1 tsp. salt

1/2 c. vidalia onion dressing (or other sweet dressing)

Add a little more dressing if you like, but next time, I will not do this, as it was too liquidy.  Is that a word?


Preheat oven 325.

Sprinkle with cheese.


Cook uncovered 35 – 40 minutes until internal temperature reaches 165.

This was a recipe born of ingredients on hand!  I had a little chicken, a package of chopped veggies, some dressing, and just kind of experimented throwing them together.  My inspiration was a ‘reuben chicken’ recipe in this great cookbook called “365 Make Ahead Meals” by Bruce Lubin and Jeanne Bossolina Lubin that I find many inspirations in.
