Grilled chicken breasts - Acid reflux recipe

This GERD friendly "hot off the grill" recipe sizzles with the rustic flavour of fresh sage leaves.  We tuck the sage leaves and other seasonings under the skin of the bone-on breasts, which keeps the meat flavourful and juicy. You can enjoy grilled chicken with the skin on – or you can remove it if you are looking for a lower calorie main course.  It’s perfect for a spur of the moment get together, not just in the summertime, but also throughout the year!  It’s delicious too – so expect some rave reviews!
