Only 6 ingredients needed. A packet of Good Seasons Italian Dressing Mix makes a wonderful base for a marinade.

Ingredients Needed

  • Good Seasons Italian Dressing Mix– I always have packets of Good Seasons in my pantry. It is probably my favorite salad dressing. I also love to use it in this Marinated Shrimp Recipe. It adds tons of seasoning and flavor to these chicken breasts.
  • Lemon Juice– Fresh is best. Tip: Microwave your lemons for 10 seconds and they are much easier to juice.
  • Olive Oil
  • Garlic Cloves– one teaspoon of garlic powder can be used instead.
  • Crushed Red Pepper Flakes– add just a touch of heat. Omit if you don’t want any spice.
  • Boneless, skinless Chicken Breasts– this recipe can be made with boneless, skinless chicken thighs instead. They will need to cook a little longer.

How Long To Marinate The Chicken

The chicken should be marinated for at least 12 hours and for a maximum of 24 hours. The acidity of the lemon will start to break down the chicken and it will have an unappealing texture if it is marinated too long.

There is enough marinade to marinate up to 6 chicken breasts. Any more than that and I would double the marinade.

Recipe Tip

If you don’t have a grill, the chicken can be cooked in a grill pan or cast iron skillet.

Storage

Leftovers will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4 days. Slice the chicken and add to a salad for an easy healthy meal.
