Sewickley Hotel Diet Chicken

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 15 mins

When I got out of college I bussed tables at a wonderful, little restaurant. "Diet Chicken" wasn't on the menu, but customers knew to ask when they wanted it. The olive oil in the dressing keeps these simple, grilled chicken breasts moist. Its absurdly simple and completely delicious. Eat as is or cut in strips to top a salad or fill a wrap.


  1. Brush the chicken breasts with Italian dressing.
  2. Grill or broil 5-7 minutes on the first side. Brush with dressing again and turn.
  3. Grill another 5-7 minutes or until fully cooked.

I have made this a lot! Italian dressing is very good, BUT there is another dressing that is just like Italian dressing, but it is healthier. You won't know the difference! Cheesy fantastico tastes very similar and is WONDERFUL. I love Italian dressing and this other dressing tastes just the same to me!

I have also been making this for years. I especially like to grill the meat then sliced or chopped to top a green salad. Thank you for posting this recipe!

I have been making this for years. This is my oldest sons favorite meal. I normally marinate in the dressing overnight and then grill. Love it.
