BBQ Chicken is a common staple for any family who owns a BBQ in the summertime. Usually it is served on it’s own, or as a chicken burger on a bun. The best way to break your repetitive recipe habits, is to whip up a fun new sauce to go with your famous grilled chicken. Another way to mix it up, is to season the chicken differently or serve it as a salad topping or health bowl topping. There are so many ways to make chicken exciting without having to completely deviate from your favorite BBQ’d food, so we’ve listed some of our favorites below.
