Italian Dressing Marinated Grilled Chicken

Fresh chicken breast marinated in Italian dressing and then grilled is a simple way to make chicken delicious! Unfortunately, most all store bought Italian dressings are full of scary ingredients and preservatives. My recipe for home-made Paleo Italian dressing is a perfect marinade for full flavored, juicy chicken minus the junk found in store bought dressing. Enjoy!

1 pound fresh chicken breast
3/4 cup EVOO
1/4 Roasted garlic red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon celery salt
Sea salt, fresh ground black pepper, and red pepper flakes to taste

1.) In a larger bowl, combine EVOO, red wine vinegar and all seasonings. Whisk together until well mixed.
2.) Add chicken breast to dressing mixture, toss to coat and cover with a lid or foil. Place in refrigerator for at least 4-8 hours or overnight.
3.) Pre-heat grill on high. Remove chicken from refrigerator 30 minutes prior to cooking. Grill chicken over medium-high heat for 7-8 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked through. 
4.) Let rest 5 minutes before serving.
