Grilled Chicken Breasts with Lemon and  Fresh Herbs
Warm Cabbage Pasta Salad

Cooking time:  30 minutes for menu          Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

       We're into lemon this week.... and fresh herbs.  This should finish the cabbage.  You could use skin-on chicken breasts or thighs and stuff the marinade under the skin.  Cooking time would be longer if they were also bone-in.

Total time: 30 minutes
    You can use any combination of herbs you have: more of some and less of others, just try for 4 tbs total.  Cook the chicken a little slower, over indirect heat, to keep them moist and not burn the herbs... too much...
