Best Grilled Chicken

Plate of grilled chicken breast by grill.

While we haven't tried all the grilled chicken marinades out there, we can say that this one is pretty darn good. Vinegar, mustard and garlic come together with citrus and a little brown sugar to make a marinade that hits on a lot of notes, especially when combined with the smokiness of the grill. If desired, save some in a separate, clean container before pouring the remainder over the raw chicken to marinate. Once the chicken comes off the grill, pour the saved marinade over for more flavor!

Grilled Vegetables

Do you need a side dish to throw on the grill with your protein of choice for a weeknight meal? Want something filling to help round out that summer cookout? This recipe fills the need for a perfect, nutritious side that’s flavorful, especially if you add peppers and squash from your own garden or local farmers market.

Beef and Potato Kabobs

This recipe is sure to satisfy on a warm evening where it's too hot to use the stove and you want meat and vegetables all done at once. The steak sauce makes a deliciously savory coating that enhances the flavors of everything, from the beef to the zucchini. Microwaving the potatoes before hand not only makes it easy to skewer them, but also expedites the cooking time.

Grilled Fish Tacos with Peach Salsa

This recipe takes a perfectly seasoned fish fillet, pairs it with a salsa that’s sweet, has notes of citrus and has some punch from onion and jalapeno, then wraps it in a warm tortilla for a dish that screams grilling and summer.

Fruit Smoothie

The classic smoothie is a sneaky way to get greens into your diet, and this one pairs strawberries and bananas together for a timeless flavor profile. By adding milk and yogurt, it ups the protein and calcium for a refreshing drink you can take on the go. Of course, we encourage using whatever fresh or frozen fruit you have on hand to create your own smoothie adventure.

Tuna Salad

Feel free to freestyle with apples, add shredded carrots or serve on crackers, tortillas or bread to make it work for what you have on hand. It’s also an easy beginner recipe for kids and teens to make for lunches and afterschool snacks!

Breakfast Scramble

It’s been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but we also happen to think it’s the tastiest as well. This recipe is a great start to your day, and has nutritious and tasty building blocks to start from. Feel free to enjoy with eggs anyway you like them; we scrambled four right in at the end of the recipe.
