Grilled Chicken is the Perfect Tailgate Food

Categorized: food and drink | 4 comments

With the weather getting colder, some people will claim it is time to put away the barbeque pits and grills.  However the heartier among us understand that colder weather just means it is football season and that along with football comes tailgates.  Those same people know that with tailgate parties comes great grilled food and grilled chicken is no exception to that rule.  While brats and hamburgers have always been considered the best of the best when talking about cookout food, grilled chicken has been rocketing up the list of most loved.

Chicken has found its way into the hearts and minds of some of the most devoted grillers not because it can be cheaper than some of the other foods that are used in tailgates (though that is never a negative) but because it just tastes so darn good, especially when chilled in a good BBQ chicken marinade.  There is also something to be said for that fact that there are literally hundreds of different recipes for chicken marinades that can be made relatively quickly and easily, right from your own little grill.  The last reason why grilled chicken has found such a following among those who used to gulp down hot dog after hot dog is that chicken is a white meat that is healthier for the average American.

While most people do not consider those who party for hours before a game someone who is interested in making sure they stay healthy, there is something to be said for knowing you are not clogging your arteries all the time.  Some of the most avid football fans are also the most health conscious and they know mixing in a little white meat with their hamburgers and steaks only makes sense.  The taste, the healthy repercussions and the ease in preparation are some of the top reasons while chicken is becoming the king of the cookout.
