    Seamouse's Note:

    Using bottled salad dressing, my cousin put a twist on a recipe I have used for years and came up with this super easy crowd pleaser. We have this with roasted potatoes and Greek salad all summer... and the kids love it!

    1. 1
      Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry.
    2. 2
      Sprinkle both sides of the breasts with salt, pepper, and garlic powder, using more or less to taste.
    3. 3
      Put chicken in a dish and add about 1/3 cup of the salad dressing, making sure all of the chicken is coated. Cover. A plastic bowl with a lid works well.
    4. 4
      Refrigerate for at least an hour or two.
    5. 5
      Grill over medium direct heat for 8-10 minutes or until juices run clear.
    6. 6
      Remove from grill to a cutting board, cover with foil and allow to sit for 10 minutes.
    7. 7
      Slice breasts on a diagonal crosswise in 1/4 inch slices.
    8. 8
      Toss slices on a shallow serving platter with the remainder of the salad dressing coating all the chicken well. Use more dressing if desired.
    9. 9
      Serve hot or at room temperature.
    10. 10
      Note: To prepare as an appetizer, cube chicken in small chunks, marinate as above, grill 3-5 pieces on small wooden skewers (soaked in water), brush on salad dressing and serve.

      This is a good basic marinade recipe. I just don't understand why it says DO NOT USE FAT FREE DRESSING. I use fat free Italian EVERY time I make this and it always turns out GREAT. I also like to use minced garlic and a touch of honey. Lemon or lime juice also works well. I let my chicken marinate for at least 3 hours. I encourage everyone to use fat free dressing. It cuts calories without cutting flavor, so why not?

      They weren't as flavorful as I had hoped. I would suggest marinating them for twice that time.

      Awesome and easy recipe. I used mediteranean sea salt, course ground pepper, seasoning salt and yogurt butter. I served w/ scalloped potatoes and roasted asparagus.
