White Wine Chicken with Honey Glaze

Aug 15

If summer never ended, I would be completely okay with that. Yes, it’s a bazillion degrees in Virginia, and I wouldn’t mind if it was less humid, but I LOVE grilled foods. Growing up, my mom would grill throughout the year– yes, we would clean the snow off the grill cover before grilling dinner. Austin and I, however, are not willing to brave all the elements for grilled food. So, yes, it should stay summer forever.

Speaking up forever, I could also eat this chicken for every meal– super juicy and delicious. Austin found this recipe, adapted from Eat, Live, Run, since we have an abundance of wine white. I guess life could be worse– you can never have too much wine….or this chicken!
