RECIPE BACKSTORY
This chicken was so tasty and juicy! Yum-O! I have heard of marinating chicken in Italian Salad Dressing and it sounded pretty good to me! I haven't been looking for recipes like this but decided to throw this together with what I had on hand and boy am I glad I did! Talk about easy and very few ingredients and that's a good thing! I bought 3 big boneless, skinless chicken breast and gave them a butterfly cut, cutting thru the inside center lengthwise and cutting all the way thru to get 6 breast out of the three! Worked like a charm and it's a great way to cut the breast if you don't like thick breast like my family and I don't! We prefer the thinner breast! You can see from my picture they aren't to thin, just perfect for us!
