We'll start with an easy entree on the grill, followed by two yummy salads worthy of any potluck, and end with the best cookie recipe ever (I'm serious. I had some serious cookie critics name these the best ever!)
This recipe is so simple, that I feel a little silly posting it. But it is such a staple at our house in the summer time that how could I not post it? It's one of those entrees that is so simple so you can focus your attention on the sides and dessert. And that's how I like it.

Several pieces of chicken--I have used bone-in legs and thighs, but my favorites are the tenderloins
1 bottle good BBQ sauce any flavor--we like Sweet Baby Rays around here
-Brush the chicken with BBQ sauce, cover, and refrigerate for at least an hour
-Preheat the grill to medium heat
-Brush the grill with oil to prevent sticking
-Place the chicken on the grill and cook on medium
-Flip partway through (the cooking time depends on what pieces of chicken you have and the thickness of the meat. Tenderloins cook very quickly, legs and thighs take a lot longer.)
-Once the chicken is cooked through (I would use a meat thermometer for legs and thighs) brush the chicken with more BBQ sauce and turn the heat up to high.
-Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, just until the sauce starts to caramelize and form a bit of a crust
-Serve with more BBQ sauce and lots of yummy sides!
