Happy Monday!

Butters and I have not moved off the couch since Saturday night.

Because, guys, we just went to our very first So Cal Corgi Beach Day over the weekend!

It was…EPIC. Legit epic. There were so many corgis, including baby corgis, and even one in a wheelchair wearing a cape and sunglasses!

I basically wanted to take every single corgi home.

But don’t worry. I didn’t.

Instead, I came home and grilled lots of chicken breasts.

But not just any chicken breasts.

I soaked the crap out of them with the best marinade ever!

All you need is some pantry-friendly ingredients.

That’s it. Marinate them and throw them on the grill.

Serve with veggies or in quesadillas or even with some scrambled eggs with your breakfast. It’ll be a huge staple in your household this summer!
