I use this Homemade Italian Dressing so frequently that I completely forgot that it wasn’t on the blog. Actually, it is on the blog, as the dressing for my Olive Garden’s Famous House Salad. It’s just so delicious that I thought it deserved it’s own post.

This recipe is very simple. No chopping and very little prep. All you need to do it throw all the ingredients in a mason jar, shake and you’re done. I also love this recipe because it’s homemade and has absolutely no preservatives or chemicals like a store bought dressing would.

Italian Chicken Marinade

Get your summer grilling started with this Italian Chicken Marinade recipe. It’s only 5 ingredients and they’re all sitting in your pantry right now. This recipe is allergy friendly (gluten, dairy, nut, egg, soy and shellfish free) and suits the autoimmune protocol (AIP) and paleo diets.

Store bought marinades were a pantry staple before I got sick. It’s so nice to be able to get dinner started in just a few minutes. All I had to do was dump the jar into a re-sealable bag with some chicken and let it marinade in the fridge. Those days are gone because store bought foods are a land mine of off limits ingredients. I needed something that was just as easy but fit within my food restrictions. This Italian Chicken Marinade is easy, delicious and uses only a handful of pantry staples.

Back home (sup’ Buffalo), there’s this marinade called Chivettas. It’s a hometown favorite of mine. You could always smell Chivetta’s in the air around dinnertime during the summer. Everyone was grilling and it smelled delicious.

I’ve tried to recreate the taste in this recipe. It’s not exact, as I’m working from memory and still working within my food restrictions. It’s still delicious and very close to what I remember.

It’s a very vinegary marinade so you only need to soak the meat in it for a few hours. You can always do it longer but I like that I don’t absolutely have to. I have a tendency to forget to put chicken in a marinade the night before. It’s such a busy time that I really don’t think about it until I start getting hungry. I appreciate that it only takes 5 minutes to throw all the ingredients into a plastic bag and then a few hours later I can pull it out of the fridge and it’s ready to be cooked.
