What’s For Dinner? Cilantro Lime Grilled Chicken with Strawberry Salsa

The weather is finally feeling like summer!! This meal can be cooked outside on the grill, so no need to heat up the kitchen!  The salsa takes about 3 minutes to put together, making this an easy weeknight meal. This recipe calls for jalapeno in the salsa, I left it out because my kids would not have eaten it. Other than that, I followed this recipe exactly and it was a kid-friendly easy dinner!

Enjoy 🙂 Jenn
