* 1 lb boneless chicken breasts
* 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
* 1 envelope Italian salad dressing mix
* 2 cloves garlic, minced
* 1/2 cup olive oil
1. Preheat the oven to 400.
2.. Mix together the cheese, garlic and salad dressing mix. Dip the chicken in the olive oil and then into the cheese mixture.
3. Place the chicken on a cooling rack sprayed with cooking spray placed on a cookie sheet. Bake for 35-45 minutes until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink. Enjoy!
This was so easy to throw together, and we enjoyed it. I think you probably could dip chicken in your favorite Italian salad dressing and then into the cheese and garlic if you wanted to make it even easier. The range in cooking times is because the thickness and size of the chicken may vary.
We have a family gathering this weekend, and everyone brings a bottle of wine and their favorite cookies. The cookies can be homemade or purchased- either way is fine! I am not sure what I am bringing yet, though I am leaning toward the cookies and cream cookies - they really are amazing. I don't think I will make a new recipe for the party, but perhaps I will get some good ideas from the others that are brought!
It has been a busy week, so only one keeper this week - and it is an easy one! If you have the ingredients on hand for this, you can make this in about 3 minutes and then pop it into the oven. PArmesan garlic chicken was a hit, and although it certinaly isn't a new idea to coat chicken in a mixture and bake it, this was a little different and very tasty.
