I can assure that the cooking I did for this post was a lot better than my photography! 😉 I need help photographing food. Any suggestions?
Anyhow, Yum! This recipe is in one of my favorite cookbooks Don’t Panic–More Dinner’s in the Freezer: A Second Helping of Tasty Meals You Can Make Ahead. I really like this cookbook not only because there are very tasty recipes included in it, but it also calculates the amounts necessary if you were to make the recipe time x3, x6, or x9 for freezer meals. My basic math skills aren’t too shabby, but sometimes trying to figure out what 1 3/4 x 5 is gives me a headache… 😉
Anyway, here’s the recipe:
- 6 bonesless, skinless chicken breasts (I actually had thighs fillets to use and they were tasty, too!)
- 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
- 1 envelope Italian salad dressing mix (I used 1 1/2 tbs Italian seasoning instead)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup olive oil
All you do is simply mix together the cheese, garlic, seasonings in a bowl. Put the olive oil in another bowl. Dip the chicken in the oil, then coat with seasoning. If you want to freeze them, wrap each chicken piece individually in plastic wrap, then place in a freezer bag.
Bake at 400 degrees for 45-60 minutes for chicken breasts (or ~ 30 min for smaller thighs) until the chicken is tender and no longer pink.
Enjoy! What’s your favorite way to cook chicken?
