Primal+Keto Cooking Made Easy: Devyn’s Grilled Marinated Chicken

Last week I shared with you how I cook my steaks. Today I’m covering another grilled favorite—chicken. A lot of people hesitate to grill chicken, especially skinless chicken breast, and rightly so. Its leanness means that high heat has the propensity to dry it out…unless you know how to marinade well. My daughter, Devyn, came up with what’s become my favorite way to grill chicken. It’s simple and virtually effortless. See what I mean….

Devyn’s Grilled Chicken Recipe


  • 3 skinless chicken breasts (or 5 large chicken thighs)
  • 1/4 cup Primal Kitchen® Greek Dressing and Marinade
  • 1/4 cup Primal Kitchen Italian Dressing and Marinade


If using chicken breast, cut each in half so pieces are roughly the same size and thickness.

Place chicken pieces in a medium sized bowl. Pour both Primal Kitchen Italian and Greeks Dressings and Marinades over the chicken. Turn chicken over to make sure all surface area is well covered.

Marinate for 30 minutes to an hour in the refrigerator.

Take the chicken out of the refrigerator and let come to room temperature for 10-15 minutes. Light the grill in the meantime at a medium setting.

Remove the chicken pieces from the marinade and place on the preheated grill. Cook for about 4 minutes per side or until there’s a nice char on the outside and juices run clear (internal temperature should be about 156 ºF).

If you’re cooking chicken thighs, grill on each side for 3-4 minutes per side depending on size.

Cover for 5 minutes once done cooking.

Serve and enjoy!

This Is Us

Good morning + happy Monday! How was your weekend? I always sit down and imagine you guys in all corners of the country – some with sunny, hot weather and others maybe with some chilly rain. And I know some of you are reading on the other side of the planet! In our corner of the earth, we had sun followed by lots of clouds and then finally cold rain. It wasn’t the most summery weekend.

Friday Happy Hour + Porch Time

Birch and I love to wait on the porch for Thomas to come home from work on Fridays! Then we have happy hour out there while we catch up.

I opened one of my Scout + Cellar wines – a Zinfandel from California. ‘Twas quite good!

Our fridge was empty and we ended up getting takeout tacos from La Michoacana. They were authentically delicious!

Birch loved his pouch + puffs!

Thomas and I watched the first two episodes of the new Handmaid’s Tale. It might be my favorite show of all time. It’s so well done. If you haven’t seen it yet, go watch!!

Saturday Workout

Birch woke up at 5:30 and T and I traded off trying to rock him back to sleep. I was dragging a bit and wanted to crawl back in bed, but I opted to go to my favorite gym class since it had been a few weeks and was so glad I did!

I never regret a workout. Like my latest fanny pack!?


The best post-workout snack. I love having a fridge of watermelon in the summertime!

I had a bigger breakfast after my shower. Yogurt + crumbled raspberry bar + almond butter + banana.


Later on, I had a smoked salmon, cheddar cheese and veggie sandwich. Plus peppers with blue cheese dip.

A Visit To The Country

Thomas’s cousin, Blaine, and his wife, Haley, came down for a day visit all afternoon. We headed to Jefferson Vineyards after catching up to get some fresh country air and let Mazen run around a bit.

Girls, relaxing. Haley is due with her first baby the same day I was due with Mazen, August 31!

Photo credit to Mazen! We look kind of warped with our heads at the top of the photo.

Dinner at Three Notch’d

Next stop: Three Notch’d for dinner!

We had pretzel bites to start, naturally. And I had a tofu salad and beer sampler with a delicious honeysuckle summer ale!

Love our lobster high chair! B tried some mac and cheese and tofu!

Thomas and I had ice cream after the kids were in bed.

Cozy, Rainy Sunday

We had a snuggly morning at home. Thomas made biscuits and eggs for breakfast. Nona took Mazen bowling and to lunch, and we took Birch to the gym. It poured down rain all day, but it was a cozy time.
