I have been super thrilled to add new contributors to Sweet C’s, and I’ve been working on one very special contributor to join the team for a while.

You’ve seen his recipes here a few times, and might have even caught a glimpse of his face…. but I’m SO SO SO excited to announce my husband Luke is going to be adding recipes to the site more frequently!

Luke is a fantastic cook. He is masterful when it comes to meats, veggies, and all sorts of ethnic dishes- but like many men, his best work is done on the grill.

Today Luke’s sharing his deliciously juicy, tender, and super flavorful grilled chicken strips recipe with us – you’ll love this easy method to make salad-ready chicken strips that make a fabulous cold lunch!

I love delicious, fresh salads for lunch – and salads I can eat cold are the best.

This simple technique for making juicy, flavorful, never-dry grilled chicken strips is my favorite easy meal- I grill up a big batch on Sunday, and bring them to work with some lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and dressing for a quick, protein-packed, but healthy lunch that doesn’t need to be microwaved.

These chicken strips are so easy – simply marinate for about a day before grilling to ensure the most delicious, flavorful, and never-dry meat.

  • 2 lb chicken sliced into thin strips
  • 12 oz Italian dressing 12oz
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce


  • Cut chicken breasts into 2″ thick strips, making sure they are fairly even.
  • Put strips in a large zip bag and cover with Italian dressing and soy sauce.
  • Gently squeeze the air out of the bag.
  • Shake bag so all the chicken is covered with dressing.
  • Place the bag in a bowl and refrigerate overnight.
  • Pre-heat and clean grill- rubbing 1/2 an onion on the hot grill cleans and flavors the grates.
  • Cook chicken on medium heat until 165 internal temperature.
  • Enjoy when hot, or refrigerate and use for s sack-lunch.

    Not sure if charring them so badly is a good idea though, other than that, great recipe! Thank you!

    1. Ken says:

      You have to marinate for a day! You need to add that in the prep time20 minutes is not the prep time. Please be transparent.

      1. Courtney ODell says:

        So the marinating time is 30 minutes up to overnight.

  2. Andrea O. says:

    I’m guessing the soy sauce goes in with the dressing??

  3. Samantha says:

    Do you put the soy sauce in the bag with the dressing.
