I almost wonder if I am busier in the summer than I am in the winter?  I tend to overestimate the  time I have in a day during the summer.  

Maybe because I feel like I have a more relaxed schedule or it could just be the longer days and the feeling of more time. Whatever the reason, I seem to have less time for dinner during the week of summer than winter.  

I am always working to create recipes that are quick, healthy, and easy to prepare on the grill. This maple mustard grilled chicken has been my dinner life saver more than once over the last month.

 It contains ingredients I readily have on hand, takes minutes to prepare and is simple to cook up on the grill.  

I chose to use chicken thighs, but this is just as delicious with chicken breasts.

I also used the ClickList pick up curbside option at my local Kroger grocery store.  

I mean ordering your groceries on-line is pretty genius!  

Talk about a HUGE time saver and quite honestly life saver.  

One day last week I knew I had guests coming into town and that I would be so busy I wouldn’t have time to get to the grocery store.  

I wanted to make this recipe and I didn’t have chicken at home and I was out of apple cider vinegar, both items that are contained in this recipe.

My friend at the gym had told me she had ordered her groceries from Kroger the week before and was thrilled with the experience.  So, I literally logged onto Kroger website, signed in and typed what I needed into the search bar saved to my shopping cart and then told them when I would need to pick it up the next day, BAM I was done.  

I did a quick stop at the store on my way home from work and I didn’t even need to leave my car, they brought the groceries out to me.  I felt so special… and relieved because it saved me a huge amount of time.

They also keep a list of your favorite items, you know the ones you buy consistently so that it is that much EASIER to use.

Okay so enough about how awesome this ClickList thing is and on to WHY YOU WANT TO MAKE THIS MAPLE MUSTARD GRILLED CHICKEN.

    People always tout summer as being “lazy days”, but I’m with you, they seem so much busier and more harried then in the fall and winter. This maple mustard chicken looks divine. I love the char you achieved on the meat!

    I really need to try ordering groceries online – what a time saver! This sounds really great. We grill chicken all year (thanks awesome weather!) but I’ve never tried mustard with maple! Love the idea!

    1. How awesome is it to sit on your couch and order your groceries, and then pull up to the curb and have them bring them to your car.
