Parmesan Garlic Chicken

A word about this recipe: What can I say? This was a phenomenally easy freezer meal to prepare and you can't miss with garlic. This was just "yum." My only "complaint" is that as we all know, if the chicken had its skin on it's always more tasty, but my current motto is...if you don't want your thighs to rub don't need the chicken skin! At least that's what I keep telling I shove another celery stalk in my mouth to avoid visiting the freezer which currently houses ice cream....



6 servings:

6 boneless chicken breasts (pound thin)
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 envelope Italian salad dressing mix packet
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ cup olive oil

18 servings:

18 boneless chicken breasts (pound thin)
3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
3 envelope Italian salad dressing mix packet
6 cloves garlic, minced
1½ cup olive oil

36 servings:

36 boneless chicken breasts (pound thin)
6 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
6 envelope Italian salad dressing mix packet
12 cloves garlic, minced
3 cup olive oil

54 servings:

54 boneless chicken breasts (pound thin)
9 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
9 envelope Italian salad dressing mix packet
18 cloves garlic, minced
4½ cup olive oil


1. Thaw completely.

2. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Unwrap desired number of chicken breasts and placed in a greased baking dish (I use olive oil spray).

3. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes until chicken is tender and no longer pink. (Check after 35 minutes so it doesn't dry out)

For Freezer Meals: Mix together cheese, garlic, and Italian dressing mix. Dip chicken breasts in olive oil, then coat with cheese mixture. Wrap each coated chicken breast individually in plastic wrap, then place in a freezer bag. Freeze, using freezer bag method. I put two pieces of chicken per bag - which would be 1 meal for Larry and I.
