  • 1 tsp salt


  • In a medium size mixing bowl combine the ingredients for the marinade. Whisk together.

  • Place the chicken over direct heat on the grill and cook for 3 minutes then flip the chicken. Cook an additional 3 minutes.
  • Move the chicken to more indirect heat on the grill, cover and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 160°F in the thickest part.
  • Allow the chicken to rest (the internal temperature will continue to rise to 165°F). After resting the chicken can be sliced and served.
