  • 4 to 6 chicken breasts thin or split breasts work best
  • 1 cup Italian dressing
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste optional


  • Place chicken breasts in zip top gallon freezer bag, and use a meat mallet to gently pound chicken to about ¼ inches thick and even
  • Place chicken into another zip top gallon freezer bag, add garlic powder, Italian seasoning and Italian dressing. Make sure chicken is well coated -- add more dressing if needed. Place in refrigerator and marinate for 2 to 3 hours or overnight
  • Remove chicken from bag, grill over medium direct heat (around 350°) for 10 to 12 minutes, turning over about halfway. Internal temp should be 165°. Or, preheat oven to 425°, place chicken on foil-lined baking sheet, and bake for 20 minutes or until internal temperature is 165° according to a meat thermometer
  • Cover, and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving


Every oven and grill is different. Always test temperature with meat thermometer to make sure chicken is 165 internally.
Thin or pounded thin chicken breasts work best. If you forget to marinate,  you can bake chicken in 35o degree oven in casserole or baking pan for 30 minutes or until chicken is 165 degrees.
