Marinated Cold Chicken and Veggies

This is a dish my mom came up with that is so great in the summertime.  (I already consider it summer here!)  This is a healthy dish, an easy dish, and one that's great for leftovers for a second night!

Serves 4 (or 2 people plus leftovers)


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 Cups slightly cooked broccoli
1 1/2 Cups slightly cooked green beans
1 1/2 Cups diced tomatoes
1 Cup sliced black olives
1 packet Good Seasons brand Italian Dressing (use instructions on packet for how to make dressing)


Season chicken with olive oil, salt and pepper, and bake at 350 for 30 minutes until cooked thoroughly.

In a pot, boil water.  Drop in broccoli and green beans and cook for no more than 30 seconds, then drain and rinse with cold water.  (You want them to be slightly cooked but still crunchy).

Line in a 9x13" pan the chicken, then green beans, then tomatoes, then broccoli, and then olives.  Drizzle entire carafe of Good Seasons dressing and cover and chill in refrigerator.  Serve when ready!


  1. Also, I sprinkle in some Salad Supreme seasoning. Feel free to add/substitute veggies. I included zucchini this time, and previously I've used cooked baby new potatoes. Such a refreshing, light tasty dish on a hot evening!

  2. Sounds divine...I will try it.
