An easy marinated grilled chicken recipe that's quick enough for a weeknight dinner.
This is a super easy, old school grilled chicken recipe. I remember having it as a kid with salad dressing out of a bottle. This recipe uses my paleo Italian dressing recipe as a marinade for a quick weeknight grilled chicken dinner.
Generally, I'm a fan of using bone-in chicken. But for quick cooking, boneless is the way to go. The key to keeping it moist is not overcooking it. Boneless chicken breasts can go from tender and juicy to dry and tough in a matter of minutes. The best way to make sure you have perfectly cooked chicken is to use an instant-read meat thermometer.
Serve this chicken with cucumber tomato salad for an easy summer meal. Leftovers are great on a grilled chicken salad for lunch.
- 4 boneless chicken breasts
- 1/2 cup paleo Italian dressing
Place chicken breasts in shallow glass bowl and cover with Italian dressing. Turn chicken to coat and marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat grill to medium high. Grill chicken 3-5 minutes per side, until chicken reaches 155 degrees. Remove from grill, cover with foil, and let rest for 5 minutes.
