Easy Grilled Chicken Marinade Recipe

Here is the easiest chicken marinade recipe ever! It only requires 2 ingredients and a few hours in the refrigerator to marinate. So delicious.... so simple! Low fat and tasty, too. Bring on grilling season, I say!

Prep time is very fast and your meal will be so much more satisfying when you make it at home. Control the fats, carbohydrates and salt content yourself!


1 bottle Wishbone (or your own choice) Italian Salad Dressing

1 cup soy sauce


Take 1-2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast. Trim excess fat and slice into 2-inch wide strips. Place in 13 x 8 inch glass pyrex dish and pour marinade over top, covering completely. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Pre-heat grill to medium heat (350 degrees). Place the strips directly on the grilling surface. There is no need to skewer them, unless you desire. Grill for 4-5 minutes on each side. Remove and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

This marinade is also excellent for boneless pork chops. Just follow the same directions as above. Be sure to cook the meat to an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees F, using a meat thermometer.

Marinated Grilled Chicken can be Used in Other Recipes

This chicken is terrific as a main course, served with corn on the cob, fruit salad, and toasted french bread. We also enjoy it over salad greens. No need to buy frozen chicken strips when this is a much fresher, tastier alternative!

If you don't eat all the marinated grilled chicken, you can use it for delicious leftovers. My sister uses leftover marinated grilled chicken on pizza or tossed with pasta. You can even shred it into vegetable soup to add protein and heartiness.

During the "grilling" months, we make this recipe at least once a week. But we do make it year round. You can make it in the oven, as well as the grill. Simply heat the oven to 375 degrees F and place the strips of chicken on a broiling pan. Turn once after 4 minutes and complete cooking after an additional 3-4 minutes. Be sure to test internal temperature before removing.

Its easy to double or triple this marinade chicken recipe for parties, 4th of July, picnics, you name it! Leftovers are delicious enjoyed cold, too!

Healthy, low-fat protein is a cornerstone of a sound diet.

Use This Marinade for Other Recipes

Not a fan of chicken? Don't worry, this marinade recipe can be used for other proteins. Prepare the marinade and use with shrimp, pork or tofu. It does not work as well for red meat, including beef, lamb, elk or ostrich. With these meats, a stronger combination, usually with red wine or red wine vinegar is preferable.

Again, you can toss the cooked, marinated protein with noodles, top baked potatoes with it, or simply enjoy hot or cold any time of the day!
