Grill up some Lemon Dijon Grilled Chicken before summer’s over. It’s a tasty and healthy dinner everyone will appreciate. Tender, flavorful, and fabulously easy for any night of the week.
Today was uber special. Not because I finally got my Etsy order in the mail, though I super-like getting packages in the mail. Not because my Biggest Little informed me last night that he needed new soccer cleats today because his feet have grown that much, and I actually found a perfect pair on clearance at the first store I tried (that never happens.) And not because I got to eat cake for breakfast.
‘Kay, it’s a little because of the cake.
But no, it was the occasion, really…
Today was one of those rare days I got to sit with close friends over coffee [and cake.]
Uninterrupted time with friends is so precious lately, with everyone in their busiest seasons of life. Between all of us, we have enough boys to form a basketball team. Add few girls in there for good measure. It’s getting harder to come together now that our kiddos are older. Gone are the playdates with swings and strollers.
We all juggle a gajillion things. And what a treat it is to find time to breathe and hang out together, uninterrupted. Just chat, giggle like silly schoolgirls, and eat big slices of carrot cake.
Some much-needed girl time is totally refreshing. It puts a spark in my step and jazzes up my day.
Kinda like bright yellow lemons. Y’all know how lemons are boss around here. Just check the mini roundup of lemony recipes below. I can’t help it. I know I should be more fair with other citruses, but I keep coming back to my lemons.
After all, I grew up where lemon trees spilled over all the neighborhood yards. Nobody knew what to do with all the sunny bright fruit everyone tried to unload onto each other.
Oh, this chicken. It’s grilled to tender perfection (just don’t overcook, which seems to be my grilling mantra.) It’s tangy and zesty and refreshing. It’s sweet with honey and savory with Dijon mustard and seasonings.
Did I mention it’s unbelievably easy? Yeah, that. It’s simple-tastic. Just mix together the sauce, marinate for a bit, and grill.
Here’s to days that start with friends and cake and end with something like this. ↑↑↑

Lemons are obviously not just for Lemon Bars. We think you’ll really, really like these lemony main dishes:
1. 30-Minute Lemon Basil Chicken Linguine. So quick and flavorful.
2. White Fish with Lemon Butter Sauce. Healthy. Lemony. Delish.
3. Basil ‘n Lemon Pesto. Perfect for chicken, pasta, crostini, or anything you imagine up.
4. Spaghetti with Lemon and Olive Oil. Perfect as is. Or add chicken or shrimp for a protein packed main dish.
