It’s so important to me to prepare for all of our football and family get-togethers during football the season. The last thing I want to do is have to run to the store while we’re hosting company!

Georgia-Pacific and Dollar General will help you stock up on all your hosting essentials this football season. I make sure to stock up on the essentials to cut down on cleanup time and avoid any last minute runs to the store.

I really like to prepare ahead of time when we’re having family get-togethers to watch the big game. One of my other favorite things to do is pre-prepare mouthwatering marinades for the meats we’ll be cooking on the grill.

This mouthwatering marinade is one of my family’s favorites. It’s a little sweet for the lime and a little spicy from the chili. Everyone always loves this recipe, and I love sharing it because it’s so incredibly easy!

I start by adding cut up chicken to a large gallon bag, and then adding the ingredients for the marinade. This recipe just calls for lime juice, olive oil, fresh cilantro, chili powder and salt and pepper. After adding the marinade ingredients to the bag, just seal the bag and mix well.

Then place the marinating chicken in the fridge for 3 – 4 hours. You can also do overnight.

Next heat up your grill with Kingsford® Charcoal. Then cook your chicken over medium heat until done. Kingsford® Charcoal adds another layer of flavor that just can’t be beat. It’s the best way to grill!

We like to eat this chicken just with a simple salad or maybe some potato salad, but you can also make a sandwich out of it too! It’s so good. I hope your family enjoys it as much as we do!
