. Pound it to about 1/2 inch thick using a meat mallet.
  • 2
    Place the chicken in a bowl and pour the Italian dressing over it. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it marinate for 30-60 minutes. If marinating longer place the bowl in the refrigerator.

    Arrange the vegetables around the chicken breasts on the baking sheet. Sprinkle the chicken and veggies with salt or seasoned salt and freshly ground black pepper.
