My First Foodie Friday

Foodie_Friday_Logo_2

When it comes to food, if it aint easy, I aint cooking it… ;) So this is for all us easy does it gals….nothing fancy smancy here, but I do love to grill everything!  It’s quick,  easy and the clean up is a breeze.  Oh yeah, Foodie Friday is going on over at Designs by Gollum…so if you want some great ideas for dinner this next week…head on over there, after you finish here….you’re sure to find some delicious recipes!

grilling and new books 001 I know you all have all grilled chicken before many times, and chicken is something that really needs flavoring.  I love to try different spices on my chicken, and I am always looking for that gourmet stuff at Marshalls….y’all know that isle I am talking about, it makes me feel like a chef to use that stuff.    A while back I found this Lemon Pepper seasoning and thought I would give it a try for my chicken.  Well, this is my 3rd bottle!  Do you think I loved it!!!!!  Yes I did!

grilling and new books 003 Melt a little I can’t believe it’s not Butter  pour it and Olive Oil on your chicken along with the Lemon Pepper seasoning and marinate for a few hours in the fridge.  Then grill…or bake in the oven.

grilling and new books 004 I almost forgot to take a picture of it before it was all eaten… ;) 

grilling and new books 005 This is the way I like to eat grilled chicken….a lettuce wedge with bacon, onion, cucumbers, tomatoes, O'Charley’s Ranch dressing and a roll on the side!  Oh so good! 

Is your mouth watering yet?  Yeah, mine too! 

To see more delicious food head on over to Designs by Gollum for Foodie Friday.

Hope y’all have a fantastic and WARM weekend!  Blessings!

That looks so yummy. I AM ADDICTED TO LEMON PEPPER. I use it on just about everything and in place of salt. Love how you put the lettuce wedge and fixings on top of the chicken.

Crystal said...

This recipe looks very tasty and easy. Never thought of the lettuce wedge, leave it up to you southern ladies, your presentation is always lovely.

Thanks for sharing!

Hey that looks great! I will remember this. At times I want nothing but easy cooking but then I also have times where I like to get into something more difficult. I love chicken but yes I get tired of thinking of ways to cook it.

Donna@designson47thstreet said...

Nancy, I am always up for chicken. This does sound good AND easy. I have not heard of that brand of ranch. LOVE lemon pepper!

thanks!

Beth at Aunties said...

Nancy,
Does O'Charley’s Ranch dressing come in a dry packet? Or is it in a glass container. I would love to try it and it is not in our grocery stores.
I will be out in your beautiful area in a few weeks and was just wondering if it is something that can be taken on a plane?
Beth
