grilled dinner!

This is not really called "grilled dinner."  

And I haven't actually made it yet; I had it last night, at a midnight barbecue.

But it's so easy to make, and so good, that I had to post it!  And it's all made on the grill!

The main dish is grilled chicken tenders.  You can buy boneless chicken breast and cut it into strips for this purpose.

I would hammer down the chicken strips to make them flat, so they will cook quicker.  Then marinate in Italian salad dressing; Add onion powder, garlic powder, and Tony Chacherie's Creole Seasoning.

If you don't have Tony Chacherie's, you can add any type of cajun seasoning, or none at all.

Then put them in a cast iron grill pan, on the BBQ grill.  You COULD put them directly on the grill, but because they are chicken strips, a grill pan is probably better.  Grill until done.

The first side dish was grilled corn on the cob.  Take the husks off the corn, spread butter on them, wrap in aluminum foil, and grill.

The second side dish was baked beans.  This was made with canned Bush's grilling beans, with added butter and chopped onions.  Put in a cast iron pot, and heat it up on the grill.

The garlic bread was also grilled; Slice a loaf of french bread, and butter each slice.  Add onion powder, garlic powder, McCormick's garlic bread seasoning, and some dried minced garlic.  Wrap the whole sliced loaf in aluminum foil, and put it on the grill.

There was also homemade potato salad that was not grilled, but very good.  

This potato salad was seasoned with Tony Chacherie's instead of paprika.

I realize that I broke normal protocol by posting a recipe before I actually make it.

But I will!  Soon!

  1. Mercy, child, I've already eaten and now I'm thinking there must be a good reason to eat at midnight....could this be it? All the food sounds fantastic. I've done most of this on the grill except for flattening the chicken strips...will do. Also, sorry for missing so many of these entries. I haven't used my cast iron so much since having that danged flat top stove. I sure loved cooking on gas.
