8 Maple Leaf Prime® Raised without Antibiotics Bone In Chicken Thighs or Legs

1 cup + ½ cup KRAFT® Zesty Italian Dressing

2 heaping tbsp RENEE’S GOURMET® Caesar Salad Dressing

1 tbsp oregano or 2 sprigs fresh oregano

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tbsp Maple Leaf® Ready Crisp®Fully Cooked Natural Bacon pieces

Place Maple Leaf Prime® chicken in a large zip lock bag with KRAFT® Zesty Italian dressing, herbs and season with salt and pepper. Massage chicken in bag to coat well. Refrigerate for 2 hrs up to 24 hrs.

Preheat one side of grill to medium high heat. Prepare a baking sheet lined with tin foil.

Using tongs place chicken on grill shaking away any residual marinade. Grill chicken for 3 to 4 minutes per side and transfer to baking sheet. Place baking sheet on side of grill that has not been heated. Keep heat on opposite side of grill on.

Close lid and cook on residual heat for 18 to 20 mins or until an internal temperature of 165°F is reached.

Brush chicken with remaining dressing. In a large bowl add lettuce, bacon bits, croutons, RENEE’S GOURMET® Caesar Salad dressing. Toss well to coat. Garnish salad with parmesan cheese and lemon wedges. Serve with chicken.

Tips: Like dressing as much as we do? Use extra RENEE’S GOURMET® Caesar Salad dressing as a side dip for the chicken.
