If you don’t have your chicken with sauce often or ever, then this Grilled Chicken with Lemon Cream Sauce will change your mind about this duo!
Happy Father’s Day!! We almost didn’t post today but then figured there may be someone out there look for a little dinner inspiration and since this is perfectly us, a little grilling from Cade and sauciness from me why not, right?
Now let’s move on to what’s really on my mind and it has nothing to do with Father’s day. Sorry guys. But Cade, we sure adore you!!!
This is the only political rant I’ll ever make on here. I think. I’m pretty sure at least.
What is up with insurance? So you pay way more every month than what you need for a once or twice a year visit, but all of that money just disappears down the drain. Who is it going to? Why do they get to keep my money? Shouldn’t I get it back at the end of the year since we didn’t need it? Ok, last year we definitely used it and it saved us with so many hospital stays and then the NICU, but still.
My gosh this world is a mess, so I think I’ll just pull up a chair, let Cade grill some chicken and asparagus and devour this grilled chicken with lemon cream sauce.
Just because you grill your chicken doesn’t mean you can’t have a sauce. Am I right? And sauces make everything all better in my book. Really though, I love a good sauce. I even dipped my chicken nuggets in honey growing up. True story. And I bet I’d still like it if I had it again. Maybe I will…
Would you all disown me forever if I posted a chicken nugget recipe with honey? I’m doing it. I don’t care. It’s happening.
