I don’t have a grill myself, but really want one, and use a small counter top one until I’m able to afford a large outdoor grill. There’s just something about that smoky flavor that I really enjoy, and has the comfortable feeling of home to it. We got my dad’s hand-me-down charcoal one several years ago, but when we moved from Utah we just couldn’t bring it with us.

For those that DO have a grill, here’s another great grilling recipe, perfect with that smoky touch to it!


  • 4 Chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp. Paprika (smoked, if possible)
  • 1 tbsp. Ground cumin
  • 3 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 3 tbsp. Lime juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 ½ tbsp.. Grated lime zest
  • 1 ½ tbsp. Thyme


  1. In bowl, mix the paprika and cumin. Add the lime juice and olive oil.
  2. Place the chicken on a baking sheet, and brush with olive oil mixture. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook the chicken on the grill, until cooked through.
  4. Sprinkle with lime zest and thyme. Serve!

Notes: This goes wonderfully with grilled corn, if you have some!
