Grilled BBQ Chicken Breast
Kick off the grilling season with this delicious Grilled BBQ Chicken Breast recipe. Made with a quick barbecue chicken marinade, you’ll have juicy chicken breasts in no time. Perfect for enjoying on their own or a part of a salad or burger!
Pound the chicken with a meat mallet to even out their thickness and make it less thick.
In a bowl, mix together the marinade ingredients (except for the BBQ sauce)
Add in the chicken and coat well with the marinade.
Cover and let it marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Preheat grill to medium heat.
Spray the grill rack with some oil spray.
Grill the chicken until fully cooked, about 7-8 minutes on each side or until it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.
Brush the chicken breast with bbq sauce during the last couple of minutes of cooking.
Transfer to a plate and cover with foil wrap to rest for a few minutes before serving.
Be careful to not cross contaminated with the BBQ sauce. If you are brushing the chicken with BBQ sauce, I would not recommend reusing the BBQ sauce for serving.

You can marinate chicken up to 2 days ahead of time. Store in an airtight container.
You can grill the chicken in the oven, indoor grill, or outdoor grill. For the best flavor, I recommend grilling outdoor for the char flavor.
I recommend pounding the chicken breasts so that they aren’t super thick. If your breasts are too thick, the outer section will dry out before the middle is cooked through.
