Thaw them out, take the skin off and pat them down in flour. Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking dish (so the chicken won’t stick) and place the chicken breasts in the dish. The second part is even easier than the first part…pour a bottle of Italian salad dressing over the chicken. Cover the dish with foil and bake it in the oven at 350° for about one hour. Uncover chicken and place back in oven. Cook a little bit longer to brown the chicken or until the juices run clear. Supper’s ready. Not bad for a home-cooked meal even the kids will like.

Here are five great reasons to use quick and easy cookbooks to make your life better. Meals are more nutritious, have less fat and fewer calories than fast foods. Sure, it’s easy to go through the drive-in window and order, but think about what you are eating. French fries and hamburgers can’t hold a candle to baked chicken, some vegetables and salad or fruit. Family meals are quality times, opportunities for parents and kids to tune in to each other. Learn what the kids are doing, what they are thinking. Let them know a little about what it takes to make the house work and the value of money. Use the time to share information that is important and never bring up critical topics that may lead to heated, argumentative discussions. Family meals are more economical than eating out. I don’t know about you, but my budget is tight. Family meals and quick and easy cookbooks make my budget go a long way. Catch the sales. Buy generic or store brands and watch the fruit and vegetable specials and catch them before they are pulled off the shelves. Kids learn how to eat right when they eat at home. Kids mimic the eating habits of parents, so pay attention to what you are teaching them by your example. What you eat today will affect your children for the rest of their lives and that is a monumental responsibility. Home becomes a safer and more secure place when kids can depend on regular meals at home. They learn how to be consistent and dependable. Kids see parents making mealtime important and they feel special. When you eat together, you learn the good parts of togetherness. Use quick and easy cookbooks to make your life easier and better.
