One GRITS Journey To Convert Beloved Southern Recipes to Paleo Approved, and Darn GOOD too!

This is my story of how I am striving to change my family's life, nutritionally, for the better. Here in the deep South Paleo is a foreign word. No one has heard of it, and gluten free is really almost as unheard of...
After reading Gary Taubes enlightning GOOD CALORIES, BAD CALORIES I was determine to change! Armed with my own two hands, the internet (thank God for AMAZON.com), and all those wonderful blogs and podcasts available now, I am beginning my journey.
Please feel free to join me as I try to adapt all of our Southern Favorites into Paleo Appropriate Scrumptiousness!!! (and all Gluten Free) I will try to post all of the good ones, and may even blog about some failures along the way.

I think I just made the best Marinated Grilled Chicken of my Life Ya'll!

Have you ever tried Sweet tea for a marinade base???? WOW!
I really think we had the best grilled chicken we have ever made. It was SUPER moist, the skin was crackly, it was Georgous and so great.
We ate late, and scarfed it up so fast I didn't get a pic. I will try and post one next time we make it.. There will be a next time SOON! Yes, Mam~ it was so good I would eat it again tomorrow. Wish there were leftovers!!!!

Sweet Tea Grilled Chicken
1 pack bone-in chicken breast (6 or so breast)
1 qt sweet tea (more if you do more meat)
1 T poultry seasoning
1 T sea salt
fresh ground pepper, to taste

Place all together in a large ziploc, or large Pyrex. Marinate atleast 6 hours, or overnight. Turn it when you remember so that it is all coated well.
Grill it up and ENJOY!!!!!! (full bone-in breasts take awhile on the grill, be patient!!!!) Hubbie says he grilled it over a mediumish heat...
I am not the grill master, but I think it was the marinade that made it soooo very juicy and wonderfully tasty!!!!

( I used Splenda in our sweet tea, but you can just use real sugar if you want to... Its just the marinade, and you dump most of the marinade down the sink, not too much sugar content actually in what you eat!)
