This is a simple basic (but still delicious) recipe for grilling chicken breasts. If you'd like to use barbeque sauce on your chicken to add more flavor, follow this recipe but wait to add the sauce until just before it is cooked through to prevent the sauce from burning.
If you prefer to use a marinade, that should be done prior to cooking. After you've marinated the chicken breasts according to your recipe, (or bottle directions) you can cook the breasts as follows.
What You'll Need
Figure on serving one or two whole chicken breasts per person.
Boneless Chicken Breasts
Salt and Pepper
*A Hot Grill
Pre heat your charcoal or gas grill to medium-high heat.
Rub Olive oil over both sides of the chicken breasts.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Place chicken breasts on the grill.
Grill until just cooked through, about 5 or 6 minutes per side- depending on thickness of breasts.
Remove from grill and serve immediately.
