8 easy dinner ideas for grilled chicken

Grilling can make summertime dinner preparation much easier and it is nice not to have the heat of a 400 degree oven in the kitchen on hot days.  However, the same old, plain, grilled chicken breast can get tiring.  Here are eight easy dinner ideas for grilled chicken:

  • Barbecue Chicken Sandwich (marinating the chicken in bbq sauce or brushing it on while cooking is a great way to give it a smoky, grilled flavor)  Served on a bun with lettuce and tomato.
  • Spinach Artichoke Chicken Sandwich (spread spinach artichoke dip on the breast as a condiment)  Served on sourdough bread with bacon and Provolone cheese.
  • Chicken Fajitas (slice the grilled chicken)  Serve with tortillas, cheese, sauteed peppers and onion, lettuce and sour cream.
  • Caesar Salad (slice the grilled chicken)  Served over Romaine leaves with shredded Parmesan or shaved Mozzarella cheese, sliced Roma tomatoes, and croutons.
  • Chicken Kabobs (cut the raw chicken into small cubes, marinate with Italian dressing for a few hours, then place on skewers with marinated vegetables (mushrooms, tomato, peppers, onion) or pineapple and grill)  Serve with wild rice, homemade mac and cheese, or watermelon.
  • Grilled Chicken Penne (cube or shred the grilled chicken)  Serve with cooked Penne pasta and your favorite red or Alfredo sauce.
  • Chicken Pasta Salad (cube or shred the grilled chicken)  Mix into a favorite pasta salad.  Serve hot or cold.
  • Grilled Chicken Pita (slice the grilled chicken)  Serve in a pita with tomatoes, olives, feta, alfalfa sprouts and yogurt dressing.
