The Perfect 5 Minute Grilled Chicken has just 3 Ingredients. I absolutely love this recipe, it’s perfect for large parties, summer picnics and camps.
This Grilled Chicken recipe has been our family favorite for many years. We make this chicken for every birthday party or other event I am hosting. Whenever others try this chicken, they always ask for this recipe.
I would really recommend doubling on the ingredients or you may have no leftovers. We love using chicken the next day, simply reheating it or using it in salads.
Best Grilled Chicken Marinate
My all-time favorite marinade for chicken is either ranch or Caesar salad dressing. The dressing makes the chicken extra moist and the flavors are balanced well.
How to Keep the Grilled Chicken Moist
When making grilled chicken, always use the boneless, skinless chicken thighs. You will always get the juiciest chicken.
If you do grill the chicken ahead of time, keep it in a covered container. The steam of hot chicken will keep the chicken flavorful and moist.
How to Make Grilled Chicken Kabobs
If you’re using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least an hour to prevent them from burning. Cut chicken into two-inch cubes and place them on the skewers. Preheat grill on high to about 380℉, then cook chicken on both sides until it turns golden brown.
How Long to Grill the Chicken
It will take anywhere between 10-15 minutes at 380°F, depending on the cut of the chicken (thickness). Chicken will be ready when the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
