This Mesquite Grilled Chicken is tender, juicy and incredibly flavorful. It’s perfect on its own or delicious in salads, tacos or quesadillas. Summertime BBQS just got even better.
I love that summer is just around the corner which means we will be doing a lot of grilling around here. Do you guys love to grill as much as we do? I think we would probably all agree that marinated, grilled chicken is so much better than boring, plain, oven-cooked chicken, right? I mean, I love chicken, but it’s just kind of lackluster on its own.
Enter this mesquite marinate and your chicken dinners just got tastier and even more delicious. Mesquite Grilled Chicken has become a recent favorite around this house and I can guarantee I will be making it a lot this summer.
It’s smoky, sweet, tender, juicy and packed with flavor. A couple of my boys said this might be their new favorite grilled chicken ever. We love it with a baked potatoes or our family favorite rice.
One of the things I love most about this chicken is that it’s not only delicious on it’s own, but it’s fabulous in salads, tacos, quesadillas, or whatever you can think of.
Can I make this ahead of time and freeze it?
Yes! You can freeze all the ingredients together in a Ziploc bag and freeze for up to 3 months. When your ready to use pull the chicken out of the freezer and defrost before cooking it! I like to pull it out of the freezer the night before and put it in the fridge to begin defrosting overnight.
What should I serve with this?
The great thing about chicken is there are so many sides dishes that you can serve with it. Pretty much anything pairs well with chicken. Below is a list of some ideas.Print
