8 chicken breast tenders
2 cups Italian dressing
I marinated the chicken all day while I was at work. I wanted to make some fancy smancy marinade for it, but I didn't have time and I threw it in a bag with the Italian dressing. I use wishbone if I don't have time to make my own. I was going to grill them, however, that is difficult when you realize you are out of propane. Whoops! Plan B! I cooked 2 pieces of sausage as well, because I didn't know if the chicken would be enough to fill my honey's tummy. I used the grease from that to cook the chicken. I cooked it on pretty high heat, med high maybe? It took maybe 8 minutes to cook them through. I turned the heat to low and put a loose lid on it to keep them hot while I made the mashed potatoes and the crab. They tasted as delicious as they looked and were so tender.
Mashed potatoes are amazing. I think russet potatoes make the absolute worst mashed potatoes. I used yellow potatoes and added just a little roasted garlic, salt, pepper, cream cheese, butter (of course) and some half and half. Pretty simple.
Melt about 1 TBS of butter over high heat, add the crab. Season w salt and pepper, little garlic powder, and cook until starts to brown. Took about 6 minutes. We love real crab and imitation crab so I don't do much to it. We love it just like it is. You may not be so lucky, we have simple tastes.
