Saucy Cajun Chicken Breasts


  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup Italian-style salad dressing
  • 18 ounce bottle barbecue sauce

Place frozen chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag and cover with salad dressing. Seal bag and place in refrigerator and marinate until chicken is thawed (marinating frozen breasts until thawed permeates the meat with the dressing flavors).

Lightly oil grill and preheat to high heat.

Remove chicken breasts from marinade and grill 5 to 7 minutes each side, until they are barely done. Coat with barbecue sauce and cook just a few minutes more. Don’t overcook, but check to make sure that the chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.

Makes 6 servings

Let me start by warning you that the marinade measurements are supposed to be for 2 chicken breast! We did 4 and still had enough extra marinade to do another 4. It was way too much. This is perfect for those frozen bulk packages of chicken. Toss in as many as you need in the morning, let them thaw and viola! dinner! It was good, very good. Moist, flavorful, it got those little crispy edges that add so much flavor. It doesn’t get much easier, we grilled them, but likely you could use a Foreman grill or broil them.

Today was the boys last chance to swim before summer vacation is over. We headed over to a friends after lunch and met up with several friends when we got there. It was a wee bit breezy causing a bit of complaining about being cold, but they got in anyway.

For those of you that know me, that little girl is not mine. She’s the granddaughter of a friend and an excessively good natured little lass. My 2 older boys had fun letting her boss them around. In the other picture you see #3 during one of those “I’m cold” times. They never quite catch on to the fact that you feel warm only if you stay in the water completely or if you stay out of the water completely. They would jump in and then sit out and shiver, repeatedly. The joys of summer!
