Barbecued chicken thighs and onion fill these wraps for a tasty dinner. † Itís a surprise to find former football greats enjoying cooking for the family. † In a recent interview with Mike Golic, Host of ESPN Radioís ďMike & Mike in the MorningĒ show, he told me, ďIím a simple cook, I just throw everything on the grill. Ē† And thatís just what he does.
Juicy boneless, skinless chicken thighs, sliced onion and corn on the cob all cook together in 10 minutes on the grill.
For the corn on the cob, he peels the corn and wraps it in foil with butter and Parmesan cheese.
Mike uses a charcoal grill with quick-lighting briquettes. Iíve adapted his recipe for this quick barbecue dinner with a guide to using a gas or stove-top grill.
