We are talking grilling recipes all this week! Why heat up your kitchen when you can grill, right? Plus, I love that there is less mess when I grill up dinner.
Did you know you can use salad dressing to marinade your chicken in? You can! Why spend money on those expensive bottle marinades when a good old bottle of dressing will do. Most vinaigrette dressings will work great and even some creamy versions work too like creamy Italian. Then when you only use part of a bottle for a marinade you can use the rest for a salad. Just pick dressing with a nice strong flavor and that will go well with chicken. I was recently able to pick up a bunch of Kraft dressings for $1. For this photo I used the roasted red pepper Italian with Parmesan flavor.
Salad Dressing Chicken Marinade
- 1 cup salad dressing (vinaigrette works best)
- 4-6 chicken breasts
- Place chicken and dressing in a releasable gallon sized bag. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour but the longer the better, all day is best.
- Then remove chicken from the marinade and grill until completely cooked, Enjoy!
