Easy Grilled Chicken Strips

Grilled Chicken Strips from 101 Cooking For Two
A quick and easy grilling. A lot of people have a problem with grilling a skinless boneless chicken breast. They make hockey pucks. Their issue is by the time they get the center done to the point it won’t make them sick, the outside and edges are overcooked.

My suggestion to you is to cut it up and make it more uniform and predictable. Then a quick marinade, an easy quick grilling and you’re there.

I took our old family favorite for grill chicken  for the marinade. I used skinless boneless chicken but chicken tenders would work well.

Rating:

A solid 4. A great “everyday” type recipe.

Notes: Use any marinade or seasoning that you want. The  technique will be fine. I did 3 chicken breast only because that is what I had. scale this to what you want.

Preheat grill to medium high. ( grill temp of 350 to 375).

Over medium high heat in a medium to large sauce pan add 6 T butter (3/4 stick), 6 T lemon juice, 2 T minced garlic (about 6-8 cloves), 2 T Seasoning salt (Lowey’s) and 1/2 t black pepper. Simmer for 2-3 minutes then remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes while you work on the chicken.

Trim, dry and cut about 2 pounds (about 3 normal size breasts) of skinless boneless chicken breast into strips. You could use chicken tenders instead.

Now that the butter has cooled some, add the chicken and mix well. Do not add the chicken when the butter is very hot, you are cooking on the grill, not in the pan.

Now one of the most important parts. CLEAN AND OIL the grill. Otherwise you will be fighting the sticking.

Place the strips on the grill and flip every 2-3 minutes until internal temp of 165. This is about 8-10 minutes total.

    Dan you have just inspired me. When you said “you are cooking on the grill not in the butter”, it made me think of butter poaching chicken to maybe 140f internal and then nailing it over a hot grill to finish. Hmmmmm wheels a turnin’.

    Add a little bacon and you have something. I do have chicken for tomorrow but my wife informs me that we are going lighter. Shucks…
