Sticky Grilled Chicken #Recipe @PegCochran

Do you like to barbecue? I love it. I was a hold out for a gas grill for the longest time but I caved and bought one and I'm so glad I did.  It's so easy to throw some meat (and even veggies) on the grill and produce dinner in no time at all.  Plus you can stand outside in the nice weather while you cook!


1/2 c. low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 c. balsamic vinegar
3 tbsp. honey
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 green onions, chopped
1 lb. chicken drumsticks or thighs
2 tbsp. Sesame seeds, for garnish


Whisk together soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, honey, garlic and green onions. Reserve 1/2 cup marinade for brushing on chicken after grilling.

Put chicken in a large Ziploc bag or baking dish and pour marinade over it. Let chicken marinate in the refrigerator at least 3 hours, or up to overnight.

Heat grill to high. Add chicken, basting occasionally until chicken is cooked through. This will take 10 to 12 minutes per side (depending on 
thickness). No, this wasn't cooked on a grill.  Why you ask?  Because I got the grill started, put the chicken on and then...I ran out of propane!  Good news is you can bake this in the oven!

Garnish with sesame seeds and serve.  (And I forgot the sesame seeds!)



“The clever ‘Dear Reader’ asides serve up just the right amount of dry wit, and the occasional blog post snippet provides readers with some helpful tips alongside their mystery. The case is always well plotted, and the fictitious Michigan small-town setting provides an intriguing supporting cast with a bevy of interesting personalities. Readers will root for Shelby to solve the case and stay on the edge of their seats until she does.”

A Park Avenue princess discovers the dark side of 1930s New York when a debutante ball turns deadly in this gripping historical mystery for readers of Victoria Thompson, Anne Perry, and Rhys Bowen.

Manhattan, 1938. Tired of being trapped in the gilded cage of her family’s expectations, Elizabeth Adams has done what no self-respecting socialite would think to do: She’s gotten herself a job. Although Elizabeth’s dream is to one day see her photographs on the front page of the Daily Trumpet, for now she’s working her way up as the newsroom’s gal Friday.

But fetching coffee isn’t exactly her idea of fun, so when veteran reporter Ralph Kaminsky needs a photographer to fill in for a last-minute assignment, Elizabeth jumps at the chance. At the Waldorf Hotel, Elizabeth is tasked with tracking down the season’s “It girl,” Gloria DeWitt, who will be making her society debut. Working her own connections to New York’s upper crust, Elizabeth manages to land an exclusive interview with Gloria.

Then Gloria’s stepmother is shot dead in a Waldorf bathroom, placing Elizabeth at the scene of a headline-worthy scandal: “Murder of a Society Dame.” Now Elizabeth will have to get the scoop on the killer before her good name gets dragged through the gossip columns—or worse. . . .

From a Goodreads Review:

"What absolute fun! Penned with wit, humor and style, MURDER, SHE REPORTED gets my definite, “Yes!”
