Grilled Chicken for Efficient Summer Cooking

Grilled Chicken for Efficient Summer Cooking

Summer weekend grilling is almost a given when you have lots of time to lounge around. But for many, busy weeknights leave no time for marinating meats or waiting for the coals to heat. With a little planning, you can enjoy fire-roasted chicken on a Monday night, when it's still too hot to cook and when you still crave the flavour of the grill!

Simply grill enough chicken for leftovers on the weekend and transform them into a delicious no-cook quick meal the next day. It's the perfect meat to do this with--it's delicious both hot-off-the-grill and cold in a salad or sandwich. Try it out this weekend by grilling extra chicken in any of these recipes...

...and use leftovers for one of these hearty salads the next day:
