My oldest texted on Friday before the holiday and said he and his girlfriend were coming for the weekend. Luckily, there had been a sale of chicken, and I had stocked up. So I quickly laid it out to thaw!
When they arrived Saturday, they had brought us fresh peaches, so I decided to add a fruit salad to the menu.
Easy Grilled Chicken
Put chicken pieces in a zip-top baggie. 3-4 pieces per bag.
Squeeze about 1/3 of a large bottle of Zesty Italian dressing into each bag. Seal, then squish around to coat the chicken.
Let marinate for an hour or so. If you're going to do it longer, put it in the refrigerator.
Grill the chicken as usual!
Next, I tried another new recipe from one of the ladies at my Bible study luncheon. I was thrilled I happened to have all these ingredients on hand. Had planned to make this already.
Kathy's Pea Salad
16 oz thawed green peas (I used baby peas)
1 cup cashews
Green onions- 1 bunch thinly sliced
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup mayo
Seasoning salt to taste
Mix everything together and chill. This salad is SO GOOD! Even the kids loved it.
And add a fruit salad to round out the meal! Fresh Georgia peaches, blueberries and Strawberries. The perfect mix.
