    Delicious! I marinated it overnight and the flavor was great. I ended up grilling it as directions stated and then putting it in the oven for about 10 more minutes

    Who would have known that you could get great taste with just three simple ingredients! I baked the chicken, but will grill it next time. It came out very moist and flavorful

    I made my own Italian dressing and used a different BBQ sauce ( The one I had on hand). Its soooooo good! I also made it in the Instant pot ( Poultry button 15 min). I used about 1 lbs of chicken thighs

    Saw this recipe a few months ago and I’ve been making it every chance I get. I always bake it. When I take it for lunch at work, my coworkers always want to eat some of it. Definitely a quick and easy meal to make. I’m actually making it this very minute. Got my apartment smelling really good!

    It was really good! I plan on adding this to my regular dinners. I cut the breasts in half along the length of the chicken then only marinated it for about 30 to 40 minutes. Then cooked it on the stove for 5 to 7 minutes on each side. It was perfect!

    Easy, Convenient and Tasty. Will definitely make again. My boyfriend and I loved it.
    this barbecue chicken turned out "beautiful". The zest and the sweetness from the Barbque sauce was a great combination.
    it was a hit with the kids

    This chicken had lots of flavor! I actually marinated the chicken, then froze in marinade to make for a quick meal another night. Tasted great and worked out wonderfully after frozen uncooked!

    Unique taste! I didn’t have access to a grill so I cooked it on the stovetop. Came out delicious, wished I had added more BBQ sauce instead of drowning the chicken in the Italian dressing.
