Once, you get those strawberries home, you can make the strawberry salsa and it will stay good in your refrigerator for up to 7 days. But you can freeze it in an air tight container for use anytime. Believe me you will use it often!

  2. Does anyone have a suggestion for what temperature and how long to cook the chicken if done in the oven instead of the grill?
    Thank you!

    • I go with 165 degrees for doneness. The amount of time will depend on the thickness and type of chicken.
