Chicken breasts on the grill are the perfect summer meal-quick and healthy. We used our new BBQ 3000 on our boneless/skinless chicken breasts, which is great for both flavor and color. Feel free to choose your favorite seasoning.

  • 8 chicken breast pieces, boneless/skinless
  • 1-2 TB. olive oil
  • 1 TB. BBQ 3000

Wash chicken, pat dry. Cut off any skin/fat bits. Place the chicken on a plate and drizzle both sides with olive oil. This keeps them from sticking to the grill and helps keep the meat juicy. Rub both sides of the chicken with BBQ 3000. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 1 hour to let the flavors develop - even 15 minutes helps. While the chicken is in the fridge, get the grill ready. If you are still concerned about the chicken sticking to the grill, rub the grill top with olive oil. When the coals are ready, a nice moderately high heat, place the chicken on the grill directly over the coals. Cover and cook for about 3-5 minutes until nicely browned on the bottom, turn chicken over and cook until finished, another 3-5 minutes or so. Put the chicken on a plate to rest and to collect the juices. For bone-in, skin on chicken breasts, move hot coals to the sides of the grill. Sear the chicken, skin side down over moderately high heat with the lid on until well browned, 3-5 minutes. Turn and move the chicken to the middle of the grill. Finish grilling over indirect heat, bone side down with the lid on until cooked through, 10-15 minutes.
