If I don’t have time to marinate anything in a Ziploc bag overnight, means neither do you. During cooler months I got into a habit of making a batch of baked chicken breast, however in summer throwing the most expensive cut of chicken on a grill is the answer.

How to Make Best Grilled Chicken Breast

  • Don’t overcook. Long cooking time dries the meat out and breast is already the driest part of chicken.
  • Use silicone grilling mats for even more moist chicken. Keep in mind chicken takes longer to cook but meat comes out juicier. I have these sheets and they are wonderful!
  • Remember it’s a chicken breast. So, if you expect fatty juicy meat, go for thighs.

How to Season Grilled Chicken Breast

I’m Ukrainian so I believe fresh garlic makes everything taste better.
