Caprese Grilled Chicken

By Kerri Whatley and the TLS Team

Growing up in my house, chicken at dinner time was a definite stable. My entire family loves chicken anyway you cook it. Here recently we have all been trying to eat better and to get back into shape. I decided to kick out the fried chicken and try Caprese grilled chicken instead!

Not only is grilled chicken going to be better for you than fried this tastes better too. (I know I am a southern girl saying she likes grilled over fried chicken, but it is really that good!)
