This is "Cooking With Chopin", not "Cooking with War and Peace."
To redeem myself, I am posting this easy-peasy chicken recipe.
It has two ingredients and requires a Ziplock bag.
If you can unscrew a bottle of salad dressing and turn on your oven, you can make this chicken.
You can use any cut of chicken you prefer.
It also works well with beef for kabobs.
The longer the meat marinates, the better.
(But sometimes I forget to do it ahead of time and it only marinates for 30 minutes.)
It's still tasty.
And the house smells terrific when it's baking.
1/2 bottle Italian Dressing (or your favorite non-cream-based dressing)
6 chicken legs (or any cut you have on hand)
1-gallon "zip-close" plastic bag
Place the meat in the plastic bag. Add just enough dressing to cover the meat. Refrigerate overnight for best flavor. Set the plastic bag inside a large bowl in the fridge...just in case it springs a leak.
Crank up the oven to 350 degrees.
Line a baking dish with parchment paper.
Arrange chicken on paper; discard remaining marinade.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, until juices run clear.
