Italian Dressing Grilled Chicken
24 hours prep time.
20 minutes cook time.
Makes 8 servings.
Place the chicken in a large Ziploc bag. Pour the dressing over it and seal the bag tightly. Shake everything together, using your hands to make sure the chicken is fully coated. Place on a plate or bowl and chill in the fridge overnight.
Heat a stovetop or outdoor grill over medium-high heat. Grease with a bit of oil or cooking spray. Drain most of the dressing off each piece, then carefully place the chicken on the hot grill. Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes on the first side. Flip over and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on the second side. Brush the chicken with barbecue sauce and flip over. Continue to brush each side with barbecue sauce, flipping and cooking for about 10 minutes. You’ll know the chicken is done when the internal temperature reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit with a cooking thermometer.
Transfer to a plate or platter and cover loosely with foil. Allow to sit about 10 to 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
- 3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 bottle Zesty Italian dressing
- Olive Oil or cooking spray, for greasing
- 1 to 1 ½ cups barbecue sauce

What I love most about this book? First, Rach explains basic table manners. Bam. Thank you. Second, these are recipes a real person with a regular kitchen can make. It was as if your good friend shared a recipe, instead of Martha Stewart showing you how to make your tomatoes grow by having your own bee hive. (I also love Martha, but that isn't my daily life.)
I posted a pic of the Italian chopped salad I made. The directions were easy to follow, and the photos in the book look REAL.
You are missing out if you don't have this cookbook in your kitchen!
Fear not! There are quite a few vegetarian/pescatarian/meatless friendly options and it’s quite easy to make little alterations to the existing meat ingredients (such as swapping chicken for shrimp!)
I think the greatest thing so far has been the spice blends, I keep them on hand for everything! My favorite meal so far has been the cauliflower stir fry! So so yummy!
(I received a digital sampler from the publisher of this cookbook)
NOT THIS ONE! Real Life Dinners by Rachel Hollis is the exception. I have made at least 10 of the recipes in this book and have liked them all. They call for everyday, healthy ingredients (not processed); usually only 5-6 ingredients. The recipes themselves are easy to follow and are done within minutes. Just like the title says....real life. I still have recipes on my "to try" list, too!
Order this one. You won't regret your decision. And happy eating!
Rachel Hollis the chef/cookbook- 1 Star
First, it feel like a collection of dinner pins that just about everyone has on their Pinterest.
Also, if you follow her on social media then you know she eats this food like 0 percent of the time. She drinks smoothies, eats salads, and hard boiled eggs- almost obsessively so.
I gave the cookbook an extra star because the introduction chapter about table etiquette is a redeemable aspect, and something I feel more people should follow.
In the end, I returned mine.
But Girl Wash Your Face and make meals using free recipes on Pinterest.
I let go of nearly 10 years of comparing myself to my husbands first wife (who is an incredible cook!) and FINALLY embraced who I AM in the kitchen (and it wasn’t THAT BAD!)
The beautiful pictures and step by step instructions made being in the kitchen so super fun (especially for this newbie chef and stepmom!!) We got our kids in on the cooking and cleanup as well!!
As a part of the launch team, I made several videos of the meals our family created. I even started my own cooking YouTube channel! LOL
Thank you for this GIFT Rachel Hollis!!! These meals are easy, fun and so, so good!!!!
