it's grilling season!

The long, brutal winter is behind us, the birds are chirping and the grass is green. It’s time to roll the grill out of the garage, dust it off and do some home grilling!


There are so many awesome benefits of outdoor cooking!

• Vegetables on the grill are better for you!

• Meat Retains Nutrients

• Use less butter & oil

• Grilling goes with outside activities! Make it a fun night with your family and friends where you can spread out and enjoy the beautiful weather!

Grilled chicken breasts can be the epitome of boring. Too often they're dried out or rubbery. But when soaked in a super-quick marinade — with balsamic, brown sugar, and dried thyme — you're guaranteed deliciousness.

3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

2 tbsp. brown sugar

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 tsp. dried thyme

1 tsp. dried rosemary

4 chicken breasts

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

Freshly chopped parsley, for garnish


DIRECTIONS

In a medium bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, olive oil, brown sugar, garlic, and dried herbs, and season generously with salt and pepper. Reserve ¼ cup. Add chicken to the bowl and toss to combine. Let marinate at least 20 minutes and up to overnight. Preheat grill to medium high. Add chicken and grill, basting with reserved marinade, until cooked through, 6 minutes per side. Garnish with parsley before serving.
