3 ingredient chicken breast marinade that is super delicious and simple! Perfect for summer grilling.



1 cup Caesar salad dressing

1/3 cup lemon juice

2 tablespoons kosher salt

5 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts


  1. Using your hand or a meat mallet, pound the thicker ends of the breasts to thin them out a bit so the meat will cook evenly. Place chicken in a large container with a lid.
  2. Add dressing, lemon juice, and salt. Place the lid on top and shake to coat the chicken in the marinade. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours.
  3. Preheat grill on high heat. Place chicken smooth side down on the grill, reduce heat to low, close the lid, and cook for 7 minutes. Flip and cook another 7-8 minutes with the lid closed until the juices are clear.  Allow to rest 5 minutes before slicing.


Be sure to reduce your grill’s heat once you add the chicken so you don’t get too much char on the outside of your meat.
