We can all agree that summer is one of the best seasons! While this summer may look a little different due to COVID, we still get to enjoy many of our favorite activities – going to the beach, exercising outdoors, enjoying time off school (or e-learning in this case) and relaxing in our backyards. Grilling is another summer pastime, as people from coast to coast fire up their grills to cook savory ribs and juicy chicken.
Chicken on the Grill – It’s Quick, Easy and Nutritious!
One of our favorite recipes for the summer is a simple grilled chicken breast. You can eat this white meat with your favorite vegetable side dish, or slice it up to place on a fresh bed of greens or whole-wheat wrap.
Here are the steps to making this perfectly delicious chicken dinner.
- Brine the chicken using 4 cups of water and ¼ cup of kosher salt for 30 minutes. Brining meat before grilling keeps the moisture in. We recommend it!
- Season the chicken breasts with the seasongins of your choice. For 2 pounds of chicken, use 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and 1½ teaspoons of paprika.
- Brush olive oil onto the grill grates and toss the chicken onto the grill. Cook one side until browned, turn over and cook the other. Remove chicken once the internal temperature is 155 degrees. Let the meat rest before serving – this helps to lock in the juices.
This simple, easy dish is an excellent way to start the summer off right. You’ll love the smoky grilled taste and the tender, juicy insides. Plus, you don’t have to feel guilty about eating it!
