A few nights ago, I decided to grill out, even though my husband was at work - usually I make him do the grilling while I do the "indoor foods" such as salads, sides, etc. But I'd had some chicken breast defrosting and didn't want to do "The Norm" with them. So I found a bottle of Italian dressing that I'd gotten for free back in my coupon-clipping, sale-ad-watching, get-things-for-free days. I'm not one for Italian dressing, so I have no idea why I got it, other than it was free (and who passes up free stuff???)...I won't eat in on a salad, ever. But I've heard of marinating chicken in it, so I figured I'd give it a whirl (I know, I'm a wild woman). I also searched our camping stuff and found 2 campfire pans, into which I put baked beans and corn and slapped those babies on the hot grill as well.

Let me tell you - I must be living in a cave for never trying that before, because that was some of THE. BEST. chicken I've ever eaten.

I may never do "The Norm" with chicken again.

Sounds good! Did Gina-Gina demand her share?

Yum! You can also throw any kind of salad dressing on vegetables and bake them in the oven. They come out tasting better than ever!
