Grilled Yucatan Chicken


This weekend we went to Pittsburgh for the weekend. We haven’t been in a really long time. We used to go once a month, but a lot of Anthony’s friends have moved so there hasn’t been a reason to go. It was a really nice weekend though.

Sometimes we go and he resorts back to college kid behavior of wanting to party until 4am and I just can’t hang with that. I like to go to bed by 11pm. If I have to go out late I definitely am leaving before 1am. It was odd though because everyone was much calmer and actually no one wanted to go out really late. It was amazing. I really enjoyed it.

Since we didn’t have an adventurous weekend I decided to try some adventurous food. I am trying to get the most out of my grill and I found this recipe from that looked delicious. And it was definitely delicious. The flavor was like nothing I have ever had before. Even just the smell of the marinade made my mouth water. If you are up for trying something new on the grill, I would highly suggest trying these.
