It's grilling season in Atlanta. This is the perfect time to get outside and fire up your grills. I'm taking full advantage of this beautiful weather - before my deck gets so insanely hot that I can feel the burn through the soles of my shoes - and I'm cooking all of our meals on the grill that I can, before the oppressive summer heat sets in.
This MoJo Grilled Chicken is a perfect way to kick off the summer grilling season. It is super juicy and bursting with bright flavor. Served with a side of brown rice and some fresh corn on the cob - this meal is perfect for summer.
