"Chicken on Hangers"

3-4 Chicken breasts, boneless/skinless
1 lb. bacon slices, cut into thirds
1 bottle Zesty Italian salad dressing (You can use Fat-Free too)

Cut chicken breasts into 1" strips. Pour salad dressing into a gallon-sized ziploc bag and put chicken into bag. Seal and refrigerate overnight. (When you are ready to make your skewers, I would recommend bamboo - these are called "chicken on hangers" because my uncle made them for his family and didn't have bamboo skewers so he used coat hangers.) Weave a piece of chicken on the skewer and alternate with a 1/3 slice of bacon until skewer is filled. Grill or broil. These are a little bit of work, but worth it. The taste is great! (If you don't have time for skewers, just marinate the chicken breasts in the Zesty Italian and grill. I usually give them 2 days in the marinade if the breast is left whole) These skewers are great when served with the Easy Rice Pilaf.
