Grilled chicken breasts? Marinade them in ranch dressing for sensational sandwiches topped with the works.
cup ranch dressing
tablespoon chopped fresh chives
boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb)
slices Canadian bacon
whole-grain burger buns, split
tablespoons mayonnaise or salad dressing
tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
very large tomato, sliced
medium cucumber, thinly sliced
In shallow glass or plastic dish, mix 1/4 cup of the dressing and the chives. Add chicken; turn to coat. Cover; refrigerate 1 to 2 hours, turning chicken occasionally.
Heat gas or charcoal grill. Place chicken on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 15 to 20 minutes, turning once or twice, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F). Add bacon to grill for last 2 to 3 minutes of cooking time to heat. If desired, add buns, cut sides down, for last 4 minutes of grilling or until toasted.
In small bowl, mix remaining 1/4 cup dressing, the mayonnaise and parsley; spread on cut sides of buns. Layer bacon, chicken, tomato and cucumber in each bun.
Mixing the ranch dressing with the mayo helps to thicken it a little, but feel free to use just the ranch dressing on the buns.
Ranch and other salad dressings are a quick and easy marinade for chicken. The dressing gives the chicken great flavor and helps keep it moist.
