Family Food Faves

This is one of our favorite "go to" chicken recipes. It's so easy, fresh and tasty. Perfect for summer grilling!

Lemon Pepper Chicken Tenders
recipe courtesy Rachael Ray
1 1/2 pounds chicken breast tenders, 20 pieces
20 (6-inch) bamboo party skewers (this is nice for entertaining but I don't mess with it just for our family!)
2 lemons, juiced and zested
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, eyeball it
Coarse black pepper
Coarse salt
Heat the grill over medium high heat. Skewer chicken. In a shallow dish, combine lemon zest and juice with extra-virgin olive oil. Reserve 1/4 of the marinade. Coat chicken tenders in marinade and season generously on both sides with coarse black pepper. Season chicken tenders lightly with salt. Cook tenders in 2 or 3 batches, a single layer, in a very hot grill. Chicken tenders will cook 3 minutes on each side. Transfer to a serving platter and brush with the reserved marinade.

YUMMY! That sounds delicious! When we heat up the grill this summer we'll have to give it a go.

And I have to tell you that four-shot of you all walking is simply priceless. Happy Father's Day to your Double Daddy!
