I put everything into a ziploc bag and let it go. This is great with a salad or over pasta. Read More

I used chicken breasts with the bone and marinated for 24 hours. I baked the chicken but it was dry without much flavor. I don't think I will make again. Read More

A good easy recipe when you are short on prep time. BUT I think a whole bottle of dressing is too much. 8 oz or 1/2 would be plenty for 4 chicken breasts. Read More

I sometimes will cook my chicken in a non stick skillet using Italian Dressing only as my cooking oil. Usually when the weather isn't good enough outside to cook on the grill. It really gives the chicken a great flavor. Read More

I have been using something like this for years as well. I leave out the salt and add hot sauce (like RedHot). You only add to taste so when mixed with the rest of the marinade it doesn't over power. Not too hot just adds some zing! My families favorite!! Read More

I used this marinade on 3 lbs. of chicken parts instead of the boneless breasts. I marinated the chicken about 8 hrs. then baked it at 400 for almost an hour. I poured about 1 cup of the marinade over the chicken before baking and basted occasionally. It turned out tender and tasty. Read More

Delicious and Super Easy - I agree with the other reviewers - you don't need a whole bottle of dressing!! I used a storage bag added about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of dressing 2 tsp. of minced garlic added 4 boneless chicken breast - sealed it up and marinated it in frig for about 1 1/2 hrs. turning occasionally. Put in on the grill-it was 92 degrees outside so I just served it with store bought salads and cranberry sauce on throw away plates - there was virtually nothing to clean up except for utensils. A nice quick summer meal! Read More

If possible I would give this an extra 5 stars! I definitely will use this recipe over and over. The chicken was MARVELOUS! We served it over F.Alfredo (using this recipe on this site Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce). So simple yet so delicious! Thanks for sharing this recipe. Like the others I marinated my chicken overnight I tenderized it with a meat tenderizer and then poked holes through it with a fork. Each bite was packed with punch and flavor...You have got to try this recipe. Read More

5 stars for a quick and easy marinade. I thawed the chicken out first then poked holes in it so that the marinade would soak in! This was a great summer dinner!! Thanks Read More
