Grilled Cilantro Lime Beer Chicken

Grilled Cilantro Lime Beer Chicken

I go through phases of grilling all the things. And by ALL, I pretty much mean it. I once grilled garlic. Nothing edible is safe when I’m in this phase. I always grill my homemade pizza, all fruit is better grilled, I’ve even grilled all the ingredients for guacamole, and then did it all again with all the ingredients for sangria (except the wine, but I thought about it!) because "guac, chips, and sangria" are better as "grilled guac, chips, and grilled sangria". I promise.

If you’re between grills right now, don’t sad-face me. Figure out how to get your grubby paws on one. Craigslist (ok, but be careful!), Facebook Market Place (way better, you can facebook stalk for safety), Amazon (really safe as long as your delivery guy is cool). It’ll be worth it when you’re finally able to grill all your things, too.

You can stop at normal things like meat and veggies. But if you want to grill pie or salad, I would approve. Just make sure to share it with me on Instagram.

I love your recipes! Would this also work on breast meat instead of thighs?

Yes, that should work fine! Just remember that breast cook much faster than thighs

I love grilling our romaine salad! I cut a head of romaine in half, slather some olive oil on it, and put it face down on the grill. It takes just a few minutes and adds a great char taste!
