Why grill plain chicken breasts when a simple ginger-honey basting sauce can make them extra special? This tempting chicken is a wonderful summer main dish since it's quick and light. We love it.

“On hot summer days, this yummy chicken dish is a cinch to throw together without heating up the kitchen,” Missy Herr confirms from Quarryville, Pennsylvania. “Almost all of the ingredients are probably already on hand, so you can serve it any time.”
When our neighborhood has a cookout, I always take along this chicken and watch it quickly disappear! My family loves this recipe because of the zesty seasoning blend and no-fuss barbecue sauce. —Linda Scott, Hahira, Georgia
You won't have to pack a lot of supplies to stir up the easy marinade shared by Dorothy Smith of El Dorado, Arkansas. It requires only three ingredients and gives fabulous lime flavor to tender chicken breasts.
This is our favorite cookout dish, and it's very good served with a salad. This recipe originated here in my hometown in the 1930s. Our meat preference for speidis is venison, but we use chicken and beef when it's not available. —Gertrude Skinner, Binghamton, New York
For our must-have meal, we roast chicken using bone-in, skin-on thighs. This version without skin and bones has a zesty rub of turmeric, paprika and chili powder. —Bill Staley, Monroeville, Pennsylvania
"A friend at work gave me the recipe for this marinade," recalls Denise Pope of Mishawaka, Indiana. "After grilling the tender chicken a few times for company, I decided to turn it into a sandwich." It's complemented by a pineapple ring and a mild dill and mustard sauce.
