Summer Goodness Continues with this Easy Dinner!

Who doesn’t love cook-outs in the summer? They are the epitome of the outdoor summer living. When they were still living at home, my two sons were often cooking out, and we would eat dinner all together on the porch, enjoying the summer evenings. I was feeling reminiscent about these cookouts the other day, maybe because I see them very little in the summer now days.  So I decided it was time to have another one while my daughter is still at home.  I used Elli & Manos Flaming Red Pepper Greek Flavor Burst on a couple of grilled chicken breasts and OMG what a rich, beautiful taste! I added some roasted squash and sweet potatoes to balance the heat and got a perfect summer dinner.  Try it yourself and let the summer goodness continue!

Ingredients

2 chicken breasts

4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Salt, pepper and oregano

2 sweet potatoes

1 butternut squash

a few sprigs of fresh thyme

1 jar of Elli & Manos Flaming Red Pepper Greek Flavor Burst

Preparation

Cut the sweet potatoes and squash in 1” cubes.

Place in a bowl and mix well with 2 tbsp of the olive oil, salt, pepper, and the fresh thyme.

Roast at 400ºF for about 45-50 minutes until cooked.

In the meantime, mix 2 tbsp olive oil with salt, pepper, and oregano.

Thoroughly brush the chicken breasts, whole or cut in slices depending on how you like them. 

Grill the breasts on your BBQ or grilling pan until they are cooked through. 

Toss with the Flaming Red Pepper spread and add some more on top for an extra hot taste.

Enjoy!
