Cooking Corner

It's almost Memorial Day and with summer just around the corner, most Americans are pulling their grills out of storage (if they haven't already!) and getting them washed down and fired up. Often grills are loaded with a variety of brats, hotdogs, hamburgers and other meats that take little to no preparation and only require buns and a few condiments that are often already on hand. This week's article features Amanda Rodriguez's grilled chicken recipe that is full of wonderful flavor and needs no bread or extra condiments once it's off the grill. With a few of your favorite side dishes, you'll have a wonderful (and healthy!) summertime meal the whole family will enjoy.

The recipe's author, Amanda, grew up in a family that did a lot of summertime grilling. As a young girl, Amanda regularly helped her mother in the kitchen and quickly learned how to prepare whole wheat bread from wheat berries as well as a variety of main dishes and sides for six or more people. She grew to cook right alongside her mother by the age of ten or eleven, quite competent and self-sufficient in the kitchen. One summer as a twelve-year-old, Amanda asked if she could create her own marinade instead of following one of the established recipes. She was given permission, along with instruction to write down the ingredients and amounts of whatever she added to it, just in case they ended up liking it. Now, seven years later, her family is still grilling and enjoying this recipe as their main standby for a marinade. There are likely many other recipe files around the country that contain this recipe as well, as it won fourth runner-up in a Taste of Home recipe contest.
