What is the Secret to Grilling Moist Chicken?

The key to grilling moist chicken is to use the right combination of marinating ingredients. For marinating, you want to use ingredients that will help to tenderize the chicken. Such as olive oil, lime juice, garlic, cilantro, and cumin.

These ingredients also add a lot of flavor to the chicken. Then, when it comes to grilling, you want to make sure that you use indirect heat. Which will help to keep the chicken moist and juicy.

Also, make sure that you keep an eye on the temperature, as it should not be too hot or too cold. Also check out our grilled chicken thigh recipes.

What Not to Do When Grilling Chicken?

One of the biggest mistakes you can make when grilling chicken is to overcook it. This can cause the chicken to become dry and rubbery.

You also want to avoid using too much oil or butter when grilling, as this can cause flare-ups. Finally, make sure that you are cooking the chicken at the right temperature. If it is too low, the chicken will not cook through properly.
