15 Easy and Delicious Grilled Chicken Recipes

15 Easy and Delicious Grilled Chicken Recipes

I don’t know about you guys, but I love me some chicken. I could honestly eat it with every meal. Unfortunately, some of my chicken intake is in less than healthy ways (hello, nuggets and schnitzel). The good news is that grilling chicken is both healthy and delicious.

Check out these amazing grilled chicken recipes:

1. Lemon-Herb Grilled Chicken Wings

    This recipe not only has a fresh and zesty flavour, but it also has very few ingredients. This means it’s super easy and fast to make, and won’t overpower the natural flavour of the chicken itself.

    2. Grilled Chicken with Caramelised Peaches

      The combination of the fruit, chicken, and couscous gives the recipe a lovely Moroccan feel.

      3. Yogurt Marinated Indian Spiced Grilled Chicken

        As a fan of Indian spices, this is quite possibly the perfect grilled chicken for my tastes. Bring this chicken to a picnic or party, or debut it on a barbecue.

        4. Greek Grilled Chicken with Tzatziki

          This recipe screams “big fat Greek gathering” to me! Also, the combination of chicken and tzatziki is fascinating.

          5. Grilled Chicken with Corn Salad

            This gorgeously fresh salad recipe would be great for lunch or to take along to a gathering. It’s a fantastic option for kids lunch boxes, as well.

            6. Grilled Chicken and Vegetable Stacks

              Not only do you get grilled chicken with this recipe, you also get delicious grilled veggies. It’s perfect for lunch or a light dinner.

              7. Sticky Grilled Chicken

                This amazing Asian-inspired recipe is full of rich flavours that will have you reaching for a second bowl.

                8. Jamie Oliver’s Barbecued Chicken

                  You really can’t beat grilling on a BBQ, particularly when you have Jamie Oliver to guide you. What I really like about this recipe is the mixture of citrus and chili.

                  9. Grilled Balsamic Chicken with Rice Salad

                    This Mediterranean inspired dish is the perfect addition to any summer BBQ.

                    10. Lemon and Rosemary Grilled Chicken with Fried New Potatoes

                      Fresh and delectable flavours on a bed of fried potatoes…where do I sign up?

                      11. BBQ Chicken Pizza

                        You didn’t really expect me to leave pizza off the list, did you? This pizza is sweet (from the barbecue sauce) and savory (from the chicken). What a delicious combination!

                         

                        12. Grilled Pepper Jack Chicken Sandwiches

                          Chicken. Bacon. Cheese. These elements make for the perfect sandwich. I recommend using brioche for the bread.

                          13. Garlic-Lime Grilled Chicken Breasts

                            I know there’s been a lot of fruit based recipes in this collection, but that’s because chicken really does lend so well to it. This time, our old friend Mr. Garlic is coming along for the ride.

                            14. Grilled Tandoori-Style Chicken Drumsticks

                              This is another party favourite. Who doesn’t want more mango powder in their life?

                              15. Chicken Caesar Burger

                                This recipe calls for ground chicken, but I would personally substitute it for some grilled chicken breast. Perfection!

                                10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

                                10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

                                Getting naked is often thought of as an act that should only be reserved for intimacy—and even then some get squirmy! Many people are more comfortable believing that the more clothes you are wearing the better. However, getting naked more often can have great benefits for you. Here are 10 great reasons to get naked more often:

                                1. It burns more fat.

                                Your body’s main supply of brown adipose tissue (BAT), or good fat cells, are located around your shoulder blades and neck. When your body is exposed to the elements and is cooler, the BAT proliferates and essentially kills the white adipose tissue, aka bad fat cells. So, not wearing any clothes helps promote this and makes you healthier.

                                Advertising

                                2. You’ll become comfortable with who you are.

                                Self-acceptance is hard to come by today. Ask anyone you know and see if they are happy with themselves. Chances are they will say they are too fat, not pretty, and find all of the flaws that they can. In reality, others do not see this. They see that you are beautiful. When you begin to get naked, you learn to appreciate your body and realize how beautiful you really are.

                                3. It saves you money.

                                Being naked more often saves on buying new clothing since you are wearing nothing a lot of the time. Be careful when you are in public, though—you may have to put on some clothes!

                                4. It increases your immune system.

                                Being naked and getting exposure to the sun’s rays actually increases your body’s vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is directly related to your immune system. When you have optimal levels of vitamin D, your body’s immune system is impeccable, and you will be better equipped to ward off viruses, including the common cold and flu. So go lay outside naked on your private balcony or in your yard.

                                5. It makes you face your fears head on.

                                People cringe today when you mention the words “get naked.” They are so afraid of it—and today’s children are so ingrained with this—that they must wear layer upon layer to deal with their body image. However, when you are naked, you face your fears of body image and self-acceptance, experiencing some of the best moments of your life.

                                6. You will feel better in your clothes.

                                When you do wear clothes (because not everyone has yet accepted being naked in public), you will start to choose clothing that accentuates the parts of your body that you love. You will begin to notice that maybe that muumuu does not flatter your beautiful curves and start wearing clothes that you love.

                                7. You will embrace vulnerability.

                                When you put yourself out there, it is a natural reaction to have fear and worry. However, this is an opportunity to embrace being vulnerable. It allows you to think and get down to the core of what really matters and what is of importance to you. When you strip away all of the excess, you are 100% you and willing to take on anything that comes your way.

                                8. You will show the world the real you.

                                Today, we have many ways of altering our appearance from our true body image when we wear clothing. Some people alter their image so much that they fear getting naked with the person they love. It seems crazy that this could even happen; however, the rise in use of breast-enhancing bras and Spanx products has put this idea into people’s minds. This all goes back to being comfortable with your true body image. If a person really does love you, then they should not love you based upon your image. If they do, then you may even decide that the ever-so-uncomfortable leggings that go up above your waist to hold in all of the imperfections may not be worth it after all.

                                9. You will have fun.

                                Well, this could go in all sorts of directions. But when you are comfortable with your naked body and see it as being flattering, then life is more fun. You start realizing that you are beautiful and are willing to do more things that you probably would not have done otherwise—with and without your clothes on.

                                10. You can have intercourse with the lights on.

                                Many people are self-conscious about the way they look and decide that the less lighting the better when they are intimate with their partner. It’s nothing new. If you survey your best friends, you will probably come to this conclusion too. They may say that it even gets awkward, because they are more concerned with what their partner thinks of their body than just having and enjoying amazing intercourse. When you love the way you look naked, you will also want to have your partner see you at your best.

                                What are you waiting for? Start spending more time in the buff today and begin to change the way you think about your body.
