Do you do anything special to the chicken before you grill it? Or do you just grill the chicken plain?


I love when you post recipes that you use from the recent purchases you make, keep them coming! Thanks!


Thank you for the recipe! I have a similar one, but I tried yours tonight and it was so much better! I loved it!


mmm looks good, did you make this recipe up? I really want to try it now! And I had seen the bags of cole slaw and wondered what you were going to make with it!:) Thanks for taking the time to take the pictures and write this up!


Looks good! Where in the grocery store do you find sesame seeds (would they be with other nuts?).


Yum! Looks good Sarah! Thanks.
