Mmmmmm, Italian Grilled Chicken! This is the meal I wait all winter for. As soon as it’s warm enough to fire up the grill, this is the first thing on the menu.

This is the best tasting, most flavorful grilled chicken ever and it couldn’t be easier. It’s almost embarrassing how easy it is. It only has two ingredients. I didn’t even take a picture of the ingredients this time because it’s only two. Chicken and Italian Dressing. And don’t stop reading here if you’re not a fan of Italian dressing… I don’t care for Italian dressing on salads, but once you try this chicken you’ll never go back. You must trust me on this.

As you can see, I usually serve it with fresh fruit and rice. This is the perfect summer evening meal.

    We barbeque just about every meal in summer and some in winter too. There is nothing like the taste of food cooked on the grill. You did not say whether your contest was only for US residents so I am commenting. I live in Canada.

    Oh, no! I was going to make the Nacho Chicken Bake I saw here once for supper tonight, but now I don’t see it anymore…..

    We tried it once and really liked it. I guess it got bumped. I was hoping to see what Amanda put with it for her meal.

    O well. If anyone knows, please email me at THANKS!!!!

    I can’t believe how yummy this chicken is. I tried this recipe last night and it was so good and it’s so easy to make! I’ve tried a couple of other recipes on here and they’ve all turned out really good, I can’t wait to try the iced mocha this weekend.

    This is what we had for super tonight! I love marinating my chicken in Italian dressing…I’ve started using the Tuscan Italian dressing and it is wonderful! I experiment with different types of Italian dressings.

    This was surprisingly delicious. I even made a side of cooked broccoli and drizzled Italian dressing on it before eating.

    I found that recipe in the Sunday paper about 4 years ago. It is so moist – my family always asks for it as soon as it warms up and we can use the grill. I have already fixed it in the winter(when we have those “little thaws” from time to time). Spring can’t come soon enough.

    Ha,ha! That’s the way we grill our chicken. It comes out so moist doesn’t it? I love to have potato salad on the side or yellow rice (from the baggie.)

    Best Regards,
