Keeping your chicken moist!


Most of the time I'm cooking chicken breast skinless. I like the fact that it is leaner and, if cooked right, gives me a pretty tasty meal.

The problem with a healthy chicken breast is the lack of fat which keeps it moist while cooking.

The key here is basting. Before cooking you must generously coat the meat with melted butter or oil, this will keep them from drying out.

Simple Instructions:
Preheat the grill to high
Brush your grill grate with oil.
Apply the breasts to the heated grill. During the cooking process you will need to baste with oil or melted butter. Cook on this side for 4 minutes. (if you want to rotate the meat 45 degrees at 2 minutes you can get the crosshatch grill lines) After 4 minutes on the first side flip and repeat on the second side.
