From Frozen to table in 20 minutes! This easy Italian Baked Chicken is made from 5 ingredients and frozen chicken! No need to thaw!
What is for dinner tonight? A common question asked every day in almost every household! And some days I’m just not in the mood for making a big meal. Sometimes I just want an easy recipe that takes very little time! But I don’t want to sacrifice nutrition or flavor! So I turn to our easy 5 ingredients Italian baked chicken recipe!
It is perfect for those nights when you have very little time to make dinner; or when you forget to take the meat out of the freezer. Plus it is a big hit with the husband and the children; allowing for great flavor!
But it is still made from natural and healthy ingredients to keep everybody healthy! It is also diabetic friendly, weight loss friendly, and kid friendly.
And best of all our Italian baked chicken only requires five simple ingredients. These are simple items that are common staples in our kitchen. I don’t have to go on a special shopping trip for this dish.
It’s always best when using Farm Fresh Chicken. I buy my meat in bulk through a community Co-op called The Savory Butcher. I’m able to get superior quality products at a better price than our local grocery stores can offer.
The meat arrives FRESH from the Farm, never frozen and the chicken is already hand trimmed! So it’s immediately ready to be used, canned or frozen!
If you want High Quality Chicken, Ground Hamburger and Bacon – for less than you pay at the store, you need Savory Butcher!
They just launched from beta testing, and are working on adding new states/cities to their delivery routes.

Italian Baked Chicken Ingredients:
- Frozen Boneless and skinless Chicken Breasts
- Olive Oil
- Seasoned Salt
- Italian Seasonings
- Garlic Pepper (optional)
The trick is the type of Chicken you use. I Farm Fresh Chicken from the Savory Butcher, because of the higher quality of meat with less grissle, or tendens in the chicken that make chewing unpleasant.
About twice a year I pick up a few cases of Savory Butcher chicken and then freeze the chicken or can the chicken for easy use the rest of the year. So it makes this recipe even easier as I already have the chicken prepped, and ready to go. I can take it straight from the freezer and don’t even need to thaw it!
Italian Baked Chicken Directions:
Then sprinkle with Seasoned Salt. Again not a lot. Simply sprinkle it on the chicken until there is a light dusting on the frozen chicken tenderloins.
Repeat the same dusting of spices with the Italian Seasonings and the garlic pepper. The garlic pepper is really optional.
We have made this Italian baked chicken both with and without the Garlic pepper. It turns out great both times. So if you don’t have any don’t worry too much. But it does add some great flavor. So if you have some on hand, definitely sprinkle it on!
Bake oven for 20-25 minutes. Then check to ensure the center is thoroughly cooked. You can also do this same recipe with whole frozen chicken breasts, but you will need to increase the cooking time.
If the chicken breasts are too large, though, it does begin to dry out before they are thoroughly cooked. If you have an average size chicken breast it will usually take about 30-40 minutes.
