8 Grilled Chicken Recipes To Make This Weekend

Cyd Converse

Growing up we were a big grilled chicken family. In the summer especially we lived off of tender, marinated grilled chicken just about every night of the week.

If there were leftovers? My mom would dice up the chicken and make chicken salad that we'd pile onto croissants or pita for lunch the next day.

For that reason, summer means grilled chicken season in my head! If you're looking to kick up your grilled chicken game, here are a few new recipes to try.
