Italian Chicken. Deliciously simple with only 2 ingredients, just in time for picnicking, tailgating, and learning to cook.
My Italian Chicken is one of the simplest, but tastiest, chicken recipes I make. You can grill the chicken indoors on a George Foreman Indoor Grill (I love mine!) or outdoors on a gas or charcoal grill. What’s the secret?
I never would have thought about making chicken this way. In the early 1990s I went to a Milwaukee Brewer’s game with a friend. We tailgated before the game and he brought the food. When I tasted it, I couldn’t figure out why it was so juicy and delicious. He finally gave up his secret, and I’ve been making it this way ever since.
It takes only two ingredients and a simple trick to making this delicious chicken. So what’s the secret? Marinating the chicken in Italian dressing.
What You Need
For this recipe, you need either an indoor grill or an outdoor grill, and a dish to marinate your chicken. Buy the very best tools you can afford and they will last a lifetime.
Italian Chicken Recipe
Italian Chicken Recipe
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (4 ounces each)
- 1/2 cup Italian Dressing
- Put the chicken in a shallow dish and pour the Italian dressing over it.
- Marinate the chicken in the Italian dressing for at least one hour in the refrigerator.
Grill about 6 minutes a side on a hot outdoor grill or 6 minutes total on a George Foreman Indoor Grill (or similar indoor grill).
NOTE: Be careful if you are using the George Forman Grill. It cooks both sides at the same time, so it will only take about 6 minutes total to cook a breast.
