We have found that grilling for us really cuts down on the amount of time it takes to get dinner on the table. I try to have the meat pounded down and marinating (if necessary) early in the morning so that by the time we are all home for dinner it is putting together a salad (have all your veggies chopped for a couple day and it takes less time), a side dish, and a vegetable dish. With the family helping this can be done in as little as 30 minutes if you have a plan.
This didn’t photograph well at all but it tasted great. This is the inside of the chicken the ham got a bit burnt on the end as it wasn’t tucked in as it should be. Oops.
We had chicken breasts out for dinner and didn’t know quite what we wanted to do with them. I like mixing things up so the family doesn’t get tired of one meat several days in a row but with us grilling I was getting a bit lazy and just marinating the meat (which tasted great) but you still feel like you are eating the same dish with different sides after awhile.
The family liked this simple change and it didn’t add any time to our meal!
