Easy BBQ Chicken & Reesey Piecey Goodness

Chicken is the number one go-to meal for dinner in our house! I especially love it because it’s so darn versatile and can be made in so many different ways.

Last night for dinner when we were trying to think of what to conjour up for a meal, we turned to the chicken thighs that were in the fridge and asparagus. I also had an intense craving for bruschetta, so I quickly ran to the store to get some fresh french baguette!

This chicken was easy peasy (as long as you know how to work a BBQ grill – if not, take some lessons!!) Seriously a life changing tool when it comes to cooking.

Ingredients:

skinless boneless chicken thighs
Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce
Salt & Pepper
Soy sauce

Directions:

– Marinade the thighs in soy sauce, salt and pepper for as much time as you can. We were trying to cook these up quick time, so they were onlyΒ  in the bag for about half an hour.
– Fire up the BBQ to a temperature of around 400. Once it reaches this temperature, put the thighs directly on the grill and brush with BBQ sauce.- After 7 minutes, turn onto the other side of the thighs and brush this side as well.
-After another 7 minutes, the thighs should be cooked through (but cut one in the middle just to be sure).

Enjoy the chickeny chicken!

And for dessert… I must share this recipe. I’m sorry in advance.

Colt saw this posted on Facebook off of someone’s Pinterest account and when he said Reese’s I was immediately convinced to get baking.

  1. This all looks so good. I’ll have to avoid the temptation of reeses for the time being but that chicken is first on my list of things to make as soon as I can chew again. YUM!
