Friday Dinner

Kick things off with a barbecue sliders, grilled corn, and broccoli slaw. Shredded, grilled chicken thighs are dipped in Carolina-style barbecue sauce, a vinegar-based mix with mustard, a little honey, seasonings, and butter. Sides of grilled corn with honey butter (that complement the BBQ sauce perfectly) and creamy broccoli slaw round out the meal.

Get everyone involved with throwing dinner together. One person can shuck the corn and mix the slaw, another can man the grill, and another can assemble the sliders. Who’s on cleanup duty? We suggest you draw straws for that one.
