Grilled Southwestern Chicken

Once upon a time I had a baby. And then another. And another. And another. Our church has an amazing meals ministry and the lovely ladies who make meals are so talented I think part of the reason I keep having babies is to have meals delivered šŸ™‚ Six weeks ago we welcomed our newest little boy into our family. He is thoroughly adorable and we’re all in love with him! My wonderful friend Mindy brought us a meal and it was SOOOO good! She made us this amazing grilled chicken and I had to get the recipe right away. I made this tonight and we’ve declared it to be our new favorite chicken. It’s amazing! I served it with our favorite rice and grilled up some veggies. The perfect summer meal!
