This Easy Italian Grilled Chicken is simple, delicious, and has only 2 ingredients!
I love….love…three day weekends. And Memorial Day weekend is one of the best. Sunshine, family get- togethers, the first of the season’s fresh produce, and of course, lots and lots of grilled food. Don’t get me wrong, other holidays are great. I love the playfulness of Halloween, the color and warmth of Thanksgiving, and the cheery hustle and bustle of Christmas. But Memorial Day is different. It’s low key. It’s stress free. You can pull off a perfect Memorial day gathering with next to no planning. Which brings me to this recipe.
So go grab some chicken, a bottle of dressing, salad fixings, and a watermelon and your Memorial Day feast is ready to go. After all, who wants to spend their day off slaving away in the kitchen? Not this girl. Nope, I’m going to be spending the day relaxing outside, chilling with my fam, playing some corn hole and, enjoying some fantastic grilled chicken. How about you? How will you be spending the holiday?
P.S. Please, please, please grill up a few more chicken breasts than you’ll need for your awesome party. They make great leftovers for a chicken sandwich, on top of a salad, or my personal favorite, cranberry and pistachio chicken salad! Stay tuned for the recipe!

4 large chicken breasts
1 bottle Italian Dressing (I used Wishbone because it specifically states that it’s gluten free)
1. Butterfly chicken breasts to make 8 thinish chicken pieces.
2. Place all 8 pieces in a 13 x 9 in pan. Poke holes throughout the chicken. Pour salad dressing over all. Cover and refrigerate 4-8 hours or overnight.
