Chipotle Lime Grilled Chicken #grillon
Summer to me means firing up the grill and when it comes to dinner 9 times out of 10 I will be using the grill. As a child my dad frequently grilled. Sun, Snow, Rain, it never stopped him from breaking out the grill. Some of my favorite foods are prepared that way so when I got my first grill I couldn't wait to fire up some of my favorites, although my first grilling experience was far from ideal. I love grilled chicken and my first attempt at making my favorite recipe didn't go as planned. I was newly married and couldn't wait to use my new gas grill. As soon as I started cooking the chicken things immediately went downhill. I placed the chicken on the grill and went inside to finish up some other things in the house and come back outside a few minutes later to a horrible flare up. I basically singed the entire outside f my chicken leaving it inedible. Lesson learned. Grilling takes patience. Never leave your chicken unattended and never grill it over the highest heat possible! Thankfully, over the years I have gotten much better at grilling. Even perfecting that favorite recipe from years ago. Today, I'm sharing that with you! #grillon
