It’s time to pull out those grills and get things cookin’ in the outdoors!  I love the summer and summer BBQ’s with friends and family are the best. You’ll love this recipe just as much as I do because it’s so simple to make!  Just throw the chicken and marinade ingredients in a baggie and let it do the soak thing for a couple of hours and grill!  If you feel like adding the sauce on top, it’s quick and easy to make too!   The chicken is great all by itself though so try it both ways~  all saucy or no sauce sometimes too 🙂   You’ll love it both ways.
