Italian Herbed Crusted Chicken

Hubby made this for dinner tonight and must admit, I'm pretty impressed. Better than what I've had at Olive Garden, this recipe is too easy to be believed for as good as it turned out. I can't wait to use this for entertaining, I'm sure if paired with a skin-on mashed potatoes in a light sauce (something reminiscent of a parmesan-garlic cream sauce). Served with a salad of mixed greens or seasonal roasted veggies, this is my new go-to for dinner entertaining or date nights at home.

2 envelopes Weber's Italian Herb marinade (free after coupons)
1/4 C. olive oil ($.35)
1/2 C. water (free)
3 T. white wine vinegar (free after coupons)
3 1/2 lbs. chicken breast, cut into filets ($4.55)

Whisk together all ingredients except chicken. Marinate chicken in mixture for 2 hours.

Grill chicken over medium heat for 10-12 minutes per side. Chicken is done when juices run clear and internal temperature reaches 165 F.

Serve with rice or pasta, on top of a salad, or slice thin and use this to top a pizza.

Yields = 6-8 servings
Cost: $4.90
Cost per serving: $.82
