This month’s Kitchen Bootcamp challenge turned out to be a great one… And, it was a great way to finish up our challenges using The Professional Chef as our guide. In May, we’ll be moving on to a new book (The New Best Recipe)… But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves yet. You won’t want to miss out on these great recipes for grilling, broiling, roasting, and baking meats (and veggies!).
For this month’s challenge, I decided to work on my favorite burger recipe for summertime grilling. It’s not fancy, but it’s always good. And, it’s easy to adapt to new flavors and lots of different toppings. It’s a great basic recipe to have on hand!
Chicken is another great option for grilling… And, this Indian Chicken with Mango Salsa from Mangoes and Chutney is anything but ordinary. I can’t wait to give this one a try. I think it will be fabulous paired with some fresh, homemade naan!
When it comes to classics, you can’t beat the roast chicken. It’s always a popular favorite for Sunday dinner, but it’s easy enough for any day of the week. If you’re looking for a good recipe to try, I’d definitely recommend starting with this Roast Chicken from eat. live. travel. write. You can’t go wrong.
Ham is another one of my favorites… But, I don’t make it nearly enough. I usually just save it for holidays. But, after seeing this recipe for Baked Ham from UrbanFeedStuff, I am thinking I’ll have to add ham to the weekly menu very soon!
When it comes to grilling, I love branching out and grilling things other than meat. Veggies are one of my favorites, but when I’ve attempted to make potatoes in the past, they have never turned out well. So, I’m excited to try these Grilled Potato Wedges from My Adventures In The Country. Don’t they look perfect?
Roast chicken was a popular favorite for this month’s challenge! Here’s another great recipe (with step-by-step photos to help you along the way) for roast chicken from Nelly’s Pantry!
Homemade marinades can really add a lot of flavor to a dish, especially when you’re grilling! If you’re looking for a great marinade recipe to take your grilled dishes up a notch this summer, you won’t want to miss these Lamb Chops from Urban Baker.
