Can someone help me with my diner Im trying to make?

I am cooking Italian Chicken. I've never done it before but I know how my fiance does it and I was to surprise him when he gets home from work tonight by having dinner made because he always cooks everything for me whenever I have my pregnancy cravings lol.
But anyways,
I have never touched raw meat in my entire life, but I cut the fat off and cut up the chicken.
I have it marinating in a bowl in the fridge in zesty Italian dressing. I was wondering what time I should start cooking it if I want it by 10 tonight and no later than about 10 minutes after 10. And what temperature should I use?

  • I'm not real sure about that. Wish I could tell ya. You might want to go on, and see if you can find a recipe for it. It might tell you how long to cook it,and all. Hope you all have a great dinner! Enjoy.

  • if its chicken breast then set the oven at 350 degrees and cook it for about 40 minutes, if its a whole chicken then at 350 for about an hour and a half in the oven.

  • Thanks, but its neither.
    Well it was a skinless boneless chicken breast, but its cut up into pieces and Im cooking in a think thats like a dish-like frying pan that plugs into the wall and has a temp guage.

  • Depending how thick the chicken is, and if you are going to cook it quickly like when you do a stir fry, you want the pan nice and hot and cook the chicken 3-6 minutes. I don't know what your recipe is like so i assumed it might be something like a stir fry. GL!
