Marinade boneless skinless Chicken breast in Fat Free Italian dressing for an hour or so.
Cook chicken however you prefer, I usually grill it or put it in the crock pot.
After cooked, cut into small pieces. I use baugettes for the bread and top the chicken with more Italian dressing. Served warm. It's a great sandwich and my kids loved it!
Oh, that's similar to what I do. We get food from Schwan's (some of you may have heard of them, some not) and I always buy the mesquite chicken breasts. I cook one of those on my George Foreman grill and turn it into a grilled chicken sandwich with whatever toppings I'm in the mood for. Onions, spinach, lettuce, honey mustard, etc.

can you tell me what there's inside an italian dressing?
i'm really curious...:D
Are you making a funny or asking an actual question?

no no, actual question...cause i have no idea about what an italian dressing sauce is made of: is it a tomato sauce?or a cream sauce?or what else?

Pavellina is from Italy, which is why she asked ;)
What Americans (and Australians for that matter) call an Italian dressing is like a viniagrette (vinegar and olive oil) mixed with diced vegetables like red pepper, onion and celery. It's a bit thicker than a French viniagrette, and probably nothing like what you would have on a salad in Italy!

oh thank you!:D
in italy we use to mix salad only with a little salt, extravirgin oil and winegar if you like.
i live in the zone of production of balsamic winegar so i often use it but it's bloody expensive(even if you need just few drops)about 50$ for 100ml...
but you see it's at least 12 years old so it worth...
but i must say it's really different from the balsamic winegar you usually find in the supermarket in italy or abroad, it's sweet, almost like caramel, infacts here many restaurants serve the real balsamic on cream ice cream as dessert...

So is that Modena that you live near? I'd love to taste real balsamic vinegar. I just buy the cheaper stuff in the supermarket! I have had it on strawberries though, it's lovely like that.
I like salad a lot better dressed traditionally like that. I bought some pumpkin seed oil the other day, and that was lovely.

yes i'm under bologna province but i'm very near to the borderline next to modena.
it's a nice place!
i don't love strawberryes, but if you can try balsamic onto pieces of parmesan...it's great!
