Let's Make It
Mix all ingredients except chicken until blended; pour into large freezer-weight resealable plastic bag. Add chicken. Press bag to remove as much air as possible, then seal bag.
Freeze up to 3 months.
Heat greased grill to medium heat. Remove chicken from bag; discard bag and dressing mixture.
Grill chicken 10 to 12 min. on each side or until done (165ºF).
These tasty marinated chicken breasts can instead be baked in the oven. Heat oven to 350ºF. Remove frozen chicken breasts from the bag; place on rimmed baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Discard bag and dressing mixture. Bake chicken 30 min. or until done (165°F).
Sprinkle evenly with 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro before serving.
This smart Southwest-style entrée features lean poultry in a tasty marinade. And since it goes straight from the freezer to the grill, it makes the perfect dish to serve as part of a quick weeknight meal.
