So, I did bad, once again. I forgot my camera to take a photo of my meal. I’m really bad at that. I have a few pieces of chicken left in the fridge, so tonight when we get ready to eat I’ll try to remember to take a photo and come add it to this post.
This is one of my favorite recipes. 1) Because I came up with it on my own, and 2) because it can be tweeked and played with to accomidate your favorite things. If you are going by the recipe that I like you will need:
*Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast [thawed completely]
*Dales Steak Marinade [or whatever is your favorite, Italian Dressing works too]
*Great Value Alfredo Sauce [Less than $2 per jar at WalMart]
Preheat your oven to 350. In a casserole dish, lay out your chicken breast. You’ll want to cut several slits in your chicken to allow the marinade to soak in. Pour your marinade on your chicken and add enough to your dish to cover the bottom. Sprinkle on your season salt. Add a relatively thin layer of Alfredo Sauce to your chicken [this layer will be thin because you will be flipping the chicken over and most of what doesn’t soak in, will fall off]. If you have a Spice Rack, you can probably find “Italian Seasoning” there; sprinkle some of this on top of your Alfredo Sauce. Place chicken in the oven for 20 minutes.
After the 20 minutes are up, you’ll want to get it out of the oven, check to see how done it is, flip it and reseason. You don’t necessarily have to add more marinade, unless it is getting low in your pan. Add more Italian Seasoning and a thicker layer of the Alfredo Sauce and cook for about 20 more minutes. When it’s finished this time, take it out, add your shredded cheese and crush some Ritz Crackers on top. Heat in the oven long enough to melt your cheese, take out and serve.
You can change and add lots of things here: You can marinate with Italian Dressing, and use whichever kind of shredded cheese is your favorite. We use Mild Cheddar, but Swiss and Mozzerella are really yummy too. This meal also works using boneless chicken tenders for a smaller portion, or if you are fixing it as an appetizer or for kids. Would love to hear from you if you try it 🙂
