We were in the mood for a quick dinner. I rubbed some basic barbecue rub on a boneless skinless chicken breast and grilled it for about 8 minutes a side over a medium heat on my Weber grill. I brushed it with barbecues sauce the last 5 minutes. The missus made rigatoni and heated some marinara sauce from the freezer. We had Kittencal’s Coleslaw left over from the night before.
If you cook regularly, you always have the making for a great meal, even if you are in a hurry.
