Sweet Italian Chicken- Freezer Recipe

It seems like I always have Italian Dressing in the house.  When it gets down to a stockpile price, usually around 25¢ to 50¢ per bottle, I make sure to stock up. This is a recipe I created because I realized some of my stockpile was going to expire soon.


Sweet Italian Chicken- Freezer Recipe
Prep time: 
Total time: 
  • Chicken Legs, Thighs, or Breasts (Bone In or Boneless)
  • ¾ Cup Italian Dressing
  • ½ Cup Brown Sugar
  1. Mix together the Italian Dressing and Brown Sugar.
  2. Pour over chicken marinade at least 30 minutes. If you are doing this for a freezer recipe, just place marinade in bag with chicken and you are done until you take it out to defrost.
  3. Bake chicken at 350 degrees for about 30-45 minutes, or until juices run clear.

    I wouldn’t have ever thought to pair Italian dressing with brown sugar. I’m interested to see how this would taste.
