Earlier this year we went to a Peruvian restaurant; the same restaurant we had the garlic rice at (causing me to recreate it).

Salsa chicken is what you end up with when you buy some green salsa at the store that was just a little bit too hot for you to eat with chips. It’s true!

Last weekend was “Family Dinner” with some friends. It’s where we get together, cook, eat, have some wine and wind down from the week. It was so hot out I didn’t want to cook in the house, so opted for the grill. I made 2 kinds of skewers. This one was the favorite. The marinated lemon chicken skewers are marinated in some delicious and simple ingredients.
It’s grilling season! I am so excited about that! I love the flavors that come from a grill whether it be meat or veggies. These grilled marinated chicken leg quarters are so good! But make sure that you let the marinade soak in long enough! PLAN A DAY AHEAD! Seriously. It will make a difference in the flavor.
