Grilled Church Picnic Chicken

Wednesday, July 12, 2017

I'm no food blogger (nor food photographer, clearly, LOL) but this Church Picnic Chicken is our go to recipe when we need a delicious, quick grilled meal in the summertime.  We had a volleyball double header last night and even though we really need to do a shopping trip, and even though it was so late (10:30pm!), we were still able to pull a proper meal out of thin air  and enjoy the heck out of it.

If you're local to Johnstown, this is very similar to the St, Gregory Chicken recipe from back in the good 'ole days of summer church picnics.  It's been a few years since we've had one, so I'm not spilling any secrets, right?  Sharing the delicious wealth is how I'm going to think of it.  

4-6 chicken breasts/tenders 
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup vinegar
2 tsp salt

Heat grill to medium/high.  Melt the butter and mix in the vinegar and salt to create the marinade. Salt & pepper the chicken.  

Use a basting brush to paint the chicken on both sides with the marinade. As chicken is grilling, continue to brush on marinade with each flip.

I wasn't kidding, it was almost 11pm for dinner last night.
When finished grilling, plate and enjoy (no condiments necessary, but our kids like it with ketchup).  Great sides include haluski (go full western PA church picnic style!), corn on the cob, or green beans.  The vinegar and butter keep the chicken so moist and delicious.  Honestly, it's our absolute favorite way to grill chicken.  

Hope your family enjoys it as much as we do!
