There’s still time to grill.
The days are crisper, but the grill is hot and ready and you should be minding it. It’s football season, it’s leaves on the ground season, it’s almost time to put on a parka season.
Don’t let the time get away from you. Grill. Do it. Grill. And start with this…
Brick Grilled Chicken with Cola Sauce.
Trendy restaurants are all about the idea of preparing chicken under a brick. Why? It’s quick. It’s rustic. It cooks the chicken quicker and evenly, and my goodness, are the results juicy. Grilling under a brick is super easy, so that’s the perfect kind of chicken for me. And topped with this sweet and sassy cola sauce? You’re talking good eating.
Give it a try this weekend. Enjoy the Saturday in front of the TV watching your ballgame but take a few minutes to step outside and grill. Breathe in the last summer air. Grill. Do it now.
Next weekend you’ll be raking leaves. Sorry.

Tyson Fresh Chicken
I used Tyson Fresh Chicken in my recipe, as I was approached by the brand to create this grilling recipe. Of course, I happily agreed as I have always been a fan of Tyson. It’s a brand I know and trust, it’s always readily available here, and I know from experience it is the quality I want for my family.
Tyson Fresh Chicken is the next best thing to being fresh off the farm, (if you can even get farm fresh chicken where you live – I can not, and I live I the boonies). Why?
o It is all natural with no added hormones or steroids
o Arrives at your store fresh, delivered within days from leaving the farm
o Raised by family farmers for over 75 years.
o Each piece is hand-trimmed for convenience to save time and effort.
* Minimally processed. No artificial ingredients.
** Federal regulations prohibit the use of added hormones or steroids in chicken.
