How to Grill Chicken Breasts –


Chicken for dinner is one of the most common meals in just about every house. And Grilling is one of my favorite ways to cook chicken. Here I show you how to grill off chicken breasts, getting those very cool looking grill marks and developing a flavorful exterior, while still making sure the inside is tender and juicy.

Like most chicken breast recipes, the key here is to use really high heat to sear off the chicken, cooking it quickly so it does not dry out, and getting that great slightly charred flavor. I’m simply cooking the chicken with salt, pepper and olive oil, but it’s the same cooking techniques for marinaded or spice rubbed chicken.

Give it try and let me know how it goes.

  1. I cooked it, but used a seasoning rub instead.  The rub ended up getting burnt, but besides that the chicken was great!  Exciting to cook juicy chicken instead of dried out chicken!

  2. I came across your video upon looking for different ways to grill chicken breasts, and thought I would give your method a try — I thought I would post a comment about it (which I never do) and tell you that I did it exactly as you said, and it turned out absolutely perfect.  In fact, I am sitting here eating my chicken over spinach salad as I'm typing this.  I will definitely do this again.  Thank you very much for posting this video — I look forward to checking out other recipes that you have posted.

  3. Another guy grilling chicken incorrectly…You should be grilling chicken breasts around 400 degrees for a longer amount of time. Leave them on the grill for 10-15 mins depending on thickness and leave them there. Flip once and grill 10-15 additional mins. The goal is to roast the breasts…not sear them like steak. Still get the same grill lines but your chicken will be moist — not tough and rubbery like this looks.
