Grilled Chicken with McCormick Grill Mates

The great thing about this meal is that it doesn’t require much time or effort and is delicious every time!

Grilled chicken accompanied with fresh veggies is our standard dinner here—even in the winter.

I think marinated chicken is the best on the grill. Chicken is so much more flavorful and moist when you use a marinade! Our fav marinade: McCormick Grill Mates Marinade. There are such a variety of flavors and they are all delicious! It’s amazing how just changing the marinade can transform the way you view “boring chicken on the grill” into an easy meal you look forward to! Our all time favorites are the flavors  “Zesty Herb” or “Garlic, Herb & Wine” (which do taste quite similar-it can be harder to find “garlic,herb & wine”).

Careful of those hot spots on the grill! A couple of mine got a little darker than I’d usually like, but it still tasted great!
