Grilling Up Some Chicken

Grilling Good Eats 2By Mike Thayer

Chicken is SO darn tasty when prepared properly on the grill, tender, juicy meat with a hint of smoke - it's another dose of YUM!  This basic recipe let's that chicken shine!

Chicken Breast Simplicity

Boneless/skinless chicken breast is perhaps the most popular cut of chicken to grill and when it’s properly prepared, it’s tough to beat.


  • 8 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Four tablespoons of Cookies Flavor Enhancer or your favorite poultry rub

While your charcoal fire is getting established, coat the chicken with the olive oil and rub and set aside. When your fire is hot, place your chicken breasts near the hot spot on the grill, but not quite over it, presentation side down. Don’t walk away, the olive oil is going to drip so you’ll need to be around in case there are any flare ups. Grill for about three minutes with the lid off to get those nice grill marks and a little caramelization, then flip over to the lower heat side of the grill with the lid on to let them finish cooking to that 165 degree internal temperature and ultimate juiciness, about 15 - 20 minutes. Let the breasts rest for about five minutes before serving. A brushing of warm garlic butter is optional. This dish is excellent paired with just about anything, making it a go-to, ’old reliable’ recipe.
