Italian Marinated Grilled Chicken

This recipe could not be any simplier.  All you need is a bit of zesty Italian dressing and a hot grill and you'll have the perfect grilled chicken. For this round, the chicken was used for a grilled sandwich, topped with turkey bacon, American cheese and sandwiched between two halves of an English muffin.

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken brests
  • 1 Teaspoon oregano
  • 1 Teaspoon basil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 Cup Italian dressing

Directions

Pound the chicken breasts until they are thin. In a zippered plastic bag, put chicken, dressing and seasonings, seal, and vigorously shake to completely coat the chicken. Allow chicken to marinate for 3 hours minium or overnight for best results.

Heat the grill and allow chicken to cook thorough on each side. Do not move the chicken around too much if you want to get the perfect grill lines. 

Italian Shopping Tip

Italian Cooking Tip

Unlike other highly regarded cuisines, Italian cooking is usually simple to make with many dishes having only 4 to 8 ingredients. Italian cooks rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation.
