I know it’s winter and normally grilling is reserved for the summer, but with this fantastic grilled chicken breast recipe you’re going to have to pull out the old grill and fire her up. Of course, you might need to clean it and fill the propane tank and then you can fire her up and get these chicken breasts grilled.

So you finally have that grill cleaned and out, now for you to take care of the chicken. This part is the easier part. We will stick with a basic marinade. Mix together ½ c of beer, ¼ c vinegar, ¼ c brown sugar, 2 Tbsp olive oil, half an onion, garlic powder to taste and some bbq sauce to make the mixture a little thinner. You want it similar to a thick stew.
Put this mix into a Ziploc bag with your chicken. If you want to cut up the chicken in cubes and add some veggies to the marinade, then you can put them on a skewer and have a kabob instead, but this marinade works well with just the chicken breast whole as well. I would normally let this marinade overnight but if you didn’t get to it the night before then at least 4 hours to give it enough flavor.
Then pull your meat out and grill until chicken is at 165 degrees at it’s thickest part. This grilled chicken breast recipe goes great with corn on the cob and potato salad.
If you like something a little easier or you want to have more control of the flavor of your chicken then I have another grilled chicken breast recipe for you. Just put some vinegar, oil and the seasonings of your choice in a bag with the chicken. The ratio should be 4:1 with more vinegar. Then let it marinade overnight and grill. I like using onion and garlic powder best for this but you can use whatever you like.
If you want a grilled chicken breast recipe that is also extremely healthy then I can help there, too. Just grill some chicken breast on low to medium heat. Normally I sprinkle a little salt, pepper and garlic powder on the chicken for added flavor. Then while that is grilling, get some lettuce washed and torn. Also cut whatever toppings you like for a salad, like cucumbers, tomatoes, sprouts, olives, avocados, onions, celery, carrots, mushroom, cheese, etc.
When the chicken is done either cut it or shred it. Then put everything in a bowl together add some salad dressing, we use ranch here at my house. Toss it together and then eat it as a salad, sandwich or a fantastic wrap.
