Now this isn’t an exaggeration: Tastefully Simple’s website has more than 900 chicken breast recipes for delicious dinners in a hurry. (You honestly can’t go wrong, so go explore all kinds of easy ways to make tender, juicy chicken – any night of the week!)
But today I’d like to share a little secret with you. Want to know my absolute favorite way to transform ordinary chicken breasts?
Smoky Bacon BBQ Sauce and Vidalia Onion Dressing: TOGETHER.
That’s right. It might sound a little odd, but stay with me. Last summer, I made Saucy Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin featuring this surprising combination (that recipe is completely AMAZING by the way), and I just couldn’t get over the sweet-smoky-spicy-tangy fusion of flavors. Afterwards, I started mixing these two succulent sauces for everything. Cocktail meatballs for game day. Slow cooker shredded chicken sandwiches for lazy weekends. And the easiest trick of all for quick weeknights: chicken breasts.

Easy as 1-2-3: Simple & Saucy Chicken
Here’s how to make it tonight, complete with step-by-step photos. You can also see the full recipe here »
Step 1: Season Your Chicken Breasts
Prepare grill to medium heat. Grab 6 (5 ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, and sprinkle ‘em with 2 teaspoons Ultimate Steak™ Seasoning.
Step 2: Get Saucy
In a small bowl, combine ½ cup Smoky Bacon BBQ Sauce and 2/3 cup Vidalia Onion Dressing.
Step 3: Get Grilling
Place chicken on grill. Grill, turning once, for 10-12 minutes or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165°F on an instant-read thermometer, basting with half of the sauce during the last 4-5 minutes of cooking.
Drizzle with remaining sauce before serving. That’s it!
No need to wing it … you’ll have a delicious dinner on the table, ready from start to finish in 15 minutes flat.
Tips & Hints
- Serve with roasted asparagus and baby potatoes. This saucy, smoky chicken pairs perfectly with sweet corn and mashed sweet potatoes, too (and you know, a glass of white wine if you’ve had a long day).
- Too chilly to grill outdoors? Use a grill pan on your stovetop.
- If you have leftover chicken, chop it up for a Southwestern-style salad or wrap for lunch the next day.
