Summer Dinner Idea: Coconut Lime Chicken

Summer is heating up! I’m finding it hard to keep up with watering my flowers. I’d love to heat up the grill for some good summer time barbecue, but honestly, it’s just too hot to stand over the grill. I needed a summer dinner idea that was zesty and delicious but wouldn’t entail me standing over a hot stove or grill for half the day.

I know a lot of people find that using the oven isn’t their idea of the best way to cook in the summer time. But, I gotta say, next to the slow cooker, or rice steamer, the oven in my top choice. Here’s why, I don’t have to stand and watch a pot or skillet while food is cooking.

Our home is air conditioned. That means the temperature inside my home is comfortable even when the oven is on. So if I can do a quick prep, set the oven and cook all my meal in there, then it frees up my time to do other pressing things. So I am always experimenting with baked, or roasted summer dinner ideas.

What would you pair this with? I was thinking about a mango salsa with some blue corn nachos sounds like a yummy appetizer. What do you think?
