4-Ingredient Crispy Green Goddess Baked Chicken Recipe Is a Keeper

Baked French chicken. Baked Caesar chicken. Crispy German chicken. Yes, I love to create easy baked chicken recipes. Salad dressing is one of my favorite store-bought ingredients to use when baking chicken. It's already prepared and packs a lot of flavor – and there are so many different kinds to pick from. This new chicken creation uses Green Goddess salad dressing.

The dried parsley flakes and lemon zest are optional. I tend to use parsley flakes in a lot of my recipes and it's mainly for color. But I loved the fresh twang the lemon zest gave the chicken, so I recommend adding it. Serve this easy chicken recipe with your favorite side dishes. I went with broccoli and quinoa.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes (approximately) 
Total Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 4


Here's how to make it: 

  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper (I used Morton Nature's Seasons). Add the chicken pieces, skin side down, and cook until golden brown and crispy, about 4 to 5 minutes. Flip them over and cook about 1 more minute.
  2. Put the chicken into a baking dish.
  3. Pour the salad dressing around the chicken pieces. Sprinkle with parsley flakes, if using. Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven for about 30 minutes or until almost cooked through.
  4. Sprinkle with the lemon zest and fresh herbs. Continue cooking about 5 more minutes or until internal temperature is 165 degrees F.
  5. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and serve.
