3-Ingredient Baked Chicken Recipe in Red Wine Vinaigrette Is Juicy Deliciousness

Inspired by my friend Donna’s easy, delicious baked chicken recipes, I made one of my own. As a fan of red wine vinaigrette salad dressing, which has so much rich and tangy flavor, that was my starting point.

This red wine vinaigrette baked chicken recipe has just three ingredients and minimal prep. The dressing and chicken drippings create a flavorful sauce that is perfect over rice (and will make your mouth water).

The chicken turns out so juicy, you’ll wonder why you haven’t been cooking chicken this way your whole life (I know I did). Thanks, Donna!

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 40 to 45 minutes
Total Time: 45 to 50 minutes
Servings: 4 to 6


  • 6 - 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs or breasts or a combination (I used half thighs and half breasts)
  • 4 ounces red wine vinaigrette salad dressing
  • 1/4 cup red wine (optional, for added flavor)

Here's how to make it:

  1. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Pour the salad dressing into a baking dish or casserole pan. Coat the chicken in the dressing.
  2. Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven for about 40 to 45 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through (165 degrees F internal temperature).
  3. Baste with the sauce once or twice while baking.
  4. Serve the chicken over rice.

Ah, thank you, E! Love your choice of red wine vinaigrette! I've done so many. The possibilities are never-ending. Next is green goddess for me. And I saw a miso jalapeno dressing I may have to try soon. Elisa A. Schmitz 30Seconds
