10 quick + easy (grilled) chicken recipes.

Summer is finally here and for me, grilling isn’t something saved just for the weekend. These are some of my favorite recipes that I grill all the time, starting with one of my favorite chicken recipes, tuscan chicken salad. It’s an easy recipe that’s full of really zesty, lemon flavor and the longer it marinates, the better. Grilled lemons add another layer of flavor as well as help garnish the finished salad. It’s a perfectly portable meal that’s great for both a late-day picnic or to take to a party.

Another one of my favorite recipes is grilled chicken skewers with avocado cream. Super quick and easy and perfect for a weeknight dinner or to increase for entertaining. The sauce is nice and creamy and a perfect complement to the smoky flavor of the chicken.

Some of my other go-to recipes include chicken under a brick, a whole chicken marinated overnight and grilled to perfection with enough leftover to nibble on throughout the week; honey-chipotle grilled chicken, a perfect balance of a smoky and sweet sauce; grilled chicken with homemade bbq sauce, because making your own homemade bbq sauce is really easy; bbq mustard-glazed chicken, adding mustard to the marinade gives it an unexpected tangy flavor that I like; for a spicy alternative, try caribbean chicken with mango yogurt sauce (just be sure to serve it with the dipping sauce to cut some of the heat); grilled citrus chicken, a quick and easy marinade that’s loaded with citrus flavor; chicken satay with peanut dipping sauce, a flavorful and easy party appetizer and last by not least, bbq chicken pizza…because well, they just go together.

Those are some of my favorite ways to grill chicken, what are yours?
