Gluten-Free Meals: Grilled Chicken with Fresh Herb Salsa from eMeals


This weekend was perfect for grilling! My husband and I were bored of the same old burgers and dogs- so we looked to eMeals for inspiration! With so many gluten-free options to choose from, we chose to go with something packed with flavor that we could throw on the grill- grilled chicken with fresh herb salsa!


Making the fresh herb salsa was super simple, just toss the ingredients into a food processor or blender and pulse a few times! When you are ready to marinade the chicken, you just add part of the salsa to garlic, red wine vinegar, olive oil and chili powder. 


We decided to cut the chicken into kabob sized pieces. With the smaller pieces, it allowed the chicken to soak in more of of marinade in a shorter time. All that was left was to crank up the grill and throw together a side of yellow rice and beans.


Don't wander too far from the grill, the chicken will cook fast! 
To keep the meat from getting dry, I suggest basting it with the left over marinade. 

 I had 3 hungry family members waiting for the photo session to be done to serve their plates!


This recipe was simple and delicious. My hubby described it as a rustic meal that you could get at a restaurant. As much as I want to take credit for the compliment, I have to thank eMeals.com for the amazing dinner!

Peanut gave this meal TWO thumbs up! Also- after his first bite, he exclaimed "YUM!" 
Such and adorable food critic!
