If you can't stand the heat...

...get out of the kitchen! We've reached that time of year when 90% of our meals are prepared on the grill. With that in mind, please enjoy a Weekly Menu filled with some of our favorite grilled or no-cook meals.

Did you know you can grill practically anything? Burgers and salmon are pretty obvious, but caprese sandwiches? Yup! Even pizza? You bet! Just put your pizza stone right on the grill rack and crank up the heat as high as it can go! Then try grilling the romaine for this chopped salad for a unique twist. Or blister the tomatoes before tossing them into this "raw" pasta sauce. You won't regret it. Promise.

Have a wonderful week at the grill!

Honey Lime Chicken

 
Honey Lime Chicken I had been messing around with these ingredients for months and at 9:30 one morning I finally got it right! (Yes, I was grilling at 9:30 a.m. and eating chicken as my second breakfast.) This chicken tastes great with a romaine salad and a side of corn, or sliced and turned into tacos with rice and beans.

    can this be done in the oven or just the grill?

    This was delicious and very easy to throw together, which is a big plus for me with 2 small children. My husband is on a strict diet for health issues and so this really worked well with his restrictions as well. I realized I was going to make this late in the day, and so didn't have time to marinate for the suggested amount of time. I decided to go for it anyway. I marinated it for about an hour with small skinless boneless chicken breasts and it tasted great. I can only imagine what it would be like if I had the chance to let it marinate longer. Definitely one to do again and again. I served it with roasted vegetables and a very simple spinach salad.

    I love this marinade! It's so convenient because I always have these Ingredients at home. So delicious, just the right amount of spicy kick!

    @ Monica: I was in a time crunch so I pounded the chicken to 1/4 in thickness and broiled on high for 9-10 minutes. I thought it worked well. It was probably not as tasty (or pretty) as it would have been grilled, but my family enjoyed it and it was a quick fix.
