Garlic, Lemon and Herb Rubbed Chicken — Weekend Cookout

by in Recipes, August 26th, 2011

garlic lemon and herb chicken thighs
This summer, Food Network’s Grilling Central is packed with recipes for the entire family’s taste buds, boasting the best in burgers, dogs, chicken and more all season long. But with so many recipes, where do you start? Each Friday, FN Dish is giving you a complete menu that is stress-free, and for dinner this weekend, we’re ditching the barbecue sauce and marinating chicken in fresh herbs, garlic and lemon juice.

If you’re looking for a budget-friendly meal on the grill, purchase chicken legs — they’ll also cook up faster. While the total cook time for these babies is more than two hours, that is inactive time — time that the chicken is soaking up the flavor of the marinade in the refrigerator. Once the chicken is placed on the grill, dinner will be on the table in less than 30 minutes.

Easy Chicken Salad for Lunch — Recipe of the Day

by in Recipes, August 24th, 2011

chicken salad with fresh herbs
Chicken salad from the local deli never tends to be as good as homemade, and you also won’t get 4-6 servings out of the container you purchased. When making this recipe, don’t throw out the leaves on top of the celery stalks. Instead, incorporate them into the salad.

Editor’s note: If you don’t like avocados or have them handy, place chicken salad in lettuce cups or between bread.
