Chicken Bratwurst and Onions with Broccoli Slaw Salad
The beauty of this easy grilling recipe (seriously, it takes 25 minutes total!) is you can change up the type of bratwurst or even use hot dogs. Seasonal produce like sweet corn, tomatoes, and jalapeño peppers gives these brats loads of fresh flavor. Grill the corn before mixing it into the relish for an extra special touch.
Cooking bratwurst in beer before cooking keeps the outside from burning while ensuring the inside is flavorful and juicy. Use a grill pan to stay out of the heat while still achieving those beautiful grill marks. Pop open a cold one and enjoy.
