Grilled Italian Dressing Chicken

This is a real "go to" recipe for me. Everyone has that recipe they make when they have NO IDEA what the heck to make for dinner. This is mine. I always have the ingredients in the house, which isn't hard because there are only three ingredients.

Basically, you just marinate the chicken in store bought Italian dressing. It makes the chicken so moist and juicy. I always use the fat free dressing (and the recipe doesn't seem to suffer at all). The more time you have to marinate the chicken, the better. I usually, take the chicken out of the freezer in the morning and pour the dressing into the ziploc bag right away. When I get home from work, it is all defrosted and marinated.

Grilled Italian Dressing Chicken

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup Italian Dressing (can be fat free)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

1. Marinate the chicken breasts in the Italian Dressing.

2. Place on grill over direct heat for about 15-20 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.

3. 5 minutes before chicken is cooked, sprinkle 1 tbsp of Parmesan on top of each breast.
