To say we've become obsessed with our grill as of late is an understatement. We've been scouring the internet, old cookbooks, and restaurant menus for ideas to try at home. I'm proud to say that mostly all of our attempts have been successful, so get ready for quite a few grilling recipes here on Mostly Homemade Mom in the coming weeks!

We have a few big purchases coming up and, in an effort to save as much money as possible, I've been really stalking the grocery sales and coupon deals to stock up on the lowest prices possible. Besides our house payment, food is our next biggest monthly expense and, with three growing boys, we go through a lot of meat! My plan is to buy in bulk the next time I see a cheap chicken sale and make up a lot of freezer bags with chicken and marinade - to save the step later on when we're ready for dinner.

This Asian Grilled Chicken Skewers recipe is perfect for that plan! Boneless chicken tenderloins marinading in a sweet Asian soy sauce and then grilled on skewers. This was definitely a meal the whole family enjoyed and asked for seconds!
