"And this baked chicken parmesan without breading, without frying, seems to check off all my boxes. First, you marinate the chicken in Italian salad dressing and ranching dressing with fresh garlic overnight to give your chicken some amazing flavor to start. When ready to cook, make a cheese mixture by combining shredded parmesan cheese and dried herbs instead of breadcrumbs. Coat the marinated chicken and place it into a large baking dish sprayed with olive oil cooking spray in a single layer. Then bake for 20 minutes."

NotesFor a gluten-free version, pay attention to the Italian salad dressing and ranch dressing. Choose ones that do not contain gluten.

Serves6 People

Preparation Time12 hr

Cooking Time30 min


  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 (16 ounce) bottle light Italian dressing
  • 1/2 cup light ranch salad dressing
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5 tablespoons minced garlic, divided
  • 2 1/4 cups shredded parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 3 tablespoons dried basil, divided
  • 3 tablespoons dried oregano, divided
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  1. Combine Italian dressing, ranch dressing, 3 tablespoons minced garlic and olive oil in a large Ziploc bag. Squish the bag around to combine all ingredients. Add chicken breasts to the bag, close and squish until they are well coated in the dressing mixture. Place it in the refrigerate to marinate overnight.

  2. When ready to cook, Preheat oven to 400°F. In a shallow bowl, mix 2 cups parmesan cheese, with parsley, 1 1/2 tablespoons of the basil and oregano (each).

  3. Spray a large baking dish with olive oil cooking spray. Use tongs, remove chicken from the bag one by one and dig in the cheese and spice mixture, until thoroughly coated in cheese mixture. Then place chicken in a single layer in the dish.

  4. Insert the baking dish in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.

  5. In the meantime, let's make the sauce.

  6. In a medium nonstick saucepan, spray with olive oil cooking spray (or use 1 tablespoon olive oil). Over medium-high heat, sauté onions and remaining garlic until tender and onions are translucent.

What a healthy dish and a great serving size since I have a family of five that always want something hearty. I can see making this and serving it with the broccoli or sauteed veggies and brown rice. You could also add a whole wheat roll for those who can tolerate gluten.

This recipe looks simple yet delicious. We have tried several new chicken recipes recently, but most of them have been sweet. I love that this recipe is savory and uses Parmesan cheese. It will be a nice dish to compliment our menu and broaden our choices for dinner. Thanks for the addition!
