Grilled Marinated Chicken Breasts

This is another recipe that we’ve been making forever….

Except, somewhere along the way, we forgot about it.

We started making more complicated marinades and doing fussy things with the humble chicken breast.

I resurrected this recipe earlier this week and we both agreed that we should have it at least once a week for the rest of the summer.

Silly how one can forget the really good things.

Also silly how one can forget to pay attention when making changes to one’s computer but that’s a (long) story for another day…. when I have my mind back.

That’s all for this day…..

I have a frazzled brain, there is a storm coming in which means I have to shut everything down and I need to pick the lettuce for dinner before all that hits.

I’m pretty sure it’s almost wine O-Clock

  1. Wine O’clock. Because it’s always Five O’clock somewhere.

    Nice, simple recipe. I’ve forgotten a few simple recipes I used to do often as well and am now getting back to them again.
