It’s almost summer and at our house, that means we are firing up the grill and fixing food packed with flavor. This easy recipe was inspired by our partner Tessemae’s All Natural Green Goddess dressing.

When I read how the Vetter brothers, Greg, Brian and Matt, launched the brand in 2009 at their local Whole Foods Market in Annapolis, Maryland, using the simple recipe their mom used throughout their childhood. It took me back to the homemade salad dressings my Grandma Jana use to make. I loved all the flavors and how it really made my salad pop with taste.

Tessemae’s All Natural is committed to healthy eating and living, it’s, in fact, the core of their mission: to provide simple, yet delicious food to consumers made with real ingredients.

My husband is our Master Griller and he out did himself on this Green Goddess Chicken.

The recipe is crazy easy.

Tessemae’s All Natural Green Goddess Grilled Chicken

History of the Dish: The Green Goddess dressing has a rich culinary history that dates back to the 1920s. It was originally created at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco to honor the hit play “The Green Goddess.” The dressing typically features a base of mayonnaise, sour cream, anchovies, tarragon, chives, parsley, and other seasonings. In this modern twist, Tessemae’s All Natural Green Goddess dressing provides a healthier and convenient version for marinating and grilling chicken.

Different Versions: While the classic Green Goddess dressing traditionally contains dairy and anchovies, Tessemae’s offers an alternative version that is dairy-free, gluten-free, and suitable for various dietary preferences. This recipe focuses on utilizing Tessemae’s All Natural Green Goddess dressing as a marinade and sauce.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (approximately 600g)
  • 1 bottle (approx. 10 oz) Tessemae’s All Natural Green Goddess Salad Dressing (approximately 295 ml)


  1. Gently pound the chicken breasts using a meat tenderizer to ensure even thickness.
  2. In a 13″x9″ pan, pour enough Tessemae’s All Natural Green Goddess dressing to cover the bottom.
  3. Place the pounded chicken breasts in the pan, arranging them over the dressing.
  4. Pour the remaining contents of the bottle of Tessemae’s All Natural Green Goddess dressing over the chicken breasts.
  5. Cover the pan with a lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight, allowing the flavors to meld.
  6. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  7. Remove the marinated chicken breasts from the pan, allowing excess dressing to drip off.
  8. Grill the chicken breasts until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C), ensuring they are cooked through.
  9. Serve the grilled chicken hot, garnished with fresh herbs if desired.

Expert Tips:

  • Pounding the chicken breasts helps them cook more evenly and allows the marinade to penetrate effectively.
  • Reserve a small portion of the dressing before marinating to use as a drizzle or sauce when serving.
  • If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for about 30 minutes before grilling to prevent burning.

Storage and Leftovers:

    • Store any leftover grilled chicken in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
    • Use the leftover chicken in salads, sandwiches, wraps, or as a protein addition to pasta dishes.

The chicken was incredibly moist, loaded with flavor, the kiddos each begged for seconds and then “can we have it again, tomorrow?”

Tessemae’s All Natural is also a delicious dressing for salads.
