We here at Nissan of Lake Charles have some of the best summer barbecue recipes to ever hit the grill!
- Grilled Veggie Skewers – A quick-to-eat treat, grilled veggie skewers require the following ingredients: cherry tomatoes, eggplant in chunks, olive oil, Tabasco Original Red Sauce, salt, pepper, sugar, and minced cilantro. Preheat the grill while soaking wooden skewers to avoid burning them. Whisk the salt, pepper, sugar, cilantro, Tabasco sauce, and olive oil together. Slide the tomatoes and eggplant onto the skewers with space in between. Cover them in the mixed sauce then place them on the grill. When the eggplant is soft or has grill marks, turn them over.
- Grilled Buffalo Chicken – To make grilled buffalo chicken, gather the following ingredients: hot sauce, unsalted butter, ketchup, boneless and skinless chicken breasts, ranch dressing, and hamburger buns. Preheat the grill while mixing the hot sauce, butter, and ketchup in a bowl. Add the chicken and toss to coat it. Let it marinate for 20 minutes before removing the chicken. Grill the chicken until it reaches 165 degrees on the inside. Grill the hamburger buns until lightly toasted then add the chicken and dressing. Add blue cheese-apple slaw for an added burst of flavor.
