If you want to learn how to grill the best BBQ chicken, then read this entire article to become a BBQ chicken master.

Grilling chicken on a gas grill or charcoal does not have to be intimidating, just as long as you follow these 10 proven steps to grilling the best BBQ chicken.

10 Steps to Grilling BBQ Chicken Breasts:

 

  1. Trim any of the excess fat and skin from chicken breast.
  2. Rinse the boneless skinless chicken under cold water. Lightly remove any excess moisture with a paper towel, but do not dry completely.
  3. Coat the chicken breasts with olive oil and sprinkle salt on both sides.
  4. Sprinkle powdered BBQ chicken seasoning on both sides of the breast. You can use any preferred seasoning, but BBQ seasoning adds a distinct flavor that enhances grilled chicken.
  5. Preheat your gas grill to a high heat. It is better to use propane, but charcoal will do the trick as well.
  6. Spray the cooking grill with a non-flammable no-stick grilling spray.
  7. Place the chicken breasts on the hot grill, all facing the same direction.
  8. Apply BBQ Sauce to the top side of each breast and close, or cover the grill.
  9. After seven minutes, turn the chicken breasts over, applying BBQ sauce to the cooked side, then re-close, or cover the grill.
  10. After an additional seven minutes, flip the chicken breasts over and once again, apply another coat of BBQ sauce. Let them lay for 10-15 seconds, flip and then apply an additional coat of BBQ sauce and then turn off the burners and close the gas.

 

You’ll then remove the chicken from the grill and place them on a plate or platter where you should let them stand at least 5 minutes before serving.

NOTEThese tips should be followed when grilling medium-sized breasts. If you purchase breasts that seem large, thick or heavy, you should increase the grill time by 1-2 minutes per side. If you have a meat thermometer, chicken should be cooked to 165 degrees Fahrenheit before consumption. The purpose of coating the chicken breasts with olive oil and salt is to help lock in juices and flavor once they are exposed to the high heat.

Consuming raw or undercooked chicken is not recommended and could cause serious illness, or worse.
