How To Grill Chicken Breast

If using a charcoal grill, you can gauge the temperature by holding your hand five inches above the cooking grate. If you can keep it there comfortably for 4-6 seconds, it’s at medium heat.

Cover the grill and let the chicken cook for 5-7 minutes, then use tongs to flip the breasts over. Grill for 5-7 minutes longer, or until a thermometer reads 165°.

Test Kitchen tip: If you plan to brush on a sweet glaze such as barbecue sauce, wait until the last few minutes of cooking. This will keep the outside of the chicken from getting too dark from the sugars in the sauce.

Remove the chicken from the grill, cover with foil and let the chicken rest. This is key to keeping the chicken tender. Letting the meat rest for five minutes or so gives the juices inside time to redistribute (instead of running out on your plate). By the time the table’s set, your grilled chicken will be ready.

Grilled chicken is a healthy, delicious main course to serve by itself-but you can also do many other things with it. You can put grilled chicken in just about anything: sliced on top of salads, stuffed into sandwiches, shredded for chicken soups or skewered on a kabob.

  1. That sounds so good! I love using sweet flavorings in otherwise savory dishes. I used to use apricot fruit spread a lot, I need to start doing that again. 🙂

    Love our Carne Asada marinade for flank steaks! A favorite since we went to AZ and had an amazing steak there! I’d serve it with the Black Bean Fiesta for sure!

    Rotisserrie chicken on the grill with the Bourbon and Brown Sugar beans. I love doing the chicken this way because it’s sooo easy and sooo good! Thanks for the chance to win. 🙂

  4. Mom Knows Best & this delicious chicken marinade is simple as 1 cup Italian Dressing (FF works too) + Honey + Fresh Lime Juice & I have served it with Bushs ‘Southern Pit Beans’. The hint of honey & fresh flavors that come through the chicken pair well with the Southern Pit Beans. Serve with a side of Cornbread & you have a delicious Southern Grilled Fare.

    I love a barbequed chicken breast and I combine 2 kinds of Bush’s grillin” beans together. This summer for cookouts, I’ve used the Steakhouse recipe and the Bourbon and brown sugar together since I couldn’t decide which one I liked better!!

    Apricot Lemon Glazed Chicken breasts, served with Bush’s ONION Baked beans. The onion flavor in the beans compliments the apricot and lemon flavors in the chicken!

    I make a delicious orange chipotle BBQ sauce for chicken. Everybody loves it, and it makes the house smell great! I’d serve the sweet mesquite beans with it, I think.

    I would love to try this new recipe out. A chicken recipe that I would make would be grilled lime chicken with the Bush’s Black Bean Fiesta on the side. I make lime chicken all the time!

  12. Ashlee

    I would do a spicy bbq chicken with the southern pit bbq beans. I make spicy bbq chicken often for our family because it is quick, easy cleanup and everyone enjoys it.

  13. Pam Shank

    We love BBQ pork chops on the grill with a homemade rub and BBQ sauce that I make and served with southern pit barbeque beans

  14. The device of creditreports and ratings in Canada is very similar to that while in the United States, with two of the same reporting agencies mixed up in country: Equifax and TransUnion (Experian, which inserted the Canadian marketplace
    using the purchase of Upper Credit Agencies in 2008, reported the closing 5-6 of its
    Canadian businesses as of April 18, 2009).
