“I went to the local deli purchased boneless, skinless chicken breast! Wanted to make some kraut, so I threw this together not knowing the outcome until I was finished! It turned out much, much better than expected.Try it and I think you will agree! Try this Thousand Island Dressing from one of our fellow chef's! Graybert the recipe number is 100355. You will not buy Thousand Island Dressing in a store again after trying this.”

  2. Rinse the chicken breast very well under cold water, pat dry.Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl, season both sides of the breast with all the spices. Grill for 10-15 minutes or until juices begin to run clear, remove from grill.

Put the chicken breast on top of the kraut.Add the rest of the kraut on top of the chicken breast. Depending on how much you like the taste of the thousand island dressing, spread it across the top layer of the kraut.Bake for 45-60 minutes covered.
