Updated May 21, 2015

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Italian dressing
  • 1 cup Alfredo pasta sauce (from 15-oz jar)

Steps

  • 1
    Pound chicken breasts smooth side down, gently between pieces of plastic wrap, with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until 1/2 inch thick.
  • 2
    In 12-inch skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken to skillet; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook chicken 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.
  • 3
    In small bowl, mix dressing and Alfredo sauce until smooth.
  • 4
    Pour sauce over chicken in skillet. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover; simmer 8 to 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center.

  • Great with penne pasta or other favorite pasta.
  • Pounding the chicken makes the chicken cook evenly. If you don’t pound it, add 5 to 7 minutes of cooking time to make sure the chicken is cooked through--until juice of chicken is clear (at least 165°F).
