Grilled Lemon Sage Chicken

Eileen Hineline


I was given a cookbook for a christmas gift-American Heart Association by a dear friend. I love chicken and I want to make all my chicken meals healthier for my 3 sons and myself. I have a George Forman grill and can't wait to make this delicious recipe. I know it says to grill over coals and if you have a grill for outside you can grill it this way. I hope you try this recipe and enjoy it.
