Grilled Italian Chicken Parmesan
Why I Love This Recipe
My hubby is at it again! Grilling us something scrumptious for dinner! I don't know what it is but I have been craving chicken parmesan but I've been wanting to have it grilled and not breaded! Perfect! I love the Grilled Italian Chicken that he makes on the grill so I jazzed that recipe up and made it chicken parmesan! Delicious and it sure is what my craving needed! Fulfilled indeed! The parmesan noodles are a perfect match for the parmesan chicken! They are like two peas in a pod!
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!
Ingredients You'll Need
For the chicken
3-4 large boneless skinless chicken breast (cut butterfly style all the way thru)
16 ounce bottle Kraft Seven Seas Viva Italian salad dressing
1 teaspoon minced garlic from a jar
garlic salt, fresh ground black pepper and Lawry's Seasoned Salt, to taste
24 ounce jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce or marinara
2 cups shredded parmesan or mozzarella cheese
For the noodles
1 (8 ounce) package bowtie noodles
1/2 cup margarine or butter
1/2 teaspoon onion salt (or onion powder)
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt (or garlic powder)
cracked black pepper to taste
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Pour 12 ounces of salad dressing into a gallon size ziploc bag. Add chicken and garlic. Place in refrigerator.
Marinade 6 hours but no longer. The chicken will almost be falling apart at 6 hours.
Remove from fridge and ziploc bag. Season with garlic salt, pepper and seasoned salt.
Grill on medium heat 20 minutes or until internal temp reaches 165 degrees, turning every 5 minutes. During the last 10 minutes of grilling, baste chicken with remaining 4 ounces of salad dressing on both sides.
While chicken is still on the grill, top each piece with some spaghetti sauce and cheese. Grill until cheese is melted.
Cook noodles as directed on package; drain and toss with margarine, salts, pepper and Parmesan cheese. Top with remaining spaghetti sauce.
