Italian Marinade

1/2 c. Italian salad dressing (Make sure it is gluten, dairy and soy free)
1/4 t salt
1/4 c lemon juice
1/8 t pepper
1 t oregano

Mix thoroughly and use either as a marinade or a basting sauce.  I will use this to marinade chicken breasts that will alter be done on the grill.  I have even marinated chicken breasts overnight and then frozen them in the sauce.  I have heard that this is also a great marinade for white fish or shrimp.  I plan on using this recipe over the summer.

Camping Menu Tip:  Right before leaving for the camping trip, place the frozen chicken breasts in the bottom of the cooler and pile the ice on top of it.  Continue to pile ice on top of the chicken breasts to keep them frozen until about a day before you plan on cooking them.  Move the package to the top of the cooler which allows them to thaw out enough for cooking but stay cold enough to be safe.  :)
