      I made 2 major chgs in this recipe & almost felt guilty reviewing it, but my outcome was so great that I hope you will not mind my methods. Ranch dressing is impossible to find here, so I made my own using Texas Ranch Dressing by Miss Annie & then made the marinade as written. My major chgs were to use it on *cod fish fillets* & bake them vs grill them. I cooked the fillets in a baking dish w/the marinade over them. When nearly done, I poured off the liquid & returned the fillets to the oven to finish cooking while I used the liquid & marinade mix to make a light sauce for them. Cod can get dry & taste fishy, but these fillets were moist & very flavourful. The way I see it, this is another creative cooking success story & I hope you agree as we love this marinade & hope to use it often. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)

      Very moist and tender chicken. Made as posted and I froze the leftover cooked chicken to use on salads and sandwiches for quick lunches. Made for PAC Fall '07. Definitely a keeper Kim.

      This was INCREDIBLE. I only had some Kraft Ranch salad dressing and used dried oregano instead of the savory. I used my double burner grill instead of the outdoor grill and boneless skinless chicken breasts, but MAN! It was so good! Thanks so much!
