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!

Great! So simple-I didn't have dip so I used ranch dressing and left out the oil. Turned out moist with an excellent flavor.

Made for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #16. This was excellent and so moist! We did have an issue with it taking a long time to get done, but it's because we didn't use enough charcoal and the drippings from the marinade made the fire go out - lesson learned - next time we'll use more charcoal to start with. We put it in the MW to finish it up and it still came out moist. Thanks Kim for a great recipe!

Very easy and very tasty! The kids gobbled this up. I used boneless, skinless breasts and grilled them on the George Foreman, since we're having an ice storm right now (grin). Thanks for posting.

I forgot to add fresh herbs to the marinade. I don't think it changes a lot the taste. I really loved it this way. I can't wait to try it on the bbq (for now it's under a lot of snow lol) So I grilled them in a skillet and ended the cooking in the oven. Thanks Kim :) Made for 123 hit wonders.
