My College student son is home for the summer and we had a challenge to each other to jump on the health train and do a summer workout challenge. Part of the challenge was giving up sugars and carbs and eating more healthy protein and whole grains. I have found with his appetite I need to have easy healthy proteins to throw on a salad or heat up with wild rice was the best. I love grilling a mess of chicken breast and then having them in the fridge for recipes. Here is my easy grilled herb chicken breast.
I like to get a the jumbo package of organic chicken breast and fillet each breast into two portions. It cooks faster and seems to come out more juicy.
The big packs of chicken I will cook up half and then single wrap the other Breasts to put in the freezer for future use,
I marinade in olive oil, herb de Provence seasoning, garlic seasoning and lemon pepper. allow it to marinate at room temp for 30 minutes.
then grille to 165 degrees. approximately 10 minutes each side on a hot med high heat gas grille.
Then store in a airtight container in the fridge. we seem to go thru these in less than a couple of days. so good cold, or chopped in a salad. Makes taco night a breeze when getting home from a long day at work. Enjoy the shortcut.

I was raised on a large farm in a small community of Long Shop, Virginia. Just a stones throw from Blacksburg, Va and a short drive to the WV boarder. I grew up appreciating Appalachia cooking with low budgets and home grown veggies. What honestly tastes better than a warm tomato out of the garden sliced fat with salt and pepper? Maybe a bowl of good brown pinto beans and cornbread. Or even better grilled trout fresh caught from the creek!
My childhood was a dream... and what has made my passion for food- sharing good meals with good friends and loved ones.
My food always has a story and always in sizes to share.
I now have begun a new adventure with my love Jason, and we created the Bellman and Concierge LLC and reopened the beautiful Oaks Victorian Inn. A childhood home I knew well growing up and now saving for many to enjoy as a Boutique Bed and Breakfast. Cooking for guests and sharing traditions. Come visit us at
