Baking - Italian <Easy Italian Chicken II>
Italian Chicken Rice
- To Marinate: Pour salad dressing into a large, resealable plastic bag. Add chicken breasts, seal bag and shake to coat. Place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour or overnight (the longer you marinate, the more taste the chicken will absorb).
- Preheat oven to 350ºF (175ºC).
- Remove chicken from bag, discard remaining marinade. Place chicken in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish and bake at 350ºF (175ºC) for 1 hour, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear. Note: Turn chicken occasionally while baking.
- Add them with Singapore’s famous Haianese chicken rice and serve mixed together. Note: Haianese chicken and Italian chicken can be chosen from either, or mixed together.
