What a weekend! I surprised my husband with a long weekend full of fun, relaxing, eating, gambling, spa treatments…pretty much anything you could pack into 3 days. We had a great time, but boy am I feeling it now. A few days of eating differently after being so good for a while really does a number on me. Back on track today…
We loved this chicken a few weeks ago and I definitely plan on making it again soon. Frank grilled it perfectly – it was delicious. The skin was nice and crisp while the meat stayed tender. I marinated this for about 24 hours, and I recommend that you do the same.
Oh, and please excuse the random pieces of grilled asparagus on top 😉
