Quick Garlic Grilled Skinless Boneless Chicken Breasts With Some Bite

by DrDan at 101 Cooking For Two May-2-2011

Sometime you don't want to brine or fuss. You just want to cook. I don't seem to have any time anymore. So it is quick weeknight type recipes for me for a while. A less than 30 minute chicken breast that was moist without brining. I call it garlic with bite. Great in a chicken sandwich with mayo.


  • 2 Skinless boneless chicken breasts.
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1/2 t Kosher salt
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 t pepper


1) Preheat grill on high. Clean and oil grates. Trim breasts well. Mix all other ingredients in the oil and then brush on both sides of breasts.
2) Place over high heat with smooth side down. Initially about 8-10 minutes then flip about every 5-6 minutes until internal temp of 165 minimum.
