    My sister made this for her family and mine on a visit to her house. She had to feed 10 people. This was simple and easy to prepare but this taste great. She suggested taking a large meat fork and poking the chicken breasts so that the marinate would go through the meat and then we grilled it. This is Fantastic!

    I marinated mine overnight. This is super easy to make and sooo yummy. Didn't need anything extra. Will be making this again!

    This is a really easy and very tasty way to cook chicken. I've been making it this way for years. I do pour the italian dressing over the chicken before baking and I bake for longer time at 350F so the skin crisps up.

    This was very easy to put together and the chicken was moist. I used a combination of several different salad dressings since I didn't have enough Italian for the triple batch I made, and it was still good. I also seasoned with a garlic herb blend. I ended up cooking the chicken about 30 min.


<p>I am not a very interesting person. I like to cook, I like to eat, and I love my husband Rick and my son Hugh. Thats pretty much it when it comes to me, that and an obsession for cats, especially our 2, Bunny &amp; Bindy Sue. We live in Lake Dallas, TX, and have been married since August 16th, 2003. Hugh was born October 19th, 2009. Rick and I met on the internet in September 2001, and when we were married I moved from NJ where I grew up, to the big, scary, strange city of Dallas. There are things I like about Dallas and things I don't. I am definitely homesick for some real NY style pizza.</p>
