Here's an easy recipe for grilled, marinated chicken breasts. Cooked over direct heat on the barbecue grill, it's quick to fix and great tasting. The breasts are marinated in an easy-to-make homemade barbecue sauce that uses ingredients found in just about every kitchen.
Marinate two pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts overnight in one cup of homemade Alabama white BBQ sauce mixed with two teaspoons of fresh, chopped rosemary. A gallon food storage bag is perfect for marinating chicken. Place it in a bowl in the fridge...just in case it springs a leak.
Preheat your gas or charcoal grill. This recipe calls for direct grilling over medium-high heat.
Grill the marinated chicken breasts 4 to 6 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165ºF. (Grilling time will vary depending on the size of the breasts and the temperature of the grill.) Remove them from the grill and give them a five minute rest, covered on the counter, before serving.
Cut the breasts into bite size pieces and serve atop mixed greens, using white barbecue sauce as dressing. A few slices of crusty French bread and a glass of white wine, and you've got a nice meal!
