Our forecast says it will be sunny with occasional thunderstorms (which always happen when it is time to make dinner...), so I have been pulling out my cookbooks for the grilling recipes. At my warehouse store I bought a large package of boneless chicken breasts which is good for two meals, a salmon filet, and a package of three ham steaks. We will see how far that gets me. I am hoping for a leftover night, but we will see.
Yesterday I grilled corn on the cob (without husks) which became our appetizer. Then I mixed 1/2 C ranch dressing with 2 T french dressing and basted the chicken with it as it grilled. (This idea came from Betty Crocker's Good and Easy Cookbook). Everyone loved it and the chicken stayed moist and tender; and I am happy because I have two large bottles of ranch dressing to use up over the summer. This recipe is a keeper.
