Zesty Grilled Chicken

With just two ingredients in the marinade, this chicken recipe is ready in a snap. While my husband grills the chicken, I prepare the rice and heat the sauce to spoon over the top. —LaDonna Reed, Ponca City, Oklahoma

    2 servings


  • 2 tablespoons plus 1/4 cup chunky salsa, divided
  • 4 tablespoons zesty Italian salad dressing, divided

  • In a large resealable plastic bag, combine 2 tablespoons salsa and 2 tablespoons salad dressing; add the chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • In a small saucepan, combine the remaining salsa and dressing; cook over low heat until heated through, stirring occasionally; set aside and keep warm.

Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 170°. Immediately top with cheese. Serve over rice if desired. Top with salsa mixture.
