Summer is here and it’s officially don’t-turn-on-the-oven season. Easy and fast grilled chicken is the way to go! Try this recipe that’s jazzed up with lemon and tarragon, it’s sooooo good. Feeds a crowd!
Are you guys show re-watchers? Book re-readers? I’m guilty of both. As I type, Eric and I are re-watching Leslie Knope win the election on Parks and Rec. It’s still hilarious.
Just like Harry Potter is still the most awesome person to have ever not actually existed. Yes, I reread the whole series while I was pregnant-sick. Don’t judge me. I started with the 7th one in the hopes that I would feel a sense of closure at the end, and not pick up the other 6 books. It didn’t work.
The other day I started telling my favorite Harry Potter quote* to a friend of mine (yes, really) when she told me that she hadn’t read any of them (yes, really). I have never been at such a loss for words in my entire life. I’ve never tried to sell Harry Potter to anyone before, because there’s never been a need. Everyone has read them. Like, where do you even start?
Now I suppose you’re going to tell me that some of you weirdos haven’t read it either. Well hop to it. You’re still alive, aren’t you? No time to lose.
Instead we are eating grilled chicken day and night. Like this Lemon Tarragon Grilled Chicken. Have you ever had fresh tarragon? It’s not an herb I reach for all that often, but it goes phenomenally with lemon in this recipe. (The other dish I love tarragon in is this Lemon Tarragon Pasta Salad. It’s my favorite pasta salad, ever!)
It you are dubious you could sub another herb I suppose, like basil. But I promise it’s amazing. Just like Harry Potter. But don’t take my word for it.
Let me know if you try out the recipe!
This recipe was originally posted by me on I Heart Naptime. I was a contributor for Jamielyn’s blog last year, but I figure you guys want the recipes too!

*Here’s the quote:
Hermione, talking about Cho: “Well, obviously, she’s feeling very sad, because of Cedric dying. Then I expect she’s feeling confused because she liked Cedric and now she likes Harry, and she can’t work out who she likes best. Then she’ll be feeling guilty, thinking it’s an insult to Cedric’s memory to be kissing Harry at all, and she’ll be worrying about what everyone else might say about her if she starts going out with Harry. And she probably can’t work out what her feelings towards Harry are anyway, because he was the one who was with Cedric when Cedric died, so that’s all very mixed up and painful. Oh, and she’s afraid she’s going to be thrown off the Ravenclaw Quidditch team because she’s flying so badly.”
A slightly stunned silence greeted the end of this speech, then Ron said, “One person can’t feel all that at once, they’d explode.”
