Also, follow these tips to grill a juicy bird every time.
- Marinate: Marinating chicken helps flavor the the meat. It also tenderizes the meat so that bird cooks moist and juicy every time. 30 minutes for small cut pieces (e.g. for kabobs) and about an hour for whole chicken breast will make a lot of difference in the flavor.
- Pre-heat Grill: Always cook on pre-heated grill (indoor or outdoor). Pre-heated grill will immediately lock-in juices when marinated chicken is placed on the grill. This way chicken will cook moist from the inside.
- Baste with Marinade: Always reserve a 1/4 of marinade and use it to baste the grilling chicken. This is my secret to get flavor in every nook of grilled chicken. When don't have reserved marinade, baste chicken with mix of one part olive oil mixed with pinch of salt, pepper and herb such as parsley or oregano.
Follow the tips listed above and with these recipes, chicken will never dry but always moist and juicy.
