marinated grilled chicken

marinated grilled chickenAsk Sticky to make something on the stove and he looks at me like I am speaking a foreign language. Suggest we grill for dinner and the man instantly has the giant tongs in one hand and a beer in the other.

Seeing how Father’s Day is just around the corner I thought why not throw the guy a bone and do a meaty post. Something so easy that even he will be able to make it in the future (with very little assistance). Of course he was the taste tester as I do not each such a thing as chicken..and since you are seeing it here you can bet it got a double thumbs up from the carnivore of our home.

(Raw chicken…it’s so gross. Really you guys, I need to move on from the below image quickly before I hurl.)

(For anyone who personally knows Sticky you can attest that that is exactly what the man said.)

When I checked the center to ensure it was cooked through, I could tell that it was extra juicy as well. I’m pretty sure those 2 things are solid indicators of some delicious meat.
