Grilling Times: Boneless Chicken Breast

Grilling Chicken

Chicken breast is a fairly easy piece to grill. Make sure your grill temperature is set medium-high, somewhere between 375 °F  to 450 °F.  Check your propane before starting to make sure you get your grill nice and hot! Once your grill is ready to get cooking, toss your boneless chicken breasts on. Cook for about 10 minutes on each side, being sure to flip thoughtfully with a sturdy set of tongs. Your chicken should be nicely browned on each side once your total 20 minutes are up. Before serving, check the internal temperature. This should be right around 150-165. If your meat needs a couple more minutes, toss it back on the grill while watching carefully as to not overcook.

Preparing Chicken

Now that you have your chicken grilled to perfection, you can serve it any way you like! I like rubbing on some taco seasoning before grilling and squeezing some lime juice on top for delicious chicken tacos or just slicing up the breasts as they are and making an awesome Caesar salad. Your meal options are basically endless as long as your meat is cooked properly.

Remember when grilling chicken, the right temperature and grilling time means juicy, delicious chicken. With all this information under your belt, it’s time to get grilling!
