Gluten-Free Chicken A La Dressing & Risotto

Chicken ready to go in the oven!
One of the easiest chicken recipes ever, is using your favorite dressing as a marinade. I've fallen in love with a new dressing that we tried a few weeks ago - Roasted Red Pepper Italian Dressing.

I didn't plan ahead (story of my life), so they weren't marinaded, instead, I just poured the dressing over the pieces of chicken and baked for 30 minutes @350. And it was DELICIOUS! 

Tip:  Marinating enhances the flavor of the chicken and makes it nice and moist. With not marinating, I used the left over dressing after baking and poured over chicken, then served.

For the sides, we love having Lundberg's Risotto. Our favorite flavor is the Creamy Parmesan. Sprinkling parmesan cheese on top before serving completes this yummy side.

Then my personal favorite is roasted asparagus. Jack won't touch it, which leaves more for me! Roasting vegetables is quick, easy and delish. I place veggies on a foil lined baking sheet, salt and pepper, drizzle extra virgin olive oil and bake @375 for 15 - 20 minutes. I like my veggies crispy!

This is an easy meal - ready in 35 minutes...including prep time. :)

A labor free meal for Labor Day weekend! Rest up everyone, you deserve it!
