{Grilled Key West Chicken Breasts}

Monday, April 15, 2013

 Ok, here's the deal. We eat this chicken often in the spring and  summer. I use it sliced and put on top of salads, shredded and used in sandwiches and sometimes even cold , right out of the refrigerator in the mornings for breakfast. This recipe came from allrecipes and I use it as my go to marinade for grilled chicken. Although my husband hates grilling chicken. He says it takes too long and he doesn't get that smoky, beefy smell that he associates with beef. :( But he stops complaining when he tastes it. Works every time!
