This is a recipe that, once all of the ingredients are put together, produces a tasty sauce to spoon over the cooked chicken. Mmm, mmm, good!
1 (2 to 3 pound) whole chicken, cut into pieces
2 bay leaves
½ cup Italian-style salad dressing
2 (1 ounce) packages dry onion soup mix
¼ teaspoon dried oregano
1 (4.5 ounce) can mushrooms, drained
2 medium tomatoes, quartered
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a 9×13 inch baking pan, arrange chicken and bay leaves. In a small bowl, combine the salad dressing, onion soup mix and oregano. Pour mixture over chicken.
Bake uncovered in preheated oven, basting occasionally, for 40 minutes. Add the mushrooms and tomatoes and bake an additional 20 minutes (or until chicken and vegetables are tender.) If desired, serve with rice and salad.
