This four-ingredient recipe for barbecue chicken is a chill-and-grill classic.
- 8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (6-8 ounces each)
- Kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper
- Dry Italian seasoning
- Barbecue sauce of your choice (check out our sweet and smoky BBQ sauce recipe)
Preheat the grill on high. Pull the chicken from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature, about 20-30 minutes. Room temperature chicken will cook quickly and evenly.
Generously season the chicken on both sides with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning.
Place chicken onto hot grill and close the lid. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side for a total cooking time of 8-10 minutes. During the last few minutes of grilling, brush chicken with barbecue sauce. Cooking time will depend on the thickness of your chicken.
Remove cooked chicken from the grill, cover with foil and allow to rest for approximately 10-12 minutes before slicing. Serve warm with additional barbecue sauce on the side.
