I didn’t have company, I was the company for once! Ben and I went to his mom’s house tonight, and though we actually helped prepare most of the dinner, it was only because she was busy assembling our wedding invitations. A good trade, if you ask me.
Anyway, no real recipes here, I just wanted to share how easy it can be to throw together a quick dinner for company. Because, this wasn’t really planned, and just sort of happened last minute, and despite that, you can still have something homemade, healthy, quick, and delicious. I will say, a fresh herb garden helps!
We enjoyed some grilled boneless skinless chicken breasts, which were marinated for about an hour in cilantro, lime juice, salt, pepper, garlic, tequila, and a bit of canola oil. I sliced the chicken breasts and arranged them on a platter with sliced mangoes, and garnished with more chopped cilantro.
The vegetables were seasoned with salt, pepper, and rosemary, and cooked in a basket on the grill. Since my parents were also joining us, we threw some buffalo chicken sausage on the grill too (chicken sausage: so versatile, great to have on hand in any flavor!). We rounded out the meal with grilled corn on the cob and fruit salad for dessert.
