3 tasty chicken dinners for summer

When you smell chicken on the BBQ, it feels like summer. It’s true: no matter where you are or what you’re doing when you smell that delicious BBQ on the breeze, your mouth is going to water and you’ll be ready for a bite of something good. But what, exactly? Chicken is so versatile, the possibilities are endless. Here are a few ideas for three easy and delicious chicken dinners that taste like summer.

Seasoned chicken wings

VG Meats now carries three incredible flavours of seasoned chicken wings: Salt and Pepper, Sweet Paprika and Curry Peppercorn. All of these varieties are delicious, but we’re sure you’ll have a favourite once you try them. Serve them with sliced carrots and celery plus your favourite ranch or blue cheese dip, or toss up a fresh green salad. Prefer to use your own sauce or seasoning? Don’t worry, we still have our juicy, classic whole split chicken wings in store and online.

Marinated chicken breasts

We love chicken breasts because they’re delicious, versatile and so easy to prepare. Choose from boneless skinless or bone-in varieties - both are great! It’s simply a matter of preference. To prepare, coat some chicken breasts in your favourite marinade, cover the dish with plastic wrap and leave it in the fridge for a few hours. When it’s time to eat, just throw them on the BBQ and get ready to enjoy alongside your favourite side dishes. VG Meats has some incredible, locally-made sauces and marinades in store that make this classic summer dish even easier to prepare. If you prefer a spice rub to a sauce, try one of our store made options!

Chicken burgers

Winner, winner, chicken burgers for dinner! We love these store-made chicken patties on a soft bun with plenty of mayo, lettuce and tomato on top. Or, try guacamole instead of mayo for a fun twist! They’re also good with red onions and melted brie, or swiss cheese and sauteed mushrooms. It’s a perfect summer meal any day of the week! Serve your chicken burgers with french fries, potato salad or a crunchy green salad. Your taste buds will thank you for this one!
