Alright so we visited Texas during Spring Break in Early April 2017. We arrived in Austin and enjoyed our first full day on Sunday down in Gruene. It was about a 40 minute drive from our hotel and TOTALLY worth the visit. We got to check out Gruene Hall where some of the most famous country singers have performed. The locals told us that Leann Rimes had been there two weeks previous to our trip. She randomly appeared and played a free performance. Apparently that’s typical at Gruene Hall so you just never know who you may run into!
Housed next door is a old cotton gin building. Yes, Cotton in Texas is apparently a thing that us midwestern folks don’t learn about! Anyhow, the Gristmill Restaurant sits above the Guadalupe River. In 1977 the owners found the property was for sale and decided to purchase this hidden gem. Since then they have been proudly serving some amazing food! I seriously can’t wait to go back to Gruene and explore. I may even end up in the kitchen at the Gristmill and may never leave 😉
Anyhow, we sat down to eat amongst the oak trees on a Sunday afternoon. The atmosphere was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. It was quaint, breezy and once the food came, mesmerizing! I was in Texas on “business” and told our waitress to bring us a sample of their best dishes. Well, apparently that saying “Everything is bigger in Texas” is the absolute honest to God truth! This is what we were served….
Alright ya’ll came here for the recipe, so let’s get you the best grilled chicken recipe, shall we?
How do you make the best grilled chicken recipe?
Seriously, all you do is grab a Ziploc bag (or bowl with Reynolds wrap will work too) and put all the marinade ingredients in. Mix it up and add your chicken breasts. Let it sit in the refrigerator and marinate for a minimum of 2 hours. I recommend over night!
Heat up your grill, ensuring the grill is clean and your grates are coated properly to ensure the chicken breasts don’t stick. Sprinkle the chicken with your favorite steak seasoning and place the chicken breasts on a hot grill and let cook on both sides, 3-4 minutes (may take longer if you have thicker chicken breasts). Once the chicken has cooked through and has those beautiful grill marks from the sugar in the honey crystallizing, remove from the grill and allow to rest for 2-3 minutes before cutting!
