Looking for a basic chicken marinade

Going to make some grilled chicken breasts and ribs on Sunday for some friends and was looking for a basic chicken marinade to use before I grill 'em and then baste them with some bbq sauce. I looked over the web pretty good, but nothing jumps out at me. Anyone have some suggestions?

    that ever-present bottle of italian dressing.[p]just don't let anyone see, and don't tell-em, neither.

    For straight out of the bottle, take your pick:
    Wishbone Robusto Italiano
    Newman's Own Italian
    Kraft Catalina
    any French, Greek, Caesar or Russian dressing
    Lea & Perrin's Marinade for Chicken (formerly White Worcestershire)
    Nellie & Joe's Mojo Criollo or Cuban marinades
    A-1 Steakhouse Chicken Marinade
    Soy-Vay Very Teryaki
    World Harbors Island Teryaki[p]Or my personal favorite: Take all the labeled and no longer labeled partial bottles of whatever from the fridge that I don't have any idea how long they've been in there, check for mold before pouring over a bag of chicken, shake to mix and squeeze out any air, let it stew overnight. This one has never failed.[p]Cheers,

    I like to use some olive oil, kosher salt, fresh black pepper and some rice wine vinegar as a basic marinade…
