I am one who loves to enjoy grill season for as long as the weather will allow! Sometimes, even when it’s not really allow!

My middle son has a birthday in December and I always cook a meal of their choice for their birthday. He has picked items that needed to be grilled and we have grilled on our deck with snow before in December.

NO snow yet, so we must grill away while we can. I have a simple herb marinated chicken to share with you all today. I was actually sent the recipe along with some ingredients from McDonald’s. The chicken recipe is what they in their new Artisan Grilled Chicken Sandwich.

The original version you cook the herb marinated chicken in a skillet, but I cooked it on the grill. My family really enjoyed this recipe.
