made tacos/burritos with grilled chicken.

I made a marinade with some Penzy's taco seasoning mix (all natural, no funky stuff). I dumped some seasoning mix in a gallon ziploc with some fresh garlic, juice of a lime, and some olive oil. Let it set for a 1/2 hour (all the time I had) and grilled. Sliced it up and piled it with the usual suspects on whole wheat tortillas. Turned out great, I'll definitely make it this way again.

These chicken breasts were huge enough to feed 2 people each!! I cooked 4 - 2 for dinner tonight and 2 for tomorrow over salad.
Bone in chicken breasts (nicely seasoned pan seared in EVOO then placed the pan in oven to finish roasting), pan gravy (pan fond, butter, chicken schmaltz, flour, ground sea salt, ground peppercorns, poultry seasoning, dry white wine and chicken broth with herbs), cauliflower and carrots and homemade mac and cheese (small pasta shells, butter, flour, ground sea salt, ground peppercorns, hot sauce, milk and shredded cheddar).

Brined and grilled bird, stuffed potatoes, chard with garlic, and a hot pickle..
