Honey Dijon Grilled Chicken Sandwiches should be on your menu this week!  It’s sweet from honey, tangy from mustard, salty from bacon, and a little earthy / nutty from cheese.  Pair it with some juicy, tender chicken and sandwich it between a pretzel bun or brioche bun and you have the perfect meal.  It’s simple to make, is packed with flavor, and will please everyone at the dinner table. The recipe can be found here. Start by making the sauce.  Add the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, honey, Dijon mustard, and salt to a mixing bowl.  Whisk to combine.  Taste and adjust the seasoning, if needed, and set aside.

Once the chicken … Continue reading

A previous blog of mine for White BBQ Sauce Grilled Chicken discusses a wonderful condiment – White BBQ Sauce.  Another recipe I created using the same BBQ sauce is for a White BBQ Sauce Grilled Chicken Flatbread.  It’s absolutely divine!  The White BBQ Sauce is tangy, zesty, and pairs well with grilled meat…or in this case, acts as a great pizza sauce 🙂 This flatbread recipe is simple to make and can be customized to any taste.  I like to use chicken, cheese, red onion, and green onion.  You can omit or add any items.  Try adding mushrooms or green pepper, chopped bacon, you name it!  Or skip any item if you have a pickier eater on your hands 🙂 The recipe for the White BBQ Sauce can be found here.

If you’ve never had White BBQ Sauce, you are missing out!  It’s delicious and worth trying!  It has a zesty, tangy, mayonnaise-y base that is combined with vinegar, mustard, and spices.  It’s a very popular condiment in Alabama from what I hear. One thing I love about this recipe is it makes enough to use between multiple recipes and have some to save for later.  You can also play around with the flavors until you find your favorite combination – swap in a different mustard or vinegar, add different seasonings, etc.  I pair the White BBQ Sauce with grilled chicken most frequently, which is the recipe I want to share with you today. The recipe can be found here. Start by making the BBQ sauce.  Add the mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt, pepper, sugar, garlic, and horseradish to a bowl and whisk to combine.  This recipe makes about 4 cups of … Continue reading

Grilled Chicken Caprese is an Italian-inspired chicken dish that is perfect for summer!  It’s made with tender, juicy chicken that’s topped with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and a lovely balsamic glaze.  This dish can be prepared in a variety of ways, but my preference is to grill it. The recipe can be found here. Start by preheating a grill pan over medium-high heat.  Spray with cooking spray.  You can also use your outdoor grill if you prefer. Combine the Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Season both sides of the chicken. Grill for 6-7 minutes on each side or until cooked through and an internal temperature of 165 degrees F is reached. Top each piece of chicken with a slice of fresh mozzarella cheese.  Loosely place tin foil over the grill pan to act as a cover to melt the cheese (or close your actual grill over to … Continue reading

Beer Can Whole Grilled Chicken is a fun way to cook chicken.  You need a beer can chicken stand to do this.  The stand along with the can of beer and chicken legs helps support the chicken on the grill, and the beer helps keep the chicken moist while grilling.  I don’t taste a lot of beer flavor in the chicken but if this is a concern of yours, you could easily swap out the beer for a can of pop – any cola flavor will work well.  Coca Cola or Dr Pepper seem to be the most popular, but I bet you could get a hint of citrus flavor if you used Mountain Dew. The recipe can be found here. Preheat the grill to 350 – 375 degrees F.  If you have an upper rack in your grill, remove it before preheating because the chicken will not fit with … Continue reading

Laura and I recently went camping with the family up on the North Shore and found ourselves making a fun variety of quick and simple yet delicious recipes!  We made a fair amount of food, so I’ll just hit you with the highlights. We arrived mid afternoon on a chilly/rainy day and after setting up camp and taking a short hike, it was time to make dinner.  We kept it pretty simple by grilling chicken with a side dish, where we sautéed potatoes, carrots, and onions in butter.  After eating dinner (and enjoying a few beverages) we were all ready for bed.   Breakfast was again, fairly simple with eggs, bacon and toast.  I had the enormously difficult task of buttering the bread, I’m like a surgeon with that knife.   After breakfast it was time for another hike, and fortunately, though a little damp outside, the rain held off. Then it … Continue reading
