Italian dressing soy sauce marinade
In my family we eat a lot of chicken… a lot! We love to grill and it’s fun to find new ways to change up our chicken.
A few weeks ago, I dumped 2 ingredients together and it was delicious! You can grill it, bake it, or even throw it the crockpot and I think you will be surprised how full of flavor this chicken is!
You might be skeptical at first about this recipe only calling for 2 ingredients. However, once you try it, you will love it. 🙂
It gives the meat the best flavor and tastes delicious. Oh and we also love this chicken taco marinade that is super easy.
Let’s make this Italian dressing marinade.
What do I need for 2 ingredient chicken marinade?
- Soy Sauce
- Italian Salad dressing
Also, chicken or meat of choice.
How to make Italian dressing soy sauce chicken marinade:
First, place the chicken breast in a large bowl or a large gallon size zip lock bag.
Next, add in the soy sauce and salad dressing. Stir to combine or if you use a zip lock bag, seal it tightly and shake to combine the ingredients and coat the chicken.
Marinate the chicken for at least 30 minutes but 3-4 hours or overnight is ideal.
Preheat the grill to medium high heat and spray the grill grates with a non-stick cooking spray.
Place the chicken on the grill and cook for approximately 5-7 minutes per side until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees F.
Remove the chicken from the grill and let it set for at least 5 minutes before cutting.
Serve and enjoy! We love to grill but this Italian dressing chicken marinade is also delicious on baked chicken too.

We often just use the marinade on what we have in the freezer or can get on sale at the grocery store.

substitute teriyaki sauce for the soy thats good too use that all the time nice to baste a steak with
Sound delicious. Thank you for sharing.
I have a friend of mine who served me this. I absolutely LOVED IT! I asked her what the ingredients were, and she stated just Italian Dressing and Soy Sauce. I was stunned to learn that was all it was for the GREAT flavor!
I’ve used this on chicken and pork chops. I’ve also used this for deer meat. It works so well and doesn’t need to marinate for long at all. It’s quick, easy, and tasteful. I definitely recommend!
I use this marinade for my steaks and they’re sooo tender and barely need steak sauce. Now I have better proportions to use. Before, I was just eyeballing it. Thanks for your recipe.
Awesome! That’s great to hear 🙂
Looks like easy must to do!!!
My guys really liked this on the boneless, skinless chicken thighs that was dinner last night. Added baked potatoes and veggies to round out the meal.
