Food Allergy Friendly Recipe
Just in time for grilling season, I'll share one of our favorite chicken marinade recipes. I throw the chicken breasts in a container or zip-top bag with these ingredients as soon as I buy them. After I add the other ingredients, I make sure I grill (baking works too) them that day or the next. If not, it all goes in the freezer for an easy yummy meal another time.
