Recipe Round Up ~ Grill Day

Ellen over at The Happy Wonderer is hosting a Grill Edition of Recipe Round Up. If you've got a great grilling recipe and/or grilling tips do a post and drop by Ellen's to add your link. I love grilling so I'm looking forward to trying all the great recipes. I have a couple recipes I hope you'll like. One of my contributions is one we tried a couple weeks ago. It was the moistest grilled chicken I think I've ever made. Everyone raved over this and it is soooo easy.


6 skinned chicken breasts
1/2 tsp. cumin
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt
1 tsp. chili powder
2 Tbsp. oil
1 tsp. ground ginger
2 cloves crushed or minced garlic
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

Early in the morning or the night before, mix all ingrediants in a glass container. Add chicken breasts and totally coat. Cover and refridgerate 6 - 12 hours in refridgerator. Shake or stir at least once to recoat.

Heat BBQ on high then turn to medium heat before putting on chicken. When hot, brush grill with a little oil to prevent sticking. Cook 5 minutes per side or until juices run clear. Do not over cook.


-wooden grill skewars that have been soaked in water at least 1/2 hour

-Any combination of the following veggies cut in chunks or whole if small enough eg. cherry tomatoes, zucchini, red onion, any color pepper, mushrooms

-2 Tbsp vinegar

-2 Tbsp water

-1 clove garlic crushed or minced

-2 Tbsp dill, basil or parsley

-2 Tbsp oil

Whisk together marinade ingrediants. Add veggies, stir and marinade in fridge at one hour. Grill on medium to medium high heat until you have nice grill marks turning so all sides touch grill once. If desired, brush with marinade while grilling.

Another easy, easy recipe is grilled pizza and it's delish! And I'm all about easy and delish.


1 pre made 12 - 14 inch pizza shell
chicken & rib bbq sauce
1 - 2 cooked chicken breasts chopped
red pepper sliced
tomatoe, sliced
mushrooms, sliced
shredded mozzarella cheese or shredded cheese combo of cheddar/mozza/montery jack

Heat BBQ to medium heat. Brush pizza shell on both sides with oil. (I prefer a light olive oil, but any you like may be used.) Place on grill, cover and grill for a minute per side.

Remove from grill and add BBQ sauce using back of spoon to spread almost to edges. Add cheese. Then chicken, then the vegetables. I like to add a little more sprinkle of cheese at this point but that's optional.

Place back on BBQ, cover and let grill until cheese is hot and bubbly. Depending on your grill, you might want to turn it down a bit. Check bottom of pizza to see if it's turning brown too quickly.

-Remember if you have a favorite grilling recipe or technique or tip, go over to Grilling Recipe Round up and add it.

Lana G! said...

wowzers! All those look awesome!

Barb said...

Boy, Susanne. This makes me want to crank up the grill for something besides our usual chicken or ribs. Those vegetable skewers sound wonderful!

gail@more than a song said...

Some great looking recipes there! Thanks for sharing them....we love chicken. Is the marinade thick because of having yogurt in it? Grilling it with all that on probably does make it really moist!

Jen said...

Both sound very good. We love to grill.

Tammy said...

Great grilling recipes, Susanne!

I never thought about the fact we had to soak those wooden skewers...but of course, that makes total sense- so they won't burn!

My husband got a grill for free from Craigslist - seems dads were giving them away with all their new Fathers' Day barbeques~ :) We'll have to try some of these recipes!

Chris @ Come to the Table said...

These recipes look wonderful! I have copied them into my "word" recipe file.
Thanks for sharing!

Melanie said...

I like the chicken recipe. I love cumin and ginger. Never thought of combining them.

Laura said...

These look SO yummy. Can't wait to try them!

Thanks for all the prayers and love you have sent my way. I really, really, really appreciate it!

Laane said...

They look great!

It's a pity we can't BBQ here. But maybe there's some other way to make it.

Really inspiring. Thanks!!

Shalee said...

Oh, I'll be making that first one VERY soon...
