So I know it’s not the weekend and often times that’s when the grill comes out but, I think that should change. Grilling is one of those methods of cooking this I find so easy - 1 - clean up is a dream and 2 - grilling tends to be Aaron’s job, so win-win!

Now when it comes to grilling I usually would say throw that marinade away immediately but with this recipe, you need to keep it around. Once your chicken is partially cooked you dip your chicken back in the marinade then grill again. Since your still continuing to grill it cooks anything that you shouldn't be eating but also adds that extra level of flavour that your chicken really needs.

The other great thing about marinading is that generally the longer you can let it sit the better, so your flavours are going to be amazing if you prep the night before and then grill when you're ready. Perfect for busy weeknights or entertaining, because it’s always better to hand out with your guests and a glass of wine than to be stuck in the kitchen right!

So get out there and enjoy the summer because we all know it never lasts long enough!
