Happppppy Monday!

It’s crazy to think that just a few years ago I had NO IDEA how to use a grill. I think I was more intimidated to actually light the thing than to use it. I always thought I was going to light it wrong and blow something up (don’t laugh at me). Turns out, most grills are really easy to light and they work very similarly to an oven, but leave beautiful grill marks and delicious flavor.

Girls. Grills aren’t just for guys. #justsaying #itstrue

GROUP-2

I am of course, super excited about this stuffed chicken recipe because this recipe is a meal in itself. We’ve got 2 types of meat involved, a vegetable, lots of flavor, and cheese (if you want!).

For this recipe, I highly suggest purchasing a meat tenderizer. I got mine from target for less than $10 and I’ve used it a few times now! It’s a great tool to have and really makes stuffed chicken a lot easier. The reason you need it is because pounding the chicken down to 1/2 inch to an inch will ensure it will cook evenly and makes it easier to stuff and tie off!

I ended up topping my chicken with a delicious sun dried tomato puree I made by food processing sun dried tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, salt, and EVOO. Easy peasy and so delish. To make things even easier, you can buy  jar of pureed sun dried tomatoes at the store, which is equally as good!
