And then tonight, I made more of a chef salad ratherthan the Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad that I had originally planned. The chicken I had cooked up on my Once a Month Mom freezer meal cooking day this past Saturday. I cut the chicken into strips, cooked it up in a skillet with some Italian dressing and froze in a freezer bag. For tonight, after making a salad with some lettuce, shredded carrots, and sliced cucumbers (from the garden!) I heated the chicken (already thawed in frig) with some cubed turkey ham in the microwave for about 1 minute, then placed on top of the salad. Added a light amount of honey mustard dressing (not Texas Pete this time :) and voila! Chef Salad. The whole family enjoyed it, and it tasted really good.
Have you ever tried marinating your chicken with Italian dressing? Give it a try. Even if you're not an Italian dressing fan, I think you'll really enjoy the flavor of grilled or saute'd chicken that has marinated in Italian dressing. Your chicken will be very flavorful, moist and tender!
