Brined Chicken

Brining chicken before you grill it – especially on a charcoal grill – makes all the difference in the world. It makes so much of a difference that my 5 year old niece declared it the best chicken ever, and that she would eat it all herself. To her credit, she had thirds, and she…

Miso Chicken Marinade

I’ve been searching for an easy chicken marinade that will give me enough flavor that I can eat it alone, or with a simple side, like grilled vegetables. The missing link was white (or light) miso paste. Miso is a Japanese fermented soybean paste, that provides that often sought after fifth flavor – umami. It’s…

Gouda & Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken

Chicken breasts (3) 2 c. Buttermilk (use more if necessary to cover) 3 slices Prosciutto 3 slices Smoked Gouda cheese…
