I've been using Italian dressing to Marinate chicken for years. If I am using chicken breast I will pound them out thin, marinate for a few hours and cook on the grill. Makes a great grilled chi...

The recipe can also be baked barbequed, broiled or pan fried. It also can be used on flank steak, potatoes, etc.

This is a tasty and easy way to prepare chicken; however, I don't add any oil because there is oil in the salad dressing, and no extra salt.

This is a wonderful recipe. I use only 8 oz. of dressing for 4 breasts. I also sometimes use olive oil to saute the breasts in.
