Without a doubt, I think chicken is my favorite meat. No matter what you do to it (besides burn it!) it tastes amazing! Some of my favorite chicken dishes Chicken and Rice, Chicken Pot Pie, Chicken Nuggets, S&P Chicken, and this Italian Chicken.
Quick and easy, it makes a perfect weeknight dinner. Especially when I forget to set something out or I need leftovers for the rest of the week. Usually I end up making extra for lunches! I'll either cube it up add it to a salad, mix in a little BBQ sauce and put it on a sandwich, or throw it in a container and eat it as is. No matter which way I reuse it, it still tastes amazing on Friday.
It's best not to over marinate the chicken. I've found that it becomes a little dry sitting for over an hour. If you have to choose between 15 minutes or 1 hour and 15 minutes, do the 15 minutes. It will still taste fine! And this recipe is written for a conventional oven, but in the summertime we love to throw it on the grill!
Start by cutting your chicken into cubes. I've found it's easiest (and safest!) to use scissors. Place chunks in a small bowl.
Pour Italian dressing over the chicken. Be generous here! You want the chicken completely covered.
Slide the marinated chicken cubes on skewers and place on a foil lined baking sheet.
Broil on high 8-10 minutes per side or until chicken is no longer pink inside. You'll have to watch carefully. Unfortunately the cooking time varies with every oven.
Serve with a salad or baked potato for the perfect meal!
