I am so ready to start grilling outside

I don't know about you guys but I'm ready to fire up my grill. Wish old man winter would move on out of my town. I'm ready for those 70 something degree kind of days where the suns out and you can just kick back and relax and let the smell of the grill fill the air.

First thing I'm going to make is Barefoot Contessa's Tequilla Lime Chicken........love this stuff (TNT). I tried to find this on the site but couldn't maybe someone else can find the actual recipe. I just do mine by taste so I don't really go by her measurements. But here actual recipe is very good........i just don't always have all her ingred. so i may add a little more of this or a little less of that.

Whats something you'll fix thats TNT? Recipe would be nice

1/2 teaspoon lime zest
1/4 cup lime juice
2 tablespoons gold tequila
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 skinless, boneless chicken
breast halves
4 (10 inch) flour tortillas, warmed
1 tomato, cut into 8 wedges
1 avocado - pitted, peeled,
and cubed
1 lime, cut into 8 wedges


Directions
1 Preheat oven to Broil.
2 Combine the lime zest, lime juice, tequila, honey, oil,
cornstarch, garlic salt and pepper in a small saucepan over
medium
heat. Bring to a boil, stirring, to thicken the sauce.
3 Broil chicken breasts for 10 to 15 minutes, or until
cooked through (no longer pink inside).
Baste with prepared sauce for last 5 minutes of cooking.
4 To serve, arrange a folded tortilla on each of 4
plates; add a chicken breast, 2 tomato wedges and some
avocado
chunks. Drizzle chicken with remaining sauce and garnish
with
2 lime wedges.

You could do this on the grill. Is it close to what you do?

I am just waiting until the snow melts enough so that I can see my grill, then I will be out there again!

I grill all year round because I'm so happy to have gotten my new grill. I have the Barefoot Contessa's recipe at home and will try to post it as soon as I can. I have also made this and it is really good, a favorite amoung family and guests.

Me too, Sizz! I've grilled in below-freezing weather a handful of times this year because I was going nuts and needed grilled food! Nothing beats sitting outside and enjoying a cold beer while you tend the grill, tho! 8)

Sizz, if I had a BBQ I would be doing that now, it is 60 and looks like a perfect day here, light winds, blue skies and an awesomely gorgeous day in Eugene. There is a BBQ in the patio of the apartments where I live but it is a pain in the you-know-what to carry the meat in an elevator to the ground floor, etc........ especially when I ususally cook my entire meal on the grill. ah well, perhaps some nice sole will take pity and invite me for a BBQ...... :D

I never stop grilling. I have a path shoveled to my Webber and keep it cleared during the winter. This year has been lighter than most as far as snowfall goes. I haven't had to shovel nearly as much.

I have to barbecue/smoke a turkey on March 5th for my oldest daughter's wedding reception. I'll have to dig some good maple and apple from under the snow. It will definitely be moist enough. :D
