We often will soak chicken breasts in Kraft Zesty Italian (or any Italian) dressing overnight (in the fridge) and grill it the next day. It usually gives the meat a slight flavor, which is nice.

However, I recently made the decision to start freezing the chicken in the marinade.  That way I could grab a bag of frozen chicken and by the time it thawed, it was already marinated and ready to go.  It started out mostly as a time saver, since the chicken freezes to the freezer bag, which meant I had to wait until the chicken thawed to pour in the dressing.

However, from the very first time we used one of the "flavored" bags of chicken, I discovered that this REALLY lets the meat soak up the flavor of the marinade.

So, if you know that you like it a certain way, just go on and mix your marinade and freeze your meat in it.  It saves time and effort later on and will REALLY have a delicious flavor.  I use this for both chicken and steak and it is such a flavor burst- yum yum!
