Grill Alert---chicken--

Yes, I know absent I have been. Busy I have been.
Those of you who know me know I hate to waste. I had some boneless skinless breasts in dire need of grilling. (I've been on a grilling kick). I marinated them in Marzetti's coleslaw dressing and black pepper overnight. I know crazy you say. I grilled them the next evening after removing the excessive marinade. They were AMAZING--so moist. I served them with seasoned salt and bbq sauce. I am making a concerted effort to desalt. So, many times I salt after cooking only, not before.

Grilled Chicken Thighs--I've discovered thighs. So here is how it goes. Remove skin from thighs--I used my kitchen shears. Marinate in Light Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing and black pepper overnight. Grill the next evening. Superb! Very Asiany--if you are in to those flavors. I grilled them on Medium heat for 6 minutes a side. Remember it takes dark meat longer to cook than white. Thank goodness for thighs!

Third, if you do not own an electric smoker---PURCHASE ONE NOW!! Ladies and gents, its an outside crock pot. I've been on a smoking kick lately too. More on that later! E
