Chicken – one of our favorite meals around here, we love it any which way!
Now that it is BBQ season, it is the only way to cook our chicken – I love grilled chicken breasts, (bone in or boned), kebabs, done in foil packets and of course, the famous beer can chicken (although ours isn’t really in a beer can, we have a special stand).
Chicken is such a fast and nutritious meal to prepare [it also one I know my daughter won’t balk at!]. So I know that my family is being fed well; both white and dark meat are nutritious and a great source of protein, niacin, phosphorous, B6, B12, Vitamin D, calcium, iron and zinc.
There are so many different ways of preparing chicken, being able to BBQ adds a new level to it.
If I am running out or busy, I know that I can prepare the chicken with a sauce in foil packet and it is ready to go on the BBQ when my husband gets home and they don’t have to take any special precautions when handling because I have taken care of all that! [makes me worry a lot less!].
