As soon as the weather warms up, my husband prepares the BBQ for the summer season. He cleans it and changes whatever needs to be changed. BBQ is an important part of life in our home! BBQ recipes and especially BBQ Chicken recipes are part of our summer traditions! They are healthy, quick and delicious. They allows us to spend more quality time with our family and friends!

2 tbsp (30 mL) chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 tsp (2 mL) sugar

How to prepare this BBQ Chicken recipe

What I love most about BBQ Chicken recipes and any other BBQ recipes is that it is easy, healthy, quick and most of all: my husband can do it! We usually have BBQ dinners 5 days out of 7! We also have a tradition after the BBQ dinner: we grab our bikes and go for a ride! When we come back, we treat ourselves with a delicious homemade dessert.
