How to Grill Chicken Breast

In this post I want to show you how to grill chicken breast. This can be tricky as chicken breast can be dry if not cooked properly. We will marinate the meat in order to prevent this.

Although I only marinated these for 30 minutes you can go ahead and do it overnight. The longer they marinate the better so try and allot time for this.

We are also going to cut the thick chicken breast into thinner slices. This will cook them faster, making sure they are completely cooked through without drying them out. On this note, it is very important that you cook the chicken all the way through. Please do not eat raw chicken as it might make you very sick.

This recipe is very tasty and really easy. You will have to allow at least 30 minutes for the marinating. I used 4 chicken breasts because I wanted to use the left overs for lunch the next day. So, if you only want dinner you will only need 2 breasts.

Here is what you are going to need for this recipe:

4 chicken skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 cup white wine
3/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon ground garlic
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper

Whisk the wine, oil, garlic, coriander, cumin, salt and pepper in a large bowl.

Rinse and pat dry the chicken breasts. Using a very sharp knife cut the breast into 8 to 10 thin fillets. Place the chicken in the bowl and mix well, making sure it is completely covered in the marinade. Marinade for at least 30 minutes.

Heat your grill on high for 20 minutes. Oil the grills with a wad of paper towel drenched in olive oil.

Cook for 5 minutes, until the chicken has grill marks and flip.

Cook for another 5 minutes and remove from grill. Please make sure it is completely cooked through. If it is not, return to the grill for a few more minutes. Serve and enjoy!

Make chicken sandwiches with the left over chicken for lunch tomorrow! Toast some wheat bread and smear with some mayonnaise and mustard. Place some lettuce leaves on one side. Top with a tomato slice and the chicken. Place some sliced red onion on top of the chicken and some pickle spears. Cover with the other slice of bread. Delicious!
