This is the easiest way to get the grilled chicken flavor we all love while keeping a smoke-free house and staying indoors. You can season the wings with my Dry Rub for Chicken recipe.

Grill Temperature

I use the medium setting and 450 degrees.

Cook Time/How Long to Cook

Cook the chicken for 10-15 minutes until it reaches an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees. Use a meat thermometer.

How to Tell When the Chicken has Finished Cooking

For properly cooked chicken, if you cut into it and the juices run clear, then the chicken is fully cooked. If the juices are red or have a pinkish color, your chicken may need to be cooked a bit longer. For safety you should ensure it has reached an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees.

How to Store the Chicken/How Long Will it Last in the Fridge

Leftover chicken should be stored covered and tightly sealed in the fridge for 3-4 days.

How to Reheat

I recommend you use the air fryer or indoor grill following the same temperature and watch closely until the chicken is warm. You can use the microwave but it usually dries out chicken.

How to Get Juicy Chicken Breasts

The best way to get juicy chicken breasts is to marinate the chicken in liquid for at least 2 hours to overnight. My favorite way to marinate is with 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce (or liquid aminos) and a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice.

Marinating the chicken will break down the proteins, tenderize it, and keep the meat from drying out.

Notes

  • Every brand and model of grills may cook at varying speeds. Be sure to monitor your food closely to ensure appropriate cook time.
  • The best way to get juicy chicken breasts is to marinate the chicken in liquid for at least 2 hours to overnight. My favorite way to marinate is with 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce (or liquid aminos) and a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice. Marinating the chicken will break down the proteins, tenderize it, and keep the meat from drying out.
  • The width of your chicken breasts will definitely impact the cooking time. Thick chicken breasts will take longer to cook.
  • For properly cooked chicken, if you cut into it and the juices run clear, then the chicken is fully cooked. If the juices are red or have a pinkish color, your chicken may need to be cooked a bit longer. For safety you should ensure it has reached an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees.
