Well I hope we all survived the rain. I don’t have the totals for how much rain it ended up being in total, but wow! It’s sad that we have to go from one to the other, drought or flooding are not the best things we need but we take what we get right? I hope we can all get our planting in and that this turns out to be a very productive year for us all. As I drive around I see a lot of people digging and planting their home gardens and I for one am happy to see all the green out there. Doug has been on a tree kick this year and let me tell you that as soon as some of the fruit and nut trees start producing, I will have enough to start my own market. Along those lines I just want to mention the Farmers Market in Centerville started Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. at the courthouse. There is always a great selection of yummy stuff to buy. Hopefully we can get our local farmers market going this year.
I thought I would put a super easy summer dish out this week and it’s so good and light for those hot days.
Key West Lime Grilled Chicken
4 boneless Chicken Breasts
3 Tb. soy sauce
3 Tb. honey
1 Tb. vegetable oil
Juice of one lime
1 tsp. minced garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
Make marinade by combining all ingredients except chicken in a large gallon size bag. Add the chicken to the bag and let all of it marinate for at least 1-2 hours.
You can grill this on the BBQ or on an indoor grilling pan but I think it’s best on the grill. Cook 6-8 minutes on each side until the chicken is cooked. Check to make sure any juices are clear and chicken has reached internal temp of 165 degrees. Serve with a side of rice and grilled vegetables.
