  • Pour the dressing into a large skillet over medium heat, and bring to a boil. Lay the chicken pieces into the dressing, and cook until the dressing reduces and the chicken is lightly browned, about 10 minutes per side.

  • Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil; place the chicken breasts onto the foil-lined sheet. Place a generous layer of roasted red peppers on each chicken breast; top with a slice of cheese. Broil the chicken until the cheese is browned and bubbling, 1 to 2 minutes.

We really enjoyed this; it was easy to make as well with common ingredients. I used the Italian Dressing Mix recipe by Debby from this site. I only had shredded mozzerella on hand so that is what I used. I would suggest using sliced but the shredded worked in a pinch it just wasn't as "thick" as I would have liked it. Thanks Darla for a new chicken recipe that I will definitely make again (perhaps on the grill come summertime)! Read More

Followed the directions but it had a very vinegary taste to it. Maybe it was the dressing (paul newman's italian) I used but it really wasn't very good. Read More

I make a similar recipe but with spinach and everyone loves it. I marinate the chicken in robust italian dressing. Fry in pan then put the roasted red peppers cooked spinach and moz cheese on top. Cover in pan until cheese melts. Quick and delicious! Read More

I'm giving this recipe five stars because I think it would be heavenly if not for my mistake. Make sure you get roasted red peppers in water NOT in brine. Way to salty and vinegary for my taste when combined with the Italian dressing. Read More

Thanks for a great recipe Darla! My husband and I both enjoyed it very much. It was simple and fun to make. For the marinade I used bottled Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing. It worked so well that I plan to use it again next time because of the intense flavor. I wish I could give your recipe more stars as it truly was delicious and easy to prepare. Again thanks a bunch!

Good quick recipe. It also works without marinating the chicken if you use thin sliced chicken breasts and monterrey jack colby or cheddar cheese. Read More

I make a similar recipe I made up myself. I do not use dressing. I pan fry chicken tenders in olive oil with Cavender's greek seasoning on them in a cast iron skillet. When done I add one jar of roasted red peppers (in water) half a package of grape tomatoes cut in half and mozzarella cheese all over the top. Place cast iron skillet in the broiler and broil until all is cooked through and cheese is golden brown. Awesome. Read More
