Summer produce makes every cold, dark winter day worth it.

Summer squashtomatoescucumbers, and corn practically transform themselves into gorgeous, mouthwatering meals. And when the weather’s warm, you belong outside in a breezy maxi dress, not sweating in a hot kitchen. This easy summer dinner idea doesn’t take long to whip up and won’t use every single pan and dish in the kitchen. So, it’s light and perfect for those balmy nights when the sun’s still out, it’s 85 degrees and you really don’t want to be standing at the stove. 

But …. Roast Chicken?

News flash: Roast chicken doesn’t have to be boring. So instead of throwing the whole bird into the oven again, get creative. Try a different cut that’s seasoned perfectly. Like our roasted drumsticks with tomatoes and red onion recipe.

Who knew juicy tomatoes pair so magically with chicken? It’s just the centerpiece for your next backyard soiree. Day or night. It’s gorgeous out — this calls for dinner under the stars!
