we did see one shower earlier. we're just looking at dry back to the west around chicago, this is what i'm talking about, we've seen moisture in storms come through parts of oklahoma, missouri, right on in towards ccago and then upand over our area. that's why the heat is building down to the south. that's why we continue to have this stormy track.oi that's g to be the case the next couple of days too. it's also going to give us a chance for those storms tomorrow. tomorrow high temperature of 93 degrees. an early storm. by early i'm talking about t sendi kids out to the bus stop, but becoming sunny and rather hot. here is that school day forecast. degrees at the bus stop with some showers, maybe some thunderstorms. not everywhere, but some could be on the heavy side. think about that. recess, temperature of 86 really looking good out there for the kids at recess. 92 by the time we're picking up the kids. it's going to be a hot day. not super humid but i am going 93 for the official high tomorrow. if we do hit 93, that will be the hottest day we've seen so

5:49 pm
the grill. >> how do we make the chicken rlly rock? >> this is more fun to say than just butterflying the chicken.l alt is is cutting the backbone out of the chicken. it's a lotasier than it sounds. s scissor or a knife cutting straight down the back. you've got to be ready to cut through bones. the end result is worth it. another thing is dry run. inead of getting the skin all wet and the bird all wet and taking up way too much space, all you need is a plate. >> this is goiim to be le chili chicken. >> correct. what we have is a generous amount of salt. i like to get a little bit of lime swret zest in there also. is is pepper that's used in middle eastern and greek cuisine. smoked pap rerika.

has pulled out of the skin. that's the salt doing its job. so a towel, paper towel, your best napkins, whatever you prefer to use. you want to dab the skin dry. dry skin equals krscrispy skin. >> what do you recommend for temperature of the grill? >> 300, 350. i prefer on the lower side, but you wan bring your grill up to about0, 50 degrees above where you want it. when you open the lid, you're going to lose about 50 degrees of heat. eind that hot spot and keep your breast towards cooler side of the grill. your legs will be moreover some dire heato they'll cook a little bit faster and then you'll get the breast and the leg finished at the same time. so these are grillaves which you can use anything. plate saute pan or a that you don't have too much love. this isn't putting a lot of weight on the chicken, but it is
