Recipes to Close Out the BBQ Season!

A recipe here and a new recipe there. You can never have too many recipes to try on the bbq! We’re here to pass on a few more for you to try before the bbq season is over. All of these recipes include our favourite – chicken, but stay tuned for some of our fall recipes that will include pork, beef, and turkey.

For some of us, BBQing is a year-round endeavour and neither rain nor snowfall will keep us from the grill. For those of us that retire the grill for the winter sometime after labour day, we’d like to suggest that you try at least one of these fantastic recipes before the close out of the bbq season. Grab your apron, invite some friends and get the grill ready – your tastebuds will thank you.

A Few “Did You Know?” Facts

  • You can’t see, smell or taste bacteria, so keep your kitchen clean to keep it safe.
  • You can avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients.
  • Leftovers are great, but make sure to chill them within two hours.
  • Tzatziki is traditionally made with a higher fat Greek-style yogurt which is quite thick as the liquid whey has been drained off. If you don’t have Greek yogurt you can drain the plain yogurt either in a fine mesh sieve, a colander lined with cheesecloth, or a clean, lint-free dish towel. Set in a fridge over a bowl to drain for at least four hours or overnight.

BBQ Chicken Caprese Flatbread

Great for a crowd as everyone can make their own and top them how they like them. Try this recipe with chicken thighs, grape tomatoes, boccocini cheese and arugula. Get the full recipe here.

For a twist to this recipe…

Cook up some chicken breasts, make a few different sauces like a bbq, a creamy dill, or sweet and sour. Chop up some veggies, shred some cheese and voila – a different variation of a flatbread. You could also have a party where people bring their own items to contribute to the dinner. Let them know that you will provide the grill and the flatbreads and see what types of toppings are brought. It could get interesting and some new recipes may just be created – but we know it will be alot of fun as well!
