Let's Make It
1
Mix all ingredients except chicken until blended; pour into large freezer-weight resealable plastic bag. Add chicken. Press bag to remove as much air as possible, then seal bag.
2
Freeze up to 3 months.
3
Heat greased grill to medium heat. Remove chicken from bag; discard bag and dressing mixture.
4
Grill chicken 10 to 12 min. on each side or until done (165ºF).
Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Variation
These tasty marinated chicken breasts can instead be baked in the oven. Heat oven to 350ºF. Remove frozen chicken breasts from the bag; place on rimmed baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Discard bag and dressing mixture. Bake chicken 30 min. or until done (165°F).
Tip 2
Special Extra
Sprinkle evenly with 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro before serving.
Tip 3
Nutrition Bonus
This smart Southwest-style entrée features lean poultry in a tasty marinade. And since it goes straight from the freezer to the grill, it makes the perfect dish to serve as part of a quick weeknight meal.
