Grilled Chicken 101

How to grill chicken on the BBQ. I love BBQ season (which is year-round on the west coast! Yeah, you should move here).

  • 2-4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh herbs, chopped (parsley, thyme, or basil are my faves)
  • A little salt and pepper

Mix the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Put the chicken into a baking pan. Pour the marinade over top and spread it around. Let it marinate in the refrigerator for awhile (usually 30 min). Fire up the BBQ, and let it warm up on medium heat. Grill chicken for 15 min with the lid closed. Turn over at least once. Cut the chicken open to check that it’s cooked through before serving.
