  1. Place the chicken breasts into a 1-gallon plastic zipper bag; pour in the Italian dressing. Squeeze air out of the bag, and seal. Refrigerate 4 to 6 hours to marinate.
  2. Pour the dressing into a large skillet over medium heat, and bring to a boil. Lay the chicken pieces into the dressing, and cook until the dressing reduces and the chicken is lightly browned, about 10 minutes per side.
  3. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil; place the chicken breasts onto the foil-lined sheet. Place a generous layer of roasted red peppers on each chicken breast; top with a slice of cheese. Broil the chicken until the cheese is browned and bubbling, 1 to 2 minutes.

I used Zesty Fat free Italian dressing as that was what I had on hand!! Great recipe, I have baked mine before but never tried doing it in the skillet!! Tasted wonderful!

Good quick recipe. It also works without marinating the chicken if you use thin sliced chicken breasts and monterrey jack, colby or cheddar cheese.

Very Tasty!! I needed something to go with my couscous (was trying it for the first time) and this went great.

Wow excellent! I used zesty italian dressing and shredded cheese because thats all I had but it turned out great!

I make a similar recipe I made up myself. I do not use dressing. I pan fry chicken tenders in olive oil with Cavender's greek seasoning on them in a cast iron skillet. When done I add one jar of...
