Serve this flavorful chicken with smart sides such as a whole wheat roll and a crisp, mixed green salad.
How to Prevent Food From Sticking to the Grill by Greasing Grate
To prevent food from sticking to the grill, lightly brush the grill grate with vegetable oil before heating the grill. Or, spray the cold grill grate with cooking spray before heating the grill.
Keeping it Safe
Packaged fresh chicken should be refrigerated in the coldest part of the refrigerator. Freeze uncooked chicken if it is not to be used within 2 days. If properly packaged, frozen chicken will maintain top quality in a home freezer for up to 6 months.
