Enjoy this holiday weekend with these delicious recipes.

BBQ Chicken 


  • Chicken breasts
  • BBQ sauce


Cut the breasts in half to create more consistent portion sizes.  Flatten the breasts by pounding them with a rolling pin or meat tenderizer until they are an even thickness. Heat your grill to 400 and place the chicken on the grate. Cook for 4-5 minutes a side or until the thermometer reads 165.  While the chicken cooks brush the breasts with BBQ sauce on both sides until evenly coated to taste.

Remove from the heat, check to make sure there is no remaining pinkness on the interior, and serve!
