Super Easy French Grilled Chicken

My love of summer foods is based on 2 things: garden fresh veggies and charcoal grilling.  One of my family’s all time favorite is French Grilled Chicken.  So easy and absolutely deliciius.

You CAN use the IQF boneless, skinless chicken breast, but I have found that the fresh boneless, skinless breast absorbs more of the marinade and flavor.

I horizontally split 3 pounds of fresh boneless, skinless chicken breasts. In a bag or covered dish add:
1 bottle of Wishbone Sweet & Spicy French Dressing
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1 tablespoon worchestershire sauce

Mix marinade well, cover and let marinade overnight, shaking or stirring occasionally.  If you don’t have overnight, marinate at least 4 hours.

Lightly salt the chicken when you put it on the grill.  Don’t overcook or the chicken will be dry.

If you have leftovers, make sandwiches on hoagie rolls with fresh spinach and Thousand Island salad dressing.

Note: I’m not a brand name snob, but in this case the Wishbone brand and the Sweet & Spicy French formula is the best for this dish.

“See Ya Later” Mama Ruth

A dear family friend passed away this morning.  The tears I shed are selfish ones, because the suffering for her is over.

“Mama Ruth” Maahs is on the right, my own mama is on the left.

About 10 years ago, I accidentally wrote a song when I found out my brother had terminal cancer. The composition is courtesy of one of my dearest friends, Tony Baggett and is appropriate now for Mama Ruth.

The lyrics are below, and the MP3 file can be found here.

Our time together is soon to be no more
But you see, it’s only temporary.
Because Jesus is our Savior, of that we are sure
We’ll meet again, you and me
 
And we when again get together
The angels will hush their singing
Shouts of joy forever will have Heaven’s walls ringing
 
I can’t say goodbye because it won’t be forever.
Wait for me at Jesus’ feet until we are together.
Show me ’round that city, the paradise you’ve found
Tell me of the glory as we walk around.
No more tears where eternity begins
Your journey here is over
But your memory never, ever ends
And while our hearts are heavy
It’s not goodbye we say, but
We’ll see you later.
 
While together here we traveled a road
We laughed, we cried
We shared life’s loads.
Someday soon, we will hurt no more
In the presence of perfection
There’s glory in store
 
Sing with angels, we’ll worship together
Around His throne, forever and ever
The world behind us, then perfectly complete
Pain and sorrows gone, no more grief.
 
I can’t say goodbye because it won’t be forever.
Wait for me at Jesus’ feet until we are together.
Show me ’round that city, the paradise you’ve found
Tell me of the glory as we walk around.
No more tears where eternity begins
Your journey here is over
But your memory never, ever ends
And while our hearts are heavy
It’s not goodbye we say, but
We’ll see you later.
 
See you later…….
 
See you later.
