1. Honey-Garlic Grilled Chicken


This easy recipe is made by first combing oil, fresh cilantro, honey, lime juice, garlic, salt and pepper. The mixture will be the marinade. Afterward, add the chicken breasts into the bowl and coat them with the marinade. Set them aside for about 30 minutes max and then grill over medium heat for approximately 10 minutes or until cooked.


2. Smokey Grilled Pork Chops


Get a bowl and combine some garlic powder, black pepper, salt, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce, paprika and smoke flavoring. Rinse your pork chops and then sprinkle them with the rub that you just made. Massage the rub onto the meat and let them stand for about 10 minutes. Grill them for about 12 minutes on each side and cook until the internal temp of the meat reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit.


3. Best Grilled Burger


This burger recipe is so easy to do, you won’t break a sweat! Simply create burger patties out of ground chuck or ground turkey. Sprinkle each side with Kosher salt and pepper. Brush them with canola oil and then grill for about 3 minutes (beef) or 5 minutes (turkey) on the first side. Cook the other side for another 4 minutes or until the burger patties reach your desired doneness. Put the burgers on sandwiches and top with cheese.


4. Grilled Steak and Vegetable Kabobs


Make your marinade. Get a bowl and combine some lemon juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, canola oil, minced garlic gloves, dried basil and whole garlic cloves.

Cut the onions into wedges. Wash the cherry tomatoes and the fresh mushrooms. Skewer the veggies and the beef alternately and then place them all in a large dish. Pour the marinade over the kabobs and then put them in the fridge. Let them stay there for approximately 6 hours. Grill the kabobs over medium heat until they reach your desired doneness.
