At this time of year, I love using fresh ingredients from the garden and today’s recipe for grilled salsa chicken does just that.
You basically make a fresh salsa and add a few extra ingredients to make a marinade. Then the chicken soaks in the amazing mixture to produce a flavorful chicken that then gets cooked on the grill.
I made this when my son was recently on an elimination diet for medical reason. He was not allowed to eat eggs, dairy, soy, gluten, seafood, and tree nuts. Let me just say, that’s a hard diet, but this chicken recipe worked perfectly for it.
What is on the plate in the picture is exactly what I served it with. The great thing is he was able to also eat any canned bean product from Bush Beans. Any of their grillin’ beans would be tasty with this chicken.
