Grilled chicken that is basted in butter. How can you go wrong? This chicken requires very little thinking ahead and is good enough to frequently include in the summer barbeque rotation. I always make extras so that I can use the leftover chicken in something else. It can be tossed into a pasta dish or a salad. And I use it for quesadillas quite a bit.
Another great thing about this chicken is that I’m sure you have all the ingredients that you need. Rub the chicken with a very light amount of olive oil. It helps the seasonings to stick. Generously season with freshly ground black pepper, lemon pepper and Kosher salt. I cut the breast and made them thinner. I like to be able to grill them a little faster. I also like that it gives me a better seasoning/butter to chicken ration.
Put the chicken on the grill and baste with melted butter. Grill over high medium/high heat for 8-10 minutes per side. After flipping the chicken, baste with butter again. Grill until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Let rest about five minutes before serving.

We are all sick of bringing sandwiches, so we have been talking about getting a BBQ’er for here at work so we can BBQ for lunch during the summer. Tis the season.
This would be the perfect recipe to make. Emily can BBQ and I can bring the potato salad, made with yogurt of course.
We just need Dad and Levi to get the BBQ’er for us. I can be in charge of that, I love to delegate
