Juicy Grilled Chicken Breasts

GrilledChickenBreasts

INGREDIENTS:

Boneless, skinless chicken breasts (1 per person)
Garlic granules, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Sea salt, to taste

**Check out our Grocery Shopping Guide for our tips on selecting the most additive-free versions of these ingredients.

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat outdoor grill to high heat – about 350-400 degrees.

Meanwhile, place each breast (one at a time) into a gallon-sized Ziploc bag. Seal the bag and squeeze out excess air. Place the bag on a cutting board, and beat the chicken with the flat side of a meat mallet until it is about 1/2-inch thick.

This will help the meat cook more quickly so it will be more moist.

Cut each flattened breast in half and set aside.

Repeat the process above for each breast.

Season both sides of each piece of meat with garlic granules, salt and pepper.

Place meat onto preheated grill – no oil is needed as long as the grill is nice and hot… and you don’t try to flip the meat too soon.

Cook for about 4 minutes, until bottom side is done and removes easily from the grill.

Flip and cook each piece about another 4 minutes, until juices run clear and internal temperature of each piece reaches 165 degrees.

Remove meat from grill, cover loosely with foil, and allow it to “rest” for about 5 minutes before slicing, so the juices can redistribute throughout the meat (instead of running out on to your dinner plate!).
