How to make grilled chicken at home..

If you have a grill, could be gas, pellet or charcoal, then you can make better than restaurant grilled chicken.


Either marinate or brine your chicken first. Then coat with olive oil (could use other oils such as avocado). Season it. Before placing it on the grill, brush olive oil on the grill grates.

Grilled chicken temperature

Grill your chicken until it reaches an internal temperature of 155° or higher. After removing your chicken from the grill, let it rest for 10-15 minutes. The chicken will continue to cook while resting, bringing it to a safe temperature to consume.
