Grilled boneless chicken breast

Grilling boneless chicken breasts is a simple and delicious way to enjoy this lean protein. Here’s a basic recipe for grilled boneless chicken breasts:


  • – 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • – Salt and pepper, to taste
  • – Olive oil or cooking spray
  • – Optional marinade or seasoning of your choice (such as lemon herb, barbecue, or garlic herb)


1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat (around 375-400°F or 190-200°C).

2. If using a marinade, place the chicken breasts in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them, ensuring they are evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours, to allow the flavors to penetrate the meat.

3. Remove the chicken breasts from the marinade and discard any excess marinade. Pat the chicken breasts dry with paper towels.

4. Season the chicken breasts generously with salt and pepper on both sides.

5. Lightly oil the grill grates with olive oil or cooking spray to prevent sticking.

6. Place the chicken breasts on the preheated grill and cook for 6-7 minutes per side, or until they reach an internal temperature of 165°F (75°C) and are no longer pink in the center. Use a meat thermometer to check for doneness.

7. Avoid flipping the chicken breasts too frequently to allow them to develop grill marks and a nice sear.

8. Once the chicken breasts are cooked through, remove them from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.

9. Serve the grilled boneless chicken breasts hot, garnished with fresh herbs or a squeeze of lemon juice if desired.

10. Enjoy your delicious grilled chicken breasts with your favorite side dishes, such as grilled vegetables, salad, or rice.
