Does The Chicken Need to Marinade

This grilled chicken recipe does need to marinate in the sauce you create. The sauce is going to soak into the chicken to add flavor but also help provide a moisture barrier to keep your chicken juicy as you grill it on the grill.

Best Grill To Use

Charcoal, pellet grill, indoor grill, propane, etc. Any grill will work for cooking your chicken. The biggest thing is if you can control the heat temperature, you are going to get a more consistent cook over the chicken.

Otherwise you might find charcoal grills will vary depending on how hot the grates and grill is.

What to Serve With Grilled Chicken

How to Know When Chicken Is Fully Cooked

You will need to use an internal thermometer to check that the chicken reaches 165 degrees internal temperature.

The other ways to know the chicken is done is making sure the chicken juices run clear and the meat is white and no longer pink when sliced into.

How do you grill chicken without drying it out?

You will find the marinade is what helps lock in the juice of the chicken. If you don’t marinade your chicken first you will find that it can tend to dry out when being grilled.
