Summer Grilling Series
Summer is coming to an end. 🙁 I may have mentioned before (like a gazillion times) that it’s my favorite season. Luckily, even with the temperatures beginning to cool, it’s still grilling season at our house for a bit yet.

Garlic Lime Chicken Breasts
When you’re ready to eat… fire up that grill. The cook time is only about 10 minutes unless your chicken breasts are super thick. I typically fillet mine, and that helps them cook more evenly. Here are some tips for grilling perfection.
You can also prep the marinade, toss it all together on the chicken in a zip lock bag and freeze it for a later date. Let it thaw in the fridge, and walaah! Dinner is made. I come from a family of Magicians, you’d think I could use a better word that ‘wa-laah’. Abracadabra? Presto? What’s your favorite magic word? 😀
- Make a double batch, cook one, freeze one. A great way to stock your freezer!
