Grilling is a great way to celebrate holidays this summer, and this chicken dish is sure to please. The basting sauce for this chicken is super easy so the kids can pull it together and really feel like they helped. By using skinless chicken, fat and calories are saved, too. You can use homemade or jarred salsa for this one – it’s up to you! Serve this with a crisp green salad, some corn on the cob that was also grilled, and a fresh fruit salad with berries, peaches, and nectarines. It will be a colorful plate filled with taste to celebrate.
