Place onto paper toweled plate and season well with Seasoning, I had leftover seasoning, so, DON’T USE ALL.
Charcoal Grilling Tip: If it tastes like straight up smoke… You’re doing it wrong! We build a hill in center of grill. Light charcoal (We used Regular Charcoal). Once coals are ashy grey, they are ready. Prop Grill Open, using a Slightly crushed pop can, ON IT’S SIDE. Chicken: Lay Chicken on outer part of grill (Outside hill). Once Chicken isn’t sticking to grate, so much, it’s ready to flip. Flip once, that’s it (Unless applying Sauce and Thickening the Sauce, that’s more flipping). Cook til Thermometer reads correct temp.

Up to 1/2tsp Vanilla Extract
1tsp Cocoa/Cocao Powder
In blender, blend Bananas, Vanilla, honey, Cocoa. BUTTER FLAVOR (Or, Organic Coconut Oil Spray) a Muffin Pan. Pour blended ingredients into pan.
