It’s grilling season!!! You know, when it’s not raining. We love grilling out in the summer, so we don’t have to heat up the house. And chicken is a staple, so I’m always looking for ways to change it up. I have a few go to marinades and this is one of them. This Southwestern Rub in on the agenda for grilled chicken tonight!
It’s very easy to make and you probably have all the ingredients in the pantry! Marinate 30 minutes before grilling or up to 24 hours before. So you can marinate according to your schedule! It’s flexible! And the flavor is great, but not too spicy, so your kids will eat it, too! Serve it up with some mac and cheese and roasted broccoli and everyone will be happy!
