Italian Chicken

Chicken marinated in Italian dressing overnight you're used to make it and the 1980s


Hello Elsa,

I’m going to translate your request as this: “Can you find the recipe for chicken marinated in Italian dressing overnight like you used to make in the 1980s.”

If the basic recipe is what you want, then it is very, very simple. You just put chicken breasts or a cut-up chicken in a baking dish, pour enough bottled Italian dressing over it to just cover it. Let it marinate from four hours to overnight. The longer you marinate it, the tangier it will be. Then pour off excess marinade and bake in a preheated 350° oven for 1 hour or until done. (some recipes say 375° for 45 minutes.) You can also saute the chicken on top of the oven. Grilling the chicken is also very popular.

That’s the basic recipe. My Mom used to make this in the 1960s. There are a lot of variations. Wine, soy sauce, barbecue sauce, garlic, and other things may be added to the Italian Dressing Marinade. Many recipes call for covering the dish with Italian bread crumbs or for coating each piece of chicken with Italian bread crumbs after marinating and before baking. I have no idea about a particular variation of this recipe that was popular in the 1980s.

See these recipes and one below for some of the variations:

Italian Marinated Chicken
Cut up chicken (enough chicken for your family)
Lg. bottle "Wishbone" Italian Dressing
Italian style bread crumbs

Marinate chicken in Wishbone Italian Dressing (preferably overnight). Take chicken out of marinate and 
completely cover with bread crumbs. Put in baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 1 1/2 hours or 
until done. This chicken is very moist with a little twang to it.
Serve with chicken flavored rice, vegetable and salad.

I'm looking for a recipe from McKenzie's Bakery for their Belgian Slices if you have one. 
My mom loved them so much and although I obviously can't buy them, I'd love to make them for her. 


Hello Lisa,

Sorry, no luck finding a recipe for this. A place called “Tastee-McKenzies” has all of McKenzies’ Bakery recipes. They might make these. They have a Facebook page at: Tastee McKenzies

I found McKenzies’ Belgian Slices described on a message board as : “a rectangle pecan ice box cookie”.

This recipe for ice box cookies was offered for the same request on a message board: Mr Lake
