Recipe Tips

  • Pounding the Meat – When we grill chicken, we like to make sure that each chicken breast is the same size and thickness. This ensure that that the chicken gets done at the same time. Use a meat mallet to pound the chicken thin.
  • Marinate Chicken – To make sure that your chicken is not bland, marinate your chicken for at least 30 minutes. You can even marinate it overnight. Marinating your chicken adds so much flavor.
  • Bake Chicken – If you do not want to grill your chicken, you can bake it. Use your broiler for the last 5 minutes to get that crispy topping.

How do I keep the Grilled Chicken Moist?

When you are preparing your chicken to put in the marinade, pierce the chicken with a fork. Piercing the chicken with a fork all over helps the marinade to seep in. This allows the chicken to be juicy and full of flavor.

We recommend marinating the chicken for at last 30 minutes or overnight.
