Perfect Grilled Chicken Recipe


  1. Using a sharp filet knife or other sharp knife, cut each chicken piece into 2 cutlets. To do this, lay a chicken breast flat on a cutting board. Place your hand on top of the chicken and then take your knife and slice it into 2 pieces – your hand is a guide to keep the knife gliding through the chicken. Be very careful and go slowly!
  2. Pound each piece of chicken (cover with plastic wrap) with a meat mallet until they are at an even thickness. You want the chicken pieces as thin as you can go without tearing the meat.
  3. Once you have your chicken pieces, coat them with the oil and then coat them in your favorite herb or spice rub.
  4. Preheat your grill to 400ยบ or heat a grill pan over high heat.
  5. Add the chicken pieces to the grill at an angle. Cook for 2 minutes and then shift each piece on the opposite angle for another 2 minutes. This is what will give you perfect hatch marks on the grilled chicken! Flip the chicken and repeat on the other side. 4 minutes is perfect for thin cutlets. If your chicken is a little thicker, add a few more minutes to the cooking time.
  6. Allow the chicken to rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
