Marinated for hours in a flavorful lime cilantro marinade and then thrown onto the grill, this extra-juicy chicken delivers a punch of irresistible summer flavors!
Let it be SATURDAY.
A to the AMEN. This weekend cannot even last long enough.
So you’re probably wondering what the deal is. ‘Yo, Sarah! It’s Saturday! You never post on a Saturday, what gives? Today I do, because tomorrow is Father’s Day and I could not even wait 10 more seconds to share this chicken with you. Also, uhhh mostly because I don’t know about you, but Father’s Day here is basically ALL about the meat and I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to share this chicken with y’all.
The time is NOW. This one’s for all the dads out there but specifically to mine because if there’s one thing my dad loves, it’s chicken.
Okay, so I promise I’ll try to keep today’s post short, sweet and Sarah chatter-less. It’s the weekend and we’ve got lots of relaxing that needs to get done.
Oh, and spending time with our dads! Unfortunately I have to work all day tomorrow so I’m gonna miss the Father’s Day cookout my mom is planning and hanging out with Dad which I’m not too thrilled about. So yeah. Lots of Saturday laziness in effect here today since I only get half of a weekend.
That’s all in the chatter-chatter department for today guys. Let’s talk about the one thing that I DEMAND makes it on your grill this weekend.
Extra-juicy, ultra-flavorful chicken that takes a nice long swim in a lime-cilantro marinade then gets slapped on the grill and kinda ends up being the hit of the whole cookout.
And ultimately makes you look like a total BOSS in the grilling department.
Yeah, that’s this chicken, friends. I am crushing here in a big-time kinda way.
Maybe it’s the green-themed marinade that got me. Yep, that’s probably it. Lime + cilantro = flavor explosion AND eyeballs-fall-out-from-the-
