Spring is in the air and all I can think about is summer and firing up our Traeger grill! I long for warm summer nights, the smell of the bbq, family dinner on the back porch and the sound of the neighborhood kids playing in the distance. The days are long and the nights are slow. Oh summer I miss you.
This winter seems to be never ending in Utah, but it won’t stop me from brushing the snow off the bbq and firing it up! I may be grilling in my winter coat and Uggs but this chicken dish is well worth the frostbite! Serve it with a side of roasted veggies or on top of a crisp garden salad! Either way its sure to make your mouth water and bring those much needed summer vibes! Enjoy!
