I made this tonight, but chose to use homemade dressing. Fresh basil is key to this recipe to give it a great flavor. Don't use too much or it will overpower the taste. I also used early girl tomatoes out of my garden. Since they were on the small side I used four of them.

ok recipe. I won't be making this again, only because my husband won't eat anything with vinegar-ish taste/smell to it.

Very easy and tates fabulous! I pound my chicken down thin and poke it with a fork a few times before marinating. I do spice up the salad dressing a bit with fresh basil and romemary along with some minced garlic and a generous splash of white wine vinegar. I let this marinate for at least four hours. I never refrigerate the tomatoes and left off the dressing just using a little olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Once the chicken came off the grill I topped it with the tomato mixture, fresh basil and some shredded Parmesan and Romano cheese. Great served wtih "Warm Herb Garlic Bread" from this site.

I'm sorry to say that I did not use Wishbone dressing!!!! I used Good Seasons and used balsamic vinegar and olive oil. I marinated my chicken in this for most of the day and then grilled. For the bruschetta, I used very red plum tomatoes that were seeded and fine diced, a huge clove of fresh garlic pressed, fine diced red onion, some sea salt and frsh pepper, fresh basil, and then I added some more of the Good Seasons balsamic Italian dressing. Delicious combo on the grilled chicken! Everyone loved it. Thanks!

I made about half this recipe for two large boneless skinless chicken breast halves. Before marinating the chicken, I seasoned it with garlic salt and pepper and then marinated it for about six hours. The chicken itself was very good and Hubs grilled it to perfection. I made the topping with our garden tomatoes, the red onion and fresh basil. For some reason I didn’t think the topping was all that flavorful. It definitely needed some salt and pepper, but it lacked the pizzazz I was looking for.
