How to Cook Garlic Butter Chicken on the Stove:

Cooking chicken on the skillet is an easy to way to cook chicken breast indoors. We recommend using a cast iron skillet to cook chicken. The texture and the flavor of the chicken will be similar to when it is cooked on the griddle.

Make sure to use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature to ensure the chicken is thoroughly cooked before serving. Cooking chicken on a skillet takes about 15 minutes

Garlic Butter Ingredients:

When we made this recipe we added the garlic butter ingredients directly on the chicken breast. But if you prefer you can combine melted butter with the Italian seasoning with the minced garlic in a bowl.

Once the chicken is cooked, you can baste this mixture onto the chicken for a delicious dish.

Feel free to add in fresh herbs to your garlic butter recipe. We recommend fresh parsley, basil or rosemary. You can even add in some fresh parmesan, squeeze in fresh lemon juice and chili powder for an extra spice.

Recipe Tips:

  • Meat Thermometer – Use an instant-read meat thermometer to make sure that the chicken is cooked. This ensure that it is cooked to a safe temperature before serving.
  • Oil the Griddle – You can use canola oil, vegetable oil or coconut oil instead of the avocado oil in this recipe. We just do not recommend using olive oil as it has a low smoke point.
  • Filet Chicken – When cooking chicken on the Blackstone we recommend cooking thin chicken breast. Filet your chicken breast in thin slices.
  • Garlic Butter Sauce – Feel free to change the seasoning of your garlic butter sauce. You can add in soy sauce or use garlic powder.
  • Golden Brown – Cook chicken until it is golden brown and reaches internal temperature of 165 degrees.
  • Lime Juice – Once this chicken is done cooking, squeeze lime juice over the top for added flavor.
  • Flipping Chicken – We recommend on flipping chicken once on the grill. This allows for the chicken to sear a golden brown on each side.
  • Rest Chicken – Before slicing the chicken, we recommend letting the chicken to rest for about 5 minutes. This allows for the juice to lock into the chicken. If you slice the chicken to early the juices release and the chicken could be dryer.

How Long to Cook Chicken on Blackstone:

When preparing your chicken for the griddle, you want to make sure that each chicken breast about the same size. You may have need to filet you chicken or pound it to thin it out.

Make sure to preheat griddle and oil the griddle to ensure that the chicken does not stick. This also creates a nice texture for the chicken.

Place the chicken on the griddle and cook each side for about 4 minutes on each side. Use a meat thermometer to ensure you chicken is cooked thoroughly before serving.

How do you keep Chicken from drying out:

Chicken is an easy meat to grill, cook indoors, or to cook on the Blackstone. But if it isn’t cook properly the chicken can be tough and dried out.

The key to keeping the chicken tender is cooking on a medium high heat. We also recommend cooking thin slice chicken. Thin slice chicken cooks quicker meaning less time on the grill.

Making sure to not overcook the chicken is key. Make sure to use a meat thermometer to ensure your chicken reaches a temperature of 165 degrees.

Adding this butter chicken broth sauce also help to keep the chicken juicy and tender. There are many sauces to add to chicken, but this garlic butter one is one of my favorites.

What type of Garlic do I use?

We like using the jarred minced garlic as it is already minced so it makes it easier to add to recipes. But feel free to mince your own garlic or use garlic powder. Fresh or minced garlic will taste better, but use what you have.

Can I use Chicken Thighs for this Recipe?

Yes, you can use boneless chicken thighs for this recipe. The cooking time may be different so just make sure to use your meat thermometer. The garlic butter sauce will taste amazing on chicken thighs, so use the cut of meat that you prefer.

How to Store:

Storing Garlic Butter Chicken is easy to do. Place chicken in an airtight container for up to days. Place in the refrigerator and use it for multiple meals through out the week.

I like to make individual containers so that it is easy to grab and go as we head out the door. This is my husbands favorite meal to make for lunch. We add some rice and vegetables and he can head out the door.

How to Reheat:

When we are ready to reheat grilled chicken, we place on a microwave safe dish and heat. We start with 30 seconds intervals so that we don’t heat to long.

Heating your chicken to long, will dry it out. You can also place in a baking dish and heat in the oven for about 10 minutes. This is the way we do it if we have a lot of chicken leftovers.
