Raspberry Chicken Recipe

You’ll need:
3-4 skinless chicken breasts
1 1/3 cup raspberry vinaigrette salad dressing
fresh raspberries and chives for garnish

To make:
Pour 1 cup vinaigrette into a bowl or zip top bag and add chicken. Let sit for an hour or up to overnight, turning frequently to coat chicken. Remove chicken breasts and discard dressing. Grill or saute chicken breasts until no longer pink inside, basting frequently with some of the 1/3 cup vinaigrette. When chicken is done, remove and plate, and drizzle with leftover vinaigrette. Garnish with raspberries and chives if desired.
