With the right dry rub, techniques, and an understanding of how to grill chicken, you can make fantastic grilled chicken every time. It’s also great when used in a Grilled Chicken Salad or Buffalo Chicken Sliders.

Grilled chicken can also be delicious on spaghetti, and sandwiches. For a well-balanced lunch, pile your dish high with fruit and vegetables, as well as a serving of nutritious grains in addition to this lean protein.
Grilled Chicken Thighs, Legs, and Quarters
Chicken thighs and legs contain more fat than a boneless, skinless chicken breast so they handle high heat well without drying out. Bone-in chicken quarters also help to shield leaner meat from the high heat while cooking.
Grilled Chicken Breast
Chicken breasts are one of the most basic and inexpensive cuts of meat. Jazz up this plain Jane poultry with any number of seasonings and glazes.
Grilled Chicken Wings
The wings are one of the smallest and yet most expensive parts of a chicken, but for good reason! They are beyond tasty. Especially when grilled.

Try adding flavor before you cook with a dry rub or marinade.
