Hi all

Anyone have a good recipe for something to inject into chicken breasts? Tired of the same ol same ol. Sorry if I missed it in my search!

Any other suggestions? Want something really flavorful and juicy tonight! I'm a 'Bama fan and I'm hoping it is in celebration for a victory over the LSU Tigers...

    i know it says marinade but if you inject just prior to grilling it would be pretty good.. just use a blender to get the garlic and onion small enough to go through the needle


    happy eggin

    Rather than injecting them, if you're just looking for something different then how about stuffing them? I did some of these a week of so ago. Just pounded them pretty flat (could have been thinner than what I did. Should have smacked 'em with a heavy fry pan), then rolled them up w/ fresh spinach, mushrooms, and Swiss cheese. Held them together w/ wooden skewers, cooked on raised grid, foil covered stone on spider, at about 400 for about 20 min. Could have cooked a little less, but still moist w/ the stuff inside. I'll do these again. Maybe w/ bleu cheese next time and broccoli instead of or along w/ spinach.
