Tonight for dinner we grilled up these marinated chicken breasts and made fajitas out of them. I was interested to see how the chicken marinade would taste since it was based with Italian dressing. And it was quite tasty.
Once you add the rest of the spices, it really transforms the Italian dressing. I liked that it wasn’t overwhelmed with dressing flavor. Just a nice spiced marinade that left the chicken very flavorful and quite moist.
