• RECIPES • Zesty Baked Italian Chicken

September 7, 2013

My wonderful DH can be a bit of a picky eater. 

He dislikes chicken (yard bird as he calls it) with a passion, so trying to get him to eat it can be a bit of a challenge. He will eat my chicken wings, chicken alfredo every  now and then, he will eat the hell out of my white chili (which I only make once a year), and every blue moon he will eat fried chicken.
Well, the other day I had a taste for baked Italian Chicken, which we have had before ( made by someone else), DH didn't really care for it, BUT that is what I wanted, so that's what I made.
And,
you know what?
HE LOVED IT!!!!

Plus it is one of the easiest dishes to make.
I am tempted to make this in my crockpot the next time around . . . if I can fit all the chicken in there!

  2. Looks delish! I will have to try this. I often marinate chicken in zesty Italian dressing before grilling. Makes it so tender and tasty. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
