Summer Chicken Breast Recipes

The weather is working up to summer now, and I for one can’t wait.  There are so many benefits to the sun being out.  It makes everyone smile, we can spend as much time as we can outdoors and BBQ’s (OH’s favourite).  The good weather also makes me start to think about summer meals, light and fresh and easy to make.  We all love Chicken in our house, but I always seem to serve it up the same way.  So I thought I’d check out some new recipes for inspiration.  Here are 5 ‘Super Simple’ Summer Chicken Breast Recipes to try, I know I will be…
