We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

I was planning to do some chicken halves this afternoon. The marinade calls for mixing over low heat. Not thinking about it I dumped the warm/hot marinade on the chicken halves. Realizing this might not have been the best idea I iced the marinade down and stuck the marinading chicken in the freezer.

I checked the temperature of the chicken and it had reached around 60 from being submersed in the warm marinade. After about 1.5 hours in the freezer the chicken and marinade are around 40. Any recommendations on whether I should cook or pitch the chicken?
