Tomato Baked Chicken from Mostly Homemade Mom

Here is the link:


Easy Tomato Baked Chicken

1 lb chicken pieces, I used thighs
3/4 cup zesty Italian dressing, divided
2 (14oz) cans diced tomatoes with garlic, basil, and oregano, drained
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
white rice (if desired)

Pour 1/4 cup dressing over chicken and place in refrigerator to marinade for at least 30 minutes. Remove chicken from marinade and place in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish (discard used marinade). In a separate bowl, combine both cans of drained tomatoes, 1/2 cup dressing, and garlic powder. Pour tomatoes over chicken. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Bake at 425 for about 40 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Serve chicken alongside rice topped with tomatoes. If using a crockpot, arrange chicken and tomato mixture the same as above and cook on low for 6 hours or high for 3 hours.

This was a big hit with my family, but next time I will use boneless & skinless chicken. Other than that, perfection! (We had it with pasta.)
