CHICKEN SURPRISE # 1 ~ Quick & Easy Chicken Recipes

Go to Costco and get one of those big bags of Chicken (breasts, thighs, drumsticks - whatever floats your boat.) This will stock you up for a few dinners depending on your family size. If you don't have a Costco membership, get one! Buying in bulk can usually reduce the cost. Or search for a great chicken sale in your grocery store and stock up. 

Spray baking pan with Pam or generic equivalent. I use store brand cooking spray because it's cheaper and works just as good. (Save the money for wine.) 

Arrange chicken in pan. 

Check out the selection of salad dressing in your fridge. Italian dressing works best, but Ranch or Caesar can  add an interesting flavor to the dish. 

Spread dressing over chicken. You can either use a spoon to smoosh it around or put the dressing and chicken in a Ziplock bag and give it a shake to cover. 

Take bread crumbs, I use 4 Seasons Gluten free Italian. Shake them over the tops of the chicken in the pan. 

Take your cooking spray and spray the bread crumbs (that you placed on the chicken.) Just a light coat so they look a little wet. 

Bake. 400 degrees for 30 to 45 mins. Stick a fork in one piece and give a little twist. The meat should break a little and then it's done. Okay, I'm not sure if that's Alton Brown's technique but it works for me. :) 

Sit back, pour the wine and put your feet up. You worked hard, rest.
