coconut-lime grilled chicken

June 10, 2010

Yessssssss. It’s June. It’s SUMMER in two weeks!! And the grill is out in full force. Hell yes, it is. Do you love grilling, or are you more of an indoors kind of person? I am all about the outdoor eating extravaganza (picnics, grilling, street food) so long as there is appropriate preparation. Do we have napkins? Condiments? Appropriate utensils? Margaritas? Ok, then we’re good to go.

If you’re a grill person then this is for you. If you’re not, well, no doubt I’ll be baking some more blondies or some such sweetness soon. Just for you.

If you want something simple but a bit different to throw on the grill this week, try this.

Marinate some chicken drumsticks for several hours in:

  • 1 can coconut milk
  • juice of 2 limes
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

and then grill ’em up! Be sure to get that chicken skin nice and crunchy. The coconut flavour was really prominent in these so some rice and beans with a kick are the perfect accompaniment:

I’d love to know your favourite grill marinades – please feel free to leave a comment!

And THANK YOU for your smoothie suggestions – I’ve been having a whale of a time with the new blender! Peanut butter and banana? Yup. Mixed berry and yoghurt? Yep. Cherry Choco Bomb? I need to find me some frozen cherries! Summer has arrived, at least in my world.
