I know I've talked about how I love to shop at my local Giant Eagle Market District before! I love that it's a one-stop shopping destination for everything I needed to put my Easy Broccoli Pasta Salad together and that it's got a great selection of store-made burgers so I can easily make my Korean BBQ Burgers with Kimchi Cucumbers. But, my shopping just got a whole lot easier with the introduction of their new service...Curbside Express!

Why you should try Curbside Express:

  • Ordering online is so easy! 
  • You don't have to be afraid to order items that require a human touch such as produce and fresh meats, because you actually get a real-live personal shopper who does your shopping for you...just like you would do for yourself! 
  • You stay in control of your order the entire time. You start by going to the Giant Eagle Curbside Express website.  Once you set up your account and choose your store you can start shopping. (Don't forget to include your Giant Eagle Advantage card so you can get your fuel perks!) 
  • You can shop from Giant Eagle Recipes (like I did!), by departments, or you can search an item you are looking for! 
  • Once you've made your selections and are ready to check out, you decide whether you want to pay now or pay in-store (your personal shopper will take care of payments right at your vehicle when you arrive!) 
  • You choose a half hour time slot that fits your schedule to pick your order up! 
  • Pick up was really easy! 

My Personal Experience with Curbside Express

When I arrived during my chosen time slot, I pulled right up to a bay specifically marked for Curbside Express. Once I was in the bay, I used my cell to dial the number on the sign and gave them my name.

My personal shopper came out within minutes with all of my items.  You don't have to be afraid to order big, bulky items either, because your shopper will come right to your vehicle and load it in for you. Oh how I would have loved this service when my kids were babies! I didn't even need to leave my vehicle to get my order.

My order was 100% correct because my personal shopper took the time to double check everything as she loaded it into my van. Overall, I was really happy with my Curbside Express service and will definitely use it again. 

How to Make Italian BBQ Grilled Chicken

So what did I do with my loot?  Make this easy grilled chicken recipe.

It just doesn't get much easier than this 3-ingredient (4, if you count salt and pepper) easy grilled chicken recipe! The original recipe didn't call for basting the chicken as it cooked, but I added that step for extra flavor and to help keep the chicken breasts from burning on the grill.

Boneless, skinless chicken breasts are marinaded in BBQ sauce and Italian dressing for an easy and tasty grilled main dish!


  • 2 - 3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 cups bottled BBQ sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups bottled Italian style salad dressing
  • salt and pepper, to your liking, optional


  1. Combine 1 cup Barbecue Sauce and 1 cup Italian Dressing in a gallon sized plastic zipper bag.
  2. Add chicken pieces to the bag and close. Make sure chicken is covered in mixture. Place in refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. (Overnight is better!)
  3. Heat grill to med-high. In small bowl, combine remaining 1/2 cup Barbecue Sauce and 1/2 cup Italian Dressing.
  4. Remove chicken pieces and place on preheated grill. (you can season with salt and pepper at this point if you like) Discard leftover marinade.
  5. Cook on one side until chicken turns white on underside (about 6-7 min.) turn chicken and baste with barbecue sauce-dressing mixture. Continue to cook, turning frequently so the chicken doesn't burn and coating with more sauce mixture until chicken is done and the internal temperature taken with an instant read thermometer is 165 degrees F in the thickest portion of the meat.
  6. Place on serving platter and allow to rest for 3 minutes. Discard any leftover basting mixture.
