  • Add cheese and remaining parsley to rice; mix lightly. Brush chicken with remaining dressing mixture. Serve with rice mixture.


Chicken can be marinated up to 24 hours before grilling as directed.

How to Check Meat and Poultry Doneness

The easiest way to ensure that cooked meat or poultry is done is to check the internal temperature. Using an accurate food thermometer will take away the guesswork. Simply insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the meat or poultry, avoiding any bones if present. For whole poultry, insert the thermometer into the thickest part of one of the thighs, again taking care to avoid any bones.
