Mediterranean Easy Grilled Chicken Recipe

Here’s how to make grilled chicken breast! These tricks make it come out juicy and perfectly seasoned in minutes.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Rest Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 4 



2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pound, organic if possible), butterflied or cutlets

1/2 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

1 teaspoon kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper




Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. If not already butterflied, place your hand over the top of each chicken breast. Use a sharp knife to carefully slice the breast horizontally, leaving the edge intact so it can open up like a book (or butterfly!). Unfold the breast like a book, then cut along the fold to separate the two halves.

Add the chicken to a container and add the olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, kosher salt, and a few grinds of black pepper. Mix with your hands until evenly coated.

Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes (or up to 24 hours).

Preheat a grill to high heat (450 to 550°F).

Grill the chicken breasts until grill marks appear and it releases from the grates, 2 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until no longer pink in the center and the internal temperature is 165°F, 2 to 4 minutes. Remove to a platter and cover with foil. Allow to rest for 5 minutes for maximum juiciness.
