Grilled Chicken Pinwheels
Having a family spread out across 4 states from Nevada, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Florida the summertime often provides a perfect opportunity to get together for the annual family reunion.
This year marks the 50th birthday celebration of my younger sister, Carolyn, and to celebrate she and my brother in law, Roger, rented a seven bedroom house on the beach. Both of them having long time careers in the casino industry coupled with immensely friendly families on both sides, the continuous guest arrivals create activity like a virtual revolving hotel.
Given the easy nature of our hosts, and many of the guests being from the hospitality industry, it’s pretty much a 24/7 party. Meals just appear with little discussion. From Bloody Mary’s and Breakfast burritos to leftovers from the day before someone is always discreetly in the kitchen whipping up their own contribution to the festivities so there is always plenty of really good food to eat any time of the day.
This morning I’m going to prepare Grilled Chicken Pinwheels which are easy,colorful, and packed with flavor that we will grill for dinner.
Guests can eat leftover pinwheels cold or warmed in the microwave; either tomorrow, or in the middle of the night since the large front porch with the view of the beach seems to capture a large crowd buzzing with conversation until the early morning hours.
With my Grilled Chicken Pinwheels done, I am off to help round up the crowds for the beach, this takes much longer than preparing dinner. Hope you enjoy as many happy memories at your summer family reunion!
