Grilled Chicken Is a Perfect Party Pleaser

Sponsored by Perdue

My poor son.

“All” his friends celebrate birthdays with their classmates, complete with multi-colored cupcakes and balloons hand-delivered to school on the special day by their ever-loving mothers.

But my poor son is the product of unfortunate timing that landed him into life right smack in the middle of the summer.


In theory, a summer birthday is the best – you can have a swim party, go to a baseball game or hold a party in the park. But the reality of a summer birthday is that friends are on vacation, weekends are filled with activities, and trying to come up with healthy summer recipes to please both kids and their parents makes party meal planning so much more difficult.

Because it’s summer, you naturally want the party outside. You’re going to want to grill. And you want to impress your guests with something that’s as easy as a burger but looks and tastes like it took you hours to prepare.

One of my favorite summer grilling recipes is Chipotle Lime Chicken with Strawberry SalsaPerdue® PERFECT PORTIONS® Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts are perfect for all kinds of chicken recipes. They’re fresh, they’re raised without antibiotics and they come in individual pouches within a resealable bag so you can cook what you need and save the rest for later. Party prep for grilled chicken has never been easier!

All you have to do is marinate chicken in this super delicious dressing, chop up the strawberries for the scrumptious salsa and just pop the Perdue® PERFECT PORTIONS® Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts on the grill for less than 10 minutes.

Even the pickiest eaters love the strawberry salsa, but you can always serve it on the side for those ornery kiddos who don’t mix textures! And as the parents rave about how hard you worked, you can just keep this easy summer chicken recipe secret to yourself.

And have a happy, healthy birthday party!
