Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! We’ve had great weather and have spent a lot of our time in the pool and out by the grill. Last night’s dinner was amazing…inspired by my nephew Ryan who was over hanging out.

I’ll be posting a recipe Ryan made for us later this week… this Cedar Plank Grilled Salmon with Tropical Fruit Salsa. It was our first time grilling with cedar planks. The salmon turned out delicious!
But first, this Italian Herb Grilled Chicken.

This Italian Herb Grilled Chicken was perfect for a quick weeknight dinner. It was prepared on the grill and served with Ina’s Pasta with Sun Dried Tomatoes so there wasn’t a lot of time spent in the kitchen, which is really nice during the summer.
I don’t really measure the amounts of herbs and spices that go in the rub, I usually use equal amounts of each herb and spice and combine it in a bowl. I set aside what I want to use for that meal so I don’t cross contaminate, then store the rest of the Italian herb blend for another time.
Chicken like this can be used in so many meals…pasta, salads, sandwiches…you can’t go wrong with it. I love grilling a big batch of chicken breasts early in the week to use in different meals. It’s a great addition to Greek salads.

One of my favorite ways to use this chicken for a family dinner is to slice it up, top it with sauce and cheese and throw it on a roll and under the broiler to make chicken parmesan sandwiches. My family LOVES it.

More grilled chicken!
