This recipe was given to me by my father-in-law, who owns a machine shop. It is the family's traditional birthday party dinner. This chicken is truly mouth-watering and goes perfectly with a tomato/brie bowtie pasta.

Delicious! I used skinless, boneless chicken breasts marinated overnight. Baked the chicken for 30 minutes and reduced the marinade on the stovetop. I added a tablespoon of brown sugar and a teaspoon of lemon juice to it, thickened it with cornstarch and WOW! Awesome over rice!!!!


This chicken turned out wonderfully. We really enjoyed it. I would agree with the reviewer who said that 16 oz. of dressing and 16 oz. of salsa is way too much (resulted in a lot of waste; try it w/ 8 oz of each first and then add more if you need to) and I would also agree with the person that said this takes a lot longer than 20 minutes to cook. I would say it took closer to 50 minutes.

i was a little nervous when i decided to make this,I wasnt sure how well salsa and Italian dressing would go together but i had to give it a try and it was sooo good. My whole family loved it. Thanks!!!!Update: I took Jannets advise and used the marinade to top the rice. Put the brown sugar, lemon juice and cornstarch in. Now im addicted!!
