Grilling season is in full swing here in Arizona! (Well, technically, it’s grilling season just about anytime here 😉 ). One thing we grill almost every week is chicken. We usually do a big batch on the weekends which gives us some great meat for a few days during the week! So, I’m going to share with you our little “secret” to making the best (& easiest) grilled chicken! The secret?! Zesty Italian dressing (*this is a sponsored post for Kraft Zesty Italian, but we’ve been grilling chicken this way for ages & is indeed our favorite way to do it). Really, that’s it! Even bigger secret? You don’t even have to marinate the chicken ahead of time!! Really! Now, you certainly can let the chicken marinate in it, but if you forget or don’t have time, it’s no big deal. You can still get juicy & tasty chicken by just basting on the dressing while grilling! Just pour some of your Zesty Italian dressing into a small bowl for basting. Mr. Mom Endeavors starts out by basting one side of the chicken and putting that side down on the grill. Then, once on the grill, he bastes the other side (now facing up). Once the chicken is ready is to flip, he turns it over and bastes the now grilled side again (for a little extra flavor)! A few more minutes on the grill and then you’re done! The end result is moist grilled chicken (yes, even on boneless & skinless–which is just about all we buy), with just a hint of added flavor. It’s perfect for just about anything you want to use grilled chicken for!
