Grilled Jerk Chicken Tenders with Mango Pineapple Salsa

Jamaican Jerk seasoning recipes vary, but here we’ve used a blend of green onion, soy sauce, lime, allspice, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. It’s traditionally used on chicken, pork, fish and vegetables to add a kick of bright, sweet tang. Be sure not to overcook the chicken on the grill, so it stays nice and tender.

Grilled Jerk Chicken Tenders with Mango Pineapple Salsa

Serve the chicken topped with a salsa made of fresh mango and pineapple. It will compliment the flavors of the jerk seasoning perfectly, and mango relishes are a traditional Jamaican accompaniment. This is a healthy dinner that can be prepared ahead of time for a quick and easy weeknight family meal.

Grilled Bourbon Chicken from @hamiltonbeach

With the warm weather here, we’ve been giving our grill a workout, preparing for Memorial Day and summer cookouts. We’ve been grilling salmon, steak, lemon chicken and tequila-marinated shrimp, but nothing can match our favorite dish so far this year: Grilled Bourbon Chicken.

Grilled Bourbon Chicken from @hamiltonbeach

This is a far cry from the take-out bourbon chicken you order from Chinese restaurants. Our version contains real bourbon, so it has a little kick of spice and a hint of deep sweetness. It’s combined in the marinade with brown sugar, soy sauce, molasses, cloves and red pepper for a combination that will knock your socks off.

Grilled Bourbon Chicken from @hamiltonbeach

We use a whole chicken, which is affordable, and with a little practice, it’s quick and easy to break down into 8 separate pieces yourself. Double bonus: you’ll not only save a few dollars per pound for a few minutes of effort, but you’ll end up with leftover parts perfect for a simple and delicious slow cooker chicken stock. You won’t have to buy stock the next time you need it, so it’s really like saving money twice. Can’t beat that!

Once bourbon-marinated chicken hits the hot grill, the sugars in the marinade start to caramelize on the skin, creating a gorgeous brown, crispy skin that has a sweet and smoky flavor you can’t quite describe, but definitely can’t put down.

So as it turns out, Mac from The Whisky Grill was onto something when he talked to us about cooking with bourbon. It adds a lot to the flavor and texture of the chicken – so juicy! – and combined with the rest of the ingredients in this marinade, it’s a home run. We can’t wait to grill this bourbon chicken again on Memorial Day… and 4th of July… and probably again soon after that. Who even needs a holiday? If it’s nice out and we’re hungry, this is it.

Baked Chicken Parmesan with Homemade Slow Cooker Marinara Sauce is great over spaghetti or on a sub roll - perfect for quick, cheap and healthy family dinners. From Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

Chicken parmesan is an Italian classic that can be served in many different ways. Whether on its own with a vegetable side, over spaghetti noodles or on a hoagie roll, it’s sure to be tasty. Our recipe below makes perfectly crispy, pan fried chicken cutlets which are then topped with fresh mozzarella cheese and placed under the broiler for five minutes. Once the cheese is melted and gooey, it’s topped with homemade slow cooker marinara sauce and freshly chopped basil, which adds a pop of freshness to the plate.

Spicy Lemon Chicken for Two from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

A few months ago, we asked you what you wanted to see more of on Everyday Good Thinking, and we got a few responses that really stood out. One such request was for healthy meals and meals for one or two people.

Spicy Lemon Chicken for Two from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

We created this delicious grilled chicken for the singles and couples who made these requests, but it’s easily adaptable for groups of any size. If you need to feed a larger crowd, simply multiply the recipe as needed.

Spicy Lemon Chicken for Two from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

The key to the pronounced lemon flavor in the chicken is the gorgeous marinade that’s prepared in a single-serve blender. Lemon juice, lemon zest, paprika, red pepper, rosemary, salt and pepper get blended into a quick and easy marinade that has a little zip and a lot of zing.

Spicy Lemon Chicken for Two from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

Let the chicken marinate for at least half an hour with some lemon slices and rosemary. You can cook the chicken on an indoor grill like we did (It’s still too chilly for us to grill outside most days.) or you can use an outdoor grill – whichever you prefer is fine.

Spicy Lemon Chicken for Two from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

I love the sizzle sound when you place something on a hot grill and the impressive grill marks you get when searing the chicken and lemons. Adding a few wet sprigs of rosemary to the grill creates a slight aroma the chicken absorbs. Flip it halfway through cooking, and use a meat thermometer to make sure you’re reaching the correct cooking temperature without overcooking the chicken. With poultry of any kind, you’re aiming for 165°F at the center.

Spicy Lemon Chicken for Two from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

Our recipe calls for serving the spicy lemon chicken breasts with a side of rice and we think it goes well with vegetables like asparagus, green beans, broccoli, peas, Brussels sprouts or couscous. It makes just enough for two, but if you’re cooking for one, why not make the full recipe and save the leftovers for lunch the next day?

Spicy Lemon Chicken for Two from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

There are many other uses for leftover spicy lemon chicken, so why not make a big batch sometime? I’ve used the leftover chicken breasts to top Greek salads, pasta with cream sauce, on grilled panini sandwiches and in chicken salad. There’s really nothing it can’t do – and the flavor is great.
