Grilled BBQ Chicken Breasts


Hi, it’s Thomas again! Lex and I do work together so hopefully you’re not tired of me yet, haha. Confession, I love dipping chicken in BBQ sauce because it is just so dang good. We are still keeping it practical and easy over here while we count down the days till the boys go back to school. Not that we are wishing summer away but you know what I mean, right? Enough parent confession, back to the recipe. We marinated chicken breasts in our new favorite BBQ sauce from Costco and grilled them to make an absolute favorite for the entire family! A total of three ingredients were used to make this BBQ chicken, and well, we were all satisfied!

What you need to make grilled BBQ chicken breasts + substitutions:

  • Chicken breasts- We opted for chicken breasts this time but the reality is chicken thighs and drumsticks would work just fine! Only difference would be in the cook times.
  • Kinders organic mild BBQ sauce- We have been using this sauce all summer and loving it. It is so good on everything! We got a big 2 pack package from Costco and it’s fantastic on these grilled BBQ chicken breasts.
  • Sea salt- We use sea salt for every single thing we make. Sweet and savory because it brings out the flavor. Our favorite brand of sea salt is hands down Redmond! We even recently got a discount code daddioskitchen for 15% off!
  • Corn, sweet potatoes, and salad- We paired our chicken with grilled corn, air fried sweet potatoes, and a salad and it was a delicious meal. You could obviously pair yours with whatever you prefer!

Grilled BBQ Chicken Breasts

Practical, easy grilled BBQ chicken breasts for the whole family or guests. BBQ sauce is just so good on everything and typically a pleaser for the whole family. Everyone has their own methods to obtaining great tasting BBQ chicken on the grill but I have found this method to be great tasting without overthinking. The key to BBQ chicken is not overcooking while still being able to maintain a little char on the outside. Some BBQ sauces contain more sugar which can cause the grill to flame so keep that in mind when grilling.
