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!

Directions

  • 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).

  • Lightly oil grill and preheat to high heat.

  • 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.

Partner Tip

Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

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 how long you marinate and what type of BBQ sauce you baste with...plus this recipe must have a typo. There's no way you need an 18 oz. bottle of BBQ sauce to baste 2 chicken breasts. I used a light Kraft Italian dressing that I spruced up a bit with some additional minced garlic a little white wine and fresh herbs. I marinated thawed chicken all day then basted with KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce. Overall this is very tasty for only a couple of ingredients. Read More

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 but would guess it to be between a quarter and a half cup of sauce at the most. Read More

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! Read More

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 thinking that it means chicken breast halves and not whole chicken breasts. There isn't anything cajun about this recipe but it is a good alternative to same ol' same ol' chicken. Read More

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 and tasted great! Read More

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 off the excess marinade. I then placed them in the slow cooker with the bbq sauce (used hot & spicy sauce) and cooked on low. Once done I shredded the chicken then served with store bought kaiser cheese and onion rolls chedder cheese slices lettuce and a bit of bbq sauce to make sandwiches. The chicken was so tender! But like everyone else this was more of a bbq chicken than a cajun chicken. Thanks for the recipe =o) Read More

The chicken was tender and had good flavor but I agree with another poster; this has nothing to do with Cajun cooking. It's a good tasting recipe though. Read More
