"I put together this recipe while going to college," recalls Anita Keppinger of Philomath, Oregon. "To save time later, I place the thawed chicken and salad dressing in the pan in the morning, cover it and refrigerated it until I get home. When it's time to cook dinner, I simply sprinkle it with the cheese and bake."
"I got the inspiration for this recipe when I knew my parents and in-laws were coming to see our new home," shares Kerry Durgin Krebs of New Market, Maryland. "My mother-in-law has food allergies, my father-in-law has some very specific food preferences and my parents appreciate light meals. I created this chicken sandwich with fresh basil for our lunch."

When we have friends over during the summer, I usually serve this grilled chicken. It's tender, moist and bursting with the tangy taste of lime. I'm often asked for the recipe.—Kay Alliman, Biggsville, Illinois
Notes Janne Rowe from Wichita, Kansas, "I start this salad by poaching chicken breasts in a mixture of white wine, garlic and lemon juice. It gives them great flavor and helps keep them moist." The cubed chicken, veggies and cooked rice are tossed with a tasty homemade dressing.
