“I am almost too embarrassed to post this because of its simplicity, but my family loves it. I always used to marinate chicken in Italian Dressing and one day I realized I was out so I grabbed a bottle of Newman's Own Light Lime Vinaigrette instead because it's all I had on hand (and it's 50% less fat and 52% fewer calories than regular dressing). WOW. The lime adds a wonderful "zing" to the chicken. Two ingredients. Can't get much easier than that. Tastes great served with couscous (use some of the juices atop the couscous) and a green veggie. I plan to try this method on chicken kabobs on the grill in the summer months.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 ounces newman's own light lime vinaigrette dressing
  • 8 -10 chicken thighs (with bone and skin)


  1. Wash chicken thighs and pat dry. Place the chicken skin side up in a shallow baking dish and pour the dressing over the chicken. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for a minimum of an hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Retaining the marinade, cook the chicken, uncovered, for 45 to 60 minutes (to desired doneness).
