Easy Baked Chicken Recipe

April 25, 2018

I love making chicken cutlets for dinner and making simple meals during the week.  I have this super easy baked chicken recipe to share with you.

In my family we love how delicious this baked chicken tastes and this recipe is so simple.  Marinating the chicken is what makes this chicken dish taste so good.

I usually buy my organic chicken from Costco.  The chicken comes in about three packages and the other two packages I usually freeze for another time.

The cutlets are marinated and then coated in seasoned bread crumbs.  I usually use Ken's Steak House Italian with Extra Virgin Olive Oil Dressing & Marinade.  When I use bread crumbs I like to use 4C Seasoned Bread Crumbs.

This dish is so easy to assemble and it only takes about a half hour to bake.  This method of cooking and baking the chicken is a lot healthier than frying them.

I usually serve this with a vegetable such as broccoli or spinach and brown rice.  We always have a salad to go along with our meal every night.

Back in March of 2015, I was invited to guest blog at Sarah's Little Kitchen.  I shared my baked chicken recipe HERE for everyone.  I did not realize that I hadn't posted this recipe on my blog!  So I hope you all enjoy this chicken dish as much as my family does.
