This is my new favorite BBQ chicken recipe. I loved everything about this dish. It was perfect in my book. The sauce is very different from my usual BBQ sauces. This BBQ sauce has Italian dressing in it. I wasn’t sure how I would like it, but I absolutely loved it! The chicken is marinated in Italian dressing and basted in the zesty BBQ sauce as it grills. I think the BBQ sauce would also be great on a grilled pork tenderloin. Give this a try the next time you grill out. You won’t be disappointed!
Zesty BBQ Chicken
1/2 cup Zesty Italian Dressing, divided
4 chicken breast halves
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
2 Tbsp orange marmalade
Pour 1/4 cup dressing over chicken in shallow dish or ziplock bag; turn to evenly coat both sides of each breast. Refrigerate 1 hour up to overnight.
To make the BBQ sauce, whisk together barbecue sauce, marmalade and remaining dressing.
Remove chicken from dressing. Grill chicken 5 to 7 min. on each side or until done, brushing with sauce mixture for the last few minutes of cooking.
