Saucy Cajun Chicken Breasts

Saucy Cajun Chicken Breasts


"Quick, bottled barbecue sauce, salad dressing and chicken breasts. What could possibly be easier?! The sauce is tangy, spicy and barely sweet. Note: Do NOT overcook the chicken! The closer to barely done it is, while still cooked through, the juicier and more tender it will be. It seems 99% of all restaurants grossly over cook their chicken breasts!"

  1. Place frozen chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag and cover with salad dressing. Seal bag and place in refrigerator and marinate until chicken is thawed (marinating frozen breasts until thawed permeates the meat with the dressing flavors).
  2. Lightly oil grill and preheat to high heat.
  3. Remove chicken breasts from marinade and grill 5 to 7 minutes each side, until they are barely done. Coat with barbecue sauce and cook just a few minutes more. Don't overcook, but check to make sure that the chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.

Simple and easy to prepare. And you can even say it's saucy, however it's definitely NOT cajun... it's now where near it. That being said the taste is dependant on the type of dressing you use, ...

My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. It was something different to do with chicken! Taste great the next day after its marinated !

Wonderful recipe. This was so simple to make. I cooked it inside though, it was too windy to barbeque. I have no doubt though that this will be even better on the bbq!

Not to be picky, but it sure doesn't take a whole bottle of barbecue sauce to coat 2 chicken breasts. A 1/4 or 1/3 cup would be closer to accurate. Also when chicken breasts are mentioned, I'm t...

This was just regular barbecued chicken, nothing special. Flavor will be dependent on the sauce used. We only brushed on what sauce we needed, it was far from a whole bottle. I didn't measure bu...

This recipe was so simple and so yummy! I placed the frozen chicken and marinade in the refrigerator the night before. The next day in the early afternoon I took them out of the bag and shook of...

I was searching for a new way to do "Cajun" chicken. This recipe unfortunately isn't a cajun chicken recipe. BUT - I decided to try this one and it is definately something different for chicken ...

Not sure where the Cajun fits in here. That said, the chicken was very good. We marinaded in the Italian dressing for a few hours, then grilled the bone-in legs and breasts basting with the BB...

Very Very good!
