Whether it’s a relaxing Sunday afternoon or a quick weekday meal, grilling offers your family a number of ways to make a delicious meal. In addition to easy favorites like grilled burgers, grilled chicken, or grilled fish, there are endless options to use your grill with your family. To take advantage of your BBQ, continue reading for some inspiration for quick meals that can be made any night of the week on your grill.
Grilled chicken breasts are a BBQ classic , but consider mixing up this old standby with different sauces and seasoning. BBQ sauce is a great marinade for chicken, as well as dressing or an orange sauce. For more variety, try using a dry rub such as a jerk chicken spice mixture of chilies, thyme, cinnamon, garlic, and nutmeg. For quick and easy weeknight dinners, try starting a marinade in the morning—by the time you get home from work all you need to do is throw the meat on the grill!
Beef and Pork Options
Most recipes that can be used for chicken on the grill can be used on pork as well. Pork tenderloin is a great option for grilling and can be used as a main dish or for sandwiches for lunch the next day. Steaks are always a great grilling standby. For an easy dinner, try steak kabobs. You can use most cuts of steak paired with vegetables to make a dinner everyone in the family will love.
Meatless Main Dishes
For a fun family meal on the grill, try a pizza night. Grilled pizza is a great way to get family members to customize their own toppings. Pizzas can be made with cheese and veggies for a meatless dinner option. Fish like tilapia or salmon are great on the grill and don’t require much prep at all, aside from a bit of lemon and olive oil.
