The BEST Grilled Chicken at Home
Before grilling, the chicken is marinated in olive oil, lemon, honey, and some delicious spices.
GRILLED CHICKEN TIPS:
Use chicken tenderloins, they cook up quick. If you don’t have tenderloins, you can make your own by butterflying a whole breast or pounding it out and cut into strips with a sharp knife.
Marinate or brine ahead of time for grilled chicken that’s full of flavor.
Prep your grill. Make sure the grates are clean and rub a little oil or non-stick grill spray onto the (clean and preheated) grates right before cooking so the chicken doesn’t stick.
Do not use high heat. Cook chicken over medium, indirect heat on the grill.
Close the lid. Food cooks quicker and evenly when the grill lid is closed.
Use a thermometer. Chicken should be cooked to 165°F, so you should use a meat or instant-read thermometer to check that the chicken is done. Insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the thickest piece. If you don’t have a thermometer, simply cut into a thick piece to make sure the juices run clear and that the meat is opaque and not translucent or pink
