Cathy's Grilled Chicken Marinade

Here's another awesome recipe from my fabulous, gorgeous, talented, youthful, vibrant, funny, caring and all-around wonderful sister, Cathy
Thanx Cath!

Here's my chicken marinade. It doesn't have a name. And it just sort of evolved from trying different combinations of things I had in the pantry. Anyway, here's what I finally came up with, and I must say, it's tasty.

Large package boneless chicken breasts

Whisk together the following:
1/4 cup Kraft Zesty Italian dressing (or whatever Italian dressing you like)
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbsp. Montreal Steak seasoning
2 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tbsp. soy sauce (low sodium)
Optional: a couple of splashes of orange juice

Either pound chicken pieces to flatten them out a bit, or cut them cross-wise so they are half as thick. Pour marinade over chicken (either in a shallow dish or in a ziploc bag) and let sit in fridge for as long as you can. Overnight is great, but a couple of hours is fine, and even 1/2 to 1 hour will work, although chicken won't be quite as flavorful.

Remove chicken from marinade (discard marinade) and grill chicken pieces on outdoor grill or inside on a good grill pan. Serve with your favorite side dishes.

Note: This is also really good cold, sliced into strips & served in your favorite pasta salad.

Goes great with Roasted Asparagus and Rosemary Roasted Potatoes, as shown in the picture.
