  • 1 Cup Italian Dressing
  • 2 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 tbsp garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp lemon grass crushed
  • 1/2 tsp cilantro paste
  • sea salt to taste
  • 3 large chicken breasts

Step 1

Prepare the chicken by making a series of tunnels for the marinate to permeate. Stab the chicken with a steak knife, and twist as though you're a vengeful mafioso.


Step 2

Place the chicken in a 1-gal freezer bag, stabbed side up. Mix the marinade together and pour it into the bag. Seal the bag, leaving as little air as possible.


Step 3

Leave the freezer bag flat and marinate the chicken for anywhere from 4-8 hours. This makes for a convenient weeknight meal, as you can do half the preparation the morning and leave it to soak all day.


Step 4

Place the chicken breasts on the grill and cook for 15 minutes, turning them halfway through. The marinade is flavorful enough that a gas grill will do just fine. I've cooked these over charcoal though, in my grill basket with the coals in a tinfoil roaster pan I use when I want to use my gas grill as a regular grill.


Step 5

Serve these with whatever spring or summer sides you want. Corn is always good, as are smashed potatoes.
