Tasty Tuesday

Sooo I may have been a little unmotivated yesterday (due to having guests in town and being completely exhausted this last weekend) which lead to no motivation to post something motivational. I hope you found something motivational even though I was a little lacking!

So I decided to do a post today and call it Tasty Tuesday. So last night as Bill (my boyfriend) and I were thinking about what to have for dinner we realized we had 5 lbs of chicken to use up. So we decided to grill some chicken. Instead of boring old chicken, I decided to add some spice and whip up a little bbq glaze to put on it. So if you are a fan of chicken and bbq sauce, you should try this out!


Grilled BBQ Chicken

Prep time: 10 minutes       Cook time: 20 minutes        Total time: 30 minutes    

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

     Chicken:
  • 2 boneless and skinnless chicken breasts, fat trimmed and thinned to 1/4 in
  • 1 Tbsp of spices, I used an applewood rub
     Sauce/Glaze
  • 2 Tbsp BBQ sauce, I used Sweet Baby Rays
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
Instructions
  1. Turn on grill and let it heat up to about 450 degrees
  2. Trim fat off of chicken and either split in half (this is what I did) or pound it until it is about 1/4 in. thick
  3. Season both sides of the chicken with spices of choice (the more bbqy or smokey, the better)
  4. Place chicken on grill 
  5. Mix ingredients together in a small bowl to create the glaze
  6. Flip after 4-8 minutes--this all depends on the thickness of your chicken
  7. Once it has been flipped, brush with the glaze
  8. Flip after 4-8 minutes again 
  9. Brush chicken with glaze again
  10. You can take off the grill at this point but I left it on for just a little bit and glazed the sides one more time to get the sides a little crispy
  11. ENJOY!

I found that cutting the chicken in half works a lot easier than pounding the heck out of it. I also only decided to do 2 chicken breasts because I didn't know how good it was really going to be, but I cant wait to make it again. It was so good Bill asked if I would make more for him to take to lunch!

Let me know how it turns out for you if you try it!
