I think we can all agree that I love my grill. I mean, there is practically no clean up so what is there not to love? From our Taco grilled chicken to our grilled corn we love using our grill in the Summer months. Today I wanted to share with you our absolute best BBQ Chicken recipe. I love it because it is packed with flavor and it is crazy easy to make.
Just 2 Ingredients for Best BBQ Chicken Recipe:
- 1/2 cup of Italian Salad Dressing ( I normally use Kraft Zesty)
- 1/2 cup of BBQ Sauce (any brand – I usually get Kraft because it is inexpensive)
How to make:
- Mix the two ingredients together.
- Marinade with chicken (or pork) overnight for best results.
- Grill until cooked through.
This recipe is also amazing if you bake the chicken or throw the chicken in the crock pot. Either way, it really is the easiest and the best BBQ chicken recipe. Can you really get any easier than this?
Now if you don’t have enough time to marinade the chicken – no problem! Just season the chicken with pepper. Then start to grill. Meanwhile combine the Italian dressing and the BBQ sauce in a bowl. Glaze the chicken each time you flip the chicken on the grill with the BBQ mixture with a silicone basting brush. You will still get the amazing flavor without all the work.
Now if you are needing some basting brushes, I highly recommend GrillPro 41090 2-Piece Silicone Basting Brush which are actually on sale right now for only $7!
This recipe also freezes great.
Just place the marinade and the chicken breast in a freezer bag. Freeze until solid (freeze it flat). Then when you thaw it for dinner it is marinading too! Win-win!
