I've made this lots, and I don't think salt, pepper, or even the oil (as long as you're using a dressing with oil in it) are necessary. BBQ is my favorite way to cook this chicken up. Last time I bought a big package of chicken breasts, split them up and put them each in ziploc bags with the marinade, then stacked 2 in the freezer, and left one out for dinner. Later I pull one of the frozen bags out and it marinates while it defrosts. Super easy.



Good Stuff! I made a few changes though. Instead of regular Italian Dressing I used Kraft Free Italian Fat Free Dressing and it tasted GREAT! I also baked the chicken breasts at 350 for 40 minutes and it was perfect!!! DH even loved it and he hates Italian Dressing!! Thanks so much JWilliams!!!



I used half a bottle of Kraft light italian dressing, 1/4 c. of olive oil vs. veg. oil, no salt, some cracked black pepper, 3 cloves of minced garlic and added a tsp. each of basil, oregano, rosemary, and thyme. I pounded the chicken down thin and put everything in a ziploc bag and let it marinate all day. I grilled mine vs. cooking on the stove. It goes great over angel hair pasta.
