How to Bake Chicken Strips in Italian Dressing

Chicken nuggets are a family favorite in many homes, but most versions are high in saturated fat. Making your own version of chicken nuggets using Italian dressing is a lower-fat way to serve chicken. Italian dressing can also tenderize the chicken and add some juiciness as well. Served with baked potatoes and steamed broccoli, your version of baked chicken may soon become a new family favorite.

Step 1

Pour 3/4 of a 15-oz. bottle of Italian dressing in a large mixing bowl.

Step 2

Add 2 lbs. of chicken strips to the bowl and flip to coat well.

Step 3

Cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil.

Step 4

Allow the chicken to marinate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Step 5

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 6

Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Step 7

Transfer the chicken strips to the baking dish.

Step 8

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until cooked through and no longer pink. They are completely cooked when a meat thermometer inserted into the center of a nugget reads 170 degrees.

Step 9

Transfer the chicken strips to a serving platter, baste with the Italian dressing left in the bottle and sprinkle with coarsely ground black pepper. Serve immediately.
