Italian Crusted Chicken

by Jamie Hunter

This recipe is a household favorite and is sure to please most eaters!

Serves: 2 People

Prep Time: 6 hours

- 2 Whole Chicken Breasts (fat trimmed)

- 1 Cup of fat free Italian salad dressing

- 1 Tablespoon of Italian seasoning

- 2 Cups of bread crumbs

2 Sandwich bags

Be sure to trim the fat off your chicken breasts. Tenderize your chicken breasts using a meat tenderizer until flat. Take two sandwich bags and place a chicken breast into each one. Next pour half of the salad dressing into each bag, seal with a twist tie or rubber band and place in the refrigerator for 2 or more hours. It's even better if they can soak overnight.

Now take the bread crumbs and combine them with the Italian seasoning.

Pre-heat your oven to 250 degrees.

Take out your chicken breasts and coat them with the bread crumb mixture. I use a bowl with a lid and shake them until they are evenly covered.

Place them in an oven safe pan, cover with foil then place in the oven for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes has expired remove the foil and continue to cook for an additional 30 minutes or until done. Use a meat thermometer to make sure it is thoroughly cooked. Poultry should reach an internal temperature of 180 degrees before eaten.

Serve with rice and steamed vegetables for a really healthy and tasty meal.
