Good Eats | Get the Memorial Marinade Ready – 3 Easy Grilled Chicken Recipes To Try + Slow Cooker Recipes


weekenddinner6

Happy are those that get to celebrate a 4-day weekend! Memorial Day… which means it’s about time to dish out the meat for marinating and seasoning prep — and can’t leave out the fresh asparagus, zucchini, squash, & broccoli for grilling too. Keep those close by. I have not tried these grilled chicken dishes, (and you’re probably thinking “why chicken?”) I chose these three… 1.) Because I don’t eat anything else but chicken & seafood. 2.) Enough of the boring traditional grilled chicken 3.) Don’t the pictures look mesmerizing?  Enjoy!
