Grilled chicken is a popular dish made by cooking chicken on a grill over an open flame or heat source. To prepare grilled chicken, chicken breasts, thighs, or drumsticks are typically marinated in a mixture of oil, vinegar, herbs, and spices for a few hours to overnight to enhance the flavor and tenderness of the meat.
When it's time to cook the chicken, it is typically placed on a preheated grill and cooked for 10-12 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the chicken. The chicken is usually basted with the remaining marinade during cooking to keep it moist and flavorful. The chicken is considered fully cooked when it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) on a meat thermometer.
Grilled chicken can be served as a main dish, or sliced and added to salads, sandwiches, or wraps. It is a popular choice for outdoor barbecues and summer cookouts, as it is easy to prepare, versatile, and delicious.
Grilled chicken is a healthy option as it is low in fat and calories and is a good source of lean protein. It is a popular dish enjoyed all over the world and is often served in different styles and flavors, such as BBQ, teriyaki, or lemon herb.
