  • 2 skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoons Italian seasoning


  • Trim chicken breasts.
  • Optional: Mix brine of 3 cups water, 3 tablespoons table salt, 3 tablespoons brown sugar and 1/2 to 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional). Add chicken and submerge and refrigerate for about 1 hour.
  • Clean and oil grill grates and preheat to a surface temperature of about 450 which is about medium-high on most grills. I recommend a surface thermometer to be able to control your grill well.
  • If making your own seasoning then use equal parts dried basil, oregano, marjoram, rosemary, and thyme. I used 1 tablespoon each and saved the extra in a small airtight container suitable for storage.
  • Mix oil and 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning.
  • Pepper lightly on both sides and salt if not brined. Then brush both sides with the oil mixture. Place on grill over direct heat with grill lid closed.
  • Flip about every 5 minutes until internal temp is 165. 25-30 minutes total on the grill.
