Tips on Tuesday: National Grilling Month

I just found out that July is National Grilling Month. And we haven't even celebrated.

I love grilling out in the summer. Mostly, I love the break from cooking because around here, I don't even know how to fire up the grill, let alone cook on it. I've let it be Sean's domain. And while we grilled out quite a bit in June, we haven't done much in July--the official month.

I think it's been a bit too hot to give it a whirl. I'm hoping August cools a bit so we could grill and possibly even eat outside.

In honor of National Grilling Month, I wanted to share one of our favorite grilling recipes with you. I got it from my mom and it's become our favorite. I'll warn all of you--I hate mustard, can't stand the taste. So when you see what our favorite grilling recipe is, you might laugh out loud--it's ok, I laugh at myself.

Garlic Mustard Grilled Chicken
1 Cup Yellow Mustard
2 Tbsp. (heaping) Garlic Powder
4-6 Thawed Chicken Breasts (or whatever your favorite chicken pieces are)

In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of yellow mustard with 2 heaping Tbsp. garlic powder. Mix well, then dredge chicken in mix and grill until cooked through. Baste with leftover mustard mix while grilling.

Add more or less mustard or garlic according to your tastes.

I hope you enjoy grilling a little something this summer during National Grilling Month. If you have another excellent grilling recipe, please pass along to me.

Bon Appetit!
