Chicken on the Grill and Our Menu Plan

Jump to recipe!

Well, here we are again, another week has just flown by! Are you enjoying your Summer? Are you staying cool? It’s been pretty hot here, like most everywhere, but not unbearable. Although, I love the heat and the sun, so most of the time, it doesn’t bother me. I have been trying to cook our meals in small sections, cooking Make Ahead Meals like the Sloppy Joes that I shared with you last week not only keeps the temperature down in the kitchen, it also saves on time.

We don’t use our Grill a ton during the Summer, mostly because we have a charcoal grill and by the time Doug gets home during the week, it’s too late to start grilling. I do enjoy firing it up on the weekends though, and I try to grill enough meat for a couple meals.

The Chicken we cooked on the Grill tonight was simple and very tasty. I started with a bag of frozen Chicken breasts from Aldi’s, they are $5.99 per bag and there were 6 really big breasts in the bag. I thawed them, then laid them in a 13×9 and sprinkled them with Lipton Onion Soup Mix, a drizzle of oil and a big splash of Soy Sauce, covered them with plastic wrap and put them in the fridge for about an hour.

We have enough Chicken left over to make the BLT Chicken Salad Sandwiches on Tuesday night.

Here is Our Menu Plan for the rest of the week…

Monday ~ Strawberry Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast, Fruit Smoothies (still haven’t had a chance to try this)

Tuesday ~ BLT Chicken Salad Sandwiches and Pasta Salad

Wednesday ~ BBQ Meatballs, Oven Fries

Thursday ~ Chicken Stir-Fry, Rice

Friday ~ Summer Salad

Saturday ~ Chicken Quesadillas, Chips & Salsa

    This is such a great week… especially Brinner (breakfast for dinner)

  3. We have a Weber grill too. I love it. We grill quite often in the summer. I think I’m going to borrow your chiken recipe for tonight. It looks easy and my boys love chicken.

  4. The chicken looks good. I’m always looking for new ways to marinate my chicken! Thanks!

  5. That looks great. We’d love that. We do tons of marinades around here. We get the chicken breast and boneless skinless thighs from Aldis and love them!
