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.

  • lbs chicken breasts sliced in half to make thinner
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ¾ cup Kinders organic mild BBQ sauce


  • Pat dry chicken breasts with paper towel to remove any moisture.
  • Slice chicken breasts down the middle. Not necessary but they cook much faster on the grill.
  • Add the chicken breasts to a mixing bowl. Pour in the sea salt and BBQ sauce. Mix well making sure all the chicken is coated.
  • Cover the bowl and place chicken in fridge for at least 1 hour but up to 6-8 hours to marinate.
  • When you're ready to grill, remove the chicken from fridge and bring to room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • Heat grill on medium high heat at 400-450°. Place chicken on grill and cook for 7 minutes on each side. Paste more bbq sauce on using a brush to your liking after flipping. Internal temperature should be 165°F degrees. Enjoy!
