Recipe Swap

Gayle from the Grocery Cart Challenge is doing a recipe swap today. It is suppose to be frugal recipes. I am going to share mine here and if you want to see others just go to her blog and check out everyone else who participated.

Even if it is not Friday any more and you can't add your name to her list (I am doing mine a little late!), if you have a recipe that you would like to share feel free to comment on this blog to let everyone know you have one so we can see it!

This is considered a frugal recipe to me because I almost always have all the ingredients in my house anyway. I got this recipe from the Kraft Foods magazine.

Saucy Parmesan Chicken

4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1/4 cup Italian Dressing
1/4 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese

Place all ingredients in a large resealable freezer weight plastic bag; seal bag. Turn bag over several times to evenly coat chicken with remaining ingredients. Lay flat so chicken does not overlap.

Refrigerate chicken 30 minutes to marinate. Preheat oven to 425. Remove chicken from marinade; discard bag and marinade. Arrange chicken on foil-covered baking sheet. Bake chicken 20 minutes or until cooked thru.

Now, here is my little spin....
I get my chicken out before I go to work and by the time I get back it is thawed. I then marinade the chicken for a few minutes (with maybe a little more of the ingredients than it calls for), put the chicken on the pan and then pour the rest of the marinade out of the bag onto the tops of the chicken.

It seems so simple but every time we do it, either Chris or I or both of us comment on how great the chicken tastes!
