7 Up Chicken Marinade

By June 30, 2012March 21st, 2022No Comments
It’s nearly July 4th and for our family that means camping, family bbq’s & lots of roasted marshmallows. I am excited to share two of my favorite recipes to have when camping. I love a good ol’ grilled hot dog every now and then, but when I am in the mood for something a little more gourmet, I always turn to my favorite (EASY) chicken marinade recipe.  This recipe comes from the small, and charming city of Manti Utah. We camp their every year and enjoy watching the Manti Miracle Pageant. We swim in the Palisade’s Lake, go hiking, and have a great time visiting and eating lots of delicious food. Besides this amazing chicken, our family is now in love with Smore-itos for dessert. Regular-old smores are great, don’t get me wrong. However, these smore-itos are a fun new twist on an old favorite. Sounds totally crazy to have a smore in a tortilla, but they are so addicting you will want one anytime you are anywhere close to a fire pit. In fact, I have been known to cheat and cook these on our outdoor grill because  they are THAT good!  They turn into a tortilla filled with melted chocolate and marshmallow goo. It doesn’t get much better than that!! I hope you have a safe (& delicious) holiday weekend 😉
