Simple Southern-Style "Unfried" Chicken

This recipe is from Kraft Recipes. This was under Healthy Living. It was soooo yummy! I want to double the recipe next time so I can put on a salad. My son and I are not big fans of Ranch dressing, so I used Light Creamy Caesar Dressing instead. I would think Creamy Italian would work too. I will definitely make this one again and again...

Simple Southern-Style "Unfried" Chicken

1 broiler-fryer chicken (3 1/4 lbs), cut up (I used chicken breasts)
1/2 cup Kraft Light Ranch Dressing (I used Light Caesar)
1 pkt Shake 'n Bake Extra Crispy Seasoned Coating Mix

Remove skin from all chicken pieces except wings (unless you use boneless, skinless like me). Place chicken in large resealable plastic bag. Add dressing. Seal bag; turn to evenly coat chicken with dressing. Refrigerate 30 minutes to marinade.

Heat oven to 400 degrees (I did 350). Place coating mix in pie plate or shallow dish. Dip chicken in coating mix, turning to evenly coat both sides of each piece. Place in single layer on baking sheet. Sprinkle with any remaining coating mix. Discard bag and marinade.

Bake 40-45 minutes or until chicken is done. (I did about 25 minutes).
