Now that summer is in full swing, my grill has been working overtime!  My family and I love grilling in the summer, not only because it brings amazing flavor to our meal, and its a quick, easy way to get dinner on the table.  Double-victory, right?!!  Having a variety of easy, delicious grilling recipes for the summer is a must.  I recently added this Spicy Verde Grilled Chicken to my arsenal of recipes – its definitely one of our new favorites!

Marinated with cilantro, lime juice and a spicy El Yucateco verde habanero chili sauce, this chicken will bring the heat!I recently came across the awesome El Yucateco Chile Habanero hot sauce.  El Yucateco makes a great variety of hot sauces, but I went for the verde to pair with my chicken.  Wow!!  What an amazing infusion of flavor, spiciness and heat!  I paired it with lime juice, cilantro and a couple other ingredients to make a quick, easy marinade for my chicken.

As far as I’m concerned, marinating prior to grilling is one of the best (and easiest!) ways to add flavor and tenderness to your meat.  I am in love with this hot sauce.  Some other sauces have a pungent vinegar flavor that is too overwhelming – NOT El Yucateco!  This hot sauce is all about the flavor and spice!  It’s now my new favorite way to add flavor to meat when marinating.  Try adding some of these other hot sauces, like the Red Salsa Picante to a burger recipe to add some spice and heat.  I think the XXX-tra Hot Sauce (Salsa Kutbil-ik) would be a great addition to a spicy steak marinade and would be fantastic in chili!  The possibilities are endless!  You can find a wide variety of El Yucateco hot sauces at Publix.

For my recipe, I added about 2 tablespoons of El Yucateco sauce to my marinade, and wow, what a difference!  I pairs wonderfully with the lime juice and cilantro, and that gorgeous green color is the star of the show!

When grilling your chicken, preheat your grill on high.  Before you put your chicken on, turn OFF the grill, and generously spray with a non-stick grilling spray.  This will help the chicken not stick to the grill grates.  You can also coat the grates with a bit of olive oil, however, I’ve come to prefer the spray, as its not as messy.  Just remember to turn OFF the grill, as if you don’t, it can really flame up and be a safety hazard.  Immediately turn the grill back on and set at a medium heat setting.  Depending on your grill (I have a gas grill that heats up pretty quickly), grill your chicken on medium heat for about 6 minutes per side.  Once you take the chicken off the grill, cover with foil and let set for a few minutes – this will help ensure the chicken stays nice and juicy.

Just before serving, I added a drizzle of sour cream to the chicken.  This adds a nice cool, complementary flavor to the verde marinade.  I also added a bit more chopped cilantro, which is a nice way to add in a bit more green color.

As you can see, this recipe comes together quickly and easily.  One of my favorite parts about marinating chicken to go on the grill (or any other meat for that matter!) is the fact that all of your prep work is pretty much done in advance.  That 10 minutes it takes to get your chicken marinating is totally worth it, as it means you’ll have a quick, easy and super-flavorful dinner ready to go when you are.  This is such a great dinner idea for any night of the week!

I hope you get the chance to make this amazing Spicy Verde Grilled Chicken soon – its such a great way to spice up your summer!  Happy grilling, everyone!  ~Erin
