Summer grilling never looked so good! Check out our recipe roundup of summer grilling recipes that are perfect for the indoor or outdoor grill.

If you’ve been following me on Instagram for the last couple of months, you might have seen I have a new favorite dish to make–my 6 minute salmon. As much as we all say we like variety, most of us eat the same foods over and over again.

Perfectly Grilled Chicken Breast

This grilled chicken breast recipe is hands down my favorite way to prepare this cut of chicken and prevent it from drying out. Cooking whole chicken breast tends to be one of the easiest things to mess up in the kitchen, yet many people attempt it first!
