"If you are in a hurry and want a great marinade for chicken this is it! marinade for about 6-8 hours, no longer than 8 hours as the vinegar will start to "cook" the chicken.... I find that Kraft Italian is the best for this and by the sounds of it this marinade works on beef too so you might want to give that a try!"

"This was awesome! I used the mustard and garlic powder (unfortunately my fresh garlic had gone bad......next time I will definetely add some). I had read a suggestion some where that you make slits in the chicken.....being careful not to cut all the way through.......so that the marinade could penetrate deeper and to help with the cooking time. I marinated the chicken this way for about 5 hours and it was great! Thanks for posting!"
"Kittencal you are amazing! Everytime I look for recipe and your name comes up I know it will be good :) That said this is good and so easy don't skip the dijon it adds the extra kick. I marinated about five hours it has a great subtle taste try it you won't be sorry"
"This was a delicious marinade for chicken breasts. I halved the recipe to marinate four chicken breasts and they turned out sooo yummy. I will be using this marinade again..thank you!"
"Perfect marinade for boneless chicken breasts! They smelled sooo good when they came off the grill and tasted even better. Thanks so much!"
"I made this tonight to go on some chicken breasts I accidentally defrosted. It was so easy to throw together, and gave the chicken a great taste. I wish that it had been more tender, but that is probably because I used breasts, instead of a more tender meat. Thanks!"
"I gave this 5 stars. We always marinated our chicken in just italian dressing over night and inject it to give it added flavor then we grill it. I've never added garlic, oil or black pepper. I think the garlic and black pepper added sounds really good I'll try that this summer. Thanks for posting a great recipe! Christine (internetnut)"
"We've always used Italian dressing to marinate steaks in, but had never tried it before with chicken. This really gave a wonderful flavor to the chicken. Thanks for sharing the recipe! "
"Had only some Good Seasons Italian salad dressing, so used that in this recipe to marinate my chicken breasts that I did on the barbecue grill. The added flavor of the extra garlic is a nice touch. This is delicious for being such an easy recipe. Thanks for sharing, Kit."
"Very good I felt like I was cheating! So easy! I did skip the oil. I added 1/3 cup minced onions and 1 tablespoon dijon mustard. Thanks!"
"I also have been using the recipe for awhile now. My sister shared this simple technique with me. Once the chicken breasts are defrosted, take a meat fork and poke holes into the meat and then place meat and salad dressing into a zip lock bag to marinade."
"I've been doing this with chicken for years. Tastes great on the barbeque! I can really vouch for the deliciousness of this recipe!"
