Last week was the first week of summer school and I kind of panicked! I can't believe we hadn't had our first summer barbeque yet!
We spent the first week of summer in Disney and the week after we literally just sat around the house unpacking from our Disney vacation, so when summer school started, it was just the kick I needed to decide to have our first summer barbeque!

We stopped at Price Chopper to pick up the staples: Certified Angus Beef, chicken tenderloins, slaw, and watermelon.  As we were going to grab some Coca-Cola, we came across the coolers full of beer and inspiration struck! Dave has been loving Redd's Apple Ale so why not marinate the chicken in it! Yum!

To make the marinade, I sprinkled the chicken tenderloins with a mixture of meat and poultry seasonings and then put it in a bowl full of Redd's Apple Ale. I let it marinate overnight to really get the flavor into the chicken.

Redd's Green Apple Ale Chicken:

2 lbs of chicken tenderloins
pinch of garlic
pinch of dried thyme
pinch of onion powder
12 oz bottle of Redd's Green Apple Ale (Tastes delicious with Redd's Apple Ale too!)

1. Apply seasonings to chicken and place in a small bowl.
2. Cover the chicken with Green (or Red!) Apple Ale.
3. Marinate overnight.
4. Heat grill to 450* and grill until cooked through.

We paired the chicken with a delicious summer slaw made with shredded cabbage, carrots, and green apples.  The apples in the slaw paired so well, and really brought out the flavor, of the marinated chicken.

Everyone knows that the beverages at a barbeque are just as important as the food so we always load up. In addition to the Redd's Apple Ale, I got super excited when I saw a whole door full of Leigenkugal's Shandy! I love their Summer Shandy but was even more excited about a new Grapefruit Shandy! I love grapefruit and knew I could make a refreshing bubbly drink with it!

I muddled the raspberries in the glass, added ice and filled the cup 3/4 of the way with the Grapefruit Shandy.  I topped off the glass with some Canada Dry Seltzer water.  It was the perfect "sitting on the back porch" summer drink.  

The whole meal was delicious!
I'll be adding it to my Pinterest recipe arsenal asap so I can make it next summer too.  Price Chopper has an amazing BBQ Pinterest page; you have to check it out! There are so many great ideas there: you'll have to come back and let me know which one you'll be cooking next!

Getting Redd's Green Apple Ale at Price Chopper was such a great experience and tastes so delicious that I love to continue the great drinks with my friends at The Town Crier, The Seaport Inn & Marina, or the Ice Chest in  Fairhaven!
