Easy Bake Chicken



This is quick and simple recipe with little effort and lots of flavor. Enjoyed by all who were around the table.

  • 1 package of dry Italian Dressing seasoning mix. 
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar
  • 3 pounds of boneless chicken breast or thighs (about 16 pieces of boneless thighs or 8 pieces of chicken breast.
  1. Combine the dry dressing and brown sugar.
  2. Dip the chicken into the dry seasoning and place on foil lined and greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining seasoning mixture.
  3. Bake at 350 F for 40 minutes.
  4. The chicken makes its own sauce that you can drizzle over rice. I served this with basmati rice and tossed salad.

  1. Sounds good but what is "baked brown sugar"?

    1. I corrected the baked brown sugar. It doesn't have to be packed at all. You can even use less if desired.

  2. I was wondering the same - and do you add it to the seasoning?

    1. I would try one of the following:
      Mrs. Dash - might have an italian blend seasoning. Pampered Chef or Epicure might have something that would work as well.

    2. Anonymous, you can buy the dry Italian Dressing in any Dressing Isle in almost any large chain grocery store. I usually find it on the top shelf with the other dry dressing mixes.

  5. Why add more chemical to your food? The seasoning mix is probably full of MSG and salt. Try adding dry herbs and control your own salt amount.
