There are 3 million chicken recipes on the internet. We're here to show you the good ones. Win, win.
Today: A chicken dinner for beautiful weeknights when not grilling just isn't an option.
In the summertime, all we want to do is grill—throw a couple burgers on the rack, grab a beer, and soak up the sun. But far too often, our grills end up gathering dust during the week when burgers feel too luxurious, and "quick and easy" takes precedence over summertime activities.
Enter: An incredibly quick grilled chicken that takes as little as 15 minutes of cook and prep time. Before you leave work, just throw it in a zipper bag to marinate in the refrigerator (you probably already have all of the ingredients), then plop it on the grill for 10 minutes when you're ready to eat. And since the cook time is so short, there will even be some sunlight left to enjoy while you eat. Way to grab summer by the horns.
