BBQ chicken breast in white plate with vegetable salad and corn in cob

Ah, the BBQ. Here in Canada, our season almost never ends, we simply shuffle the BBQ closer to the deck door and clear the snow away. Perhaps when it’s -40 with the windchill and the snow is so piled up we can’t open the deck door, we actually give up.

This past week I threw some chicken breast onto the BBQ, trying out a slightly different technique in the hopes that it wouldn’t dry out, as chicken breast is so wont to do. It worked like a charm and was delicious to boot.

This easy garlic BBQ chicken is most definitely an Attainable Eats recipe, so simple and easy.

Ingredients Needed:
2-4 chicken breasts
4-8 cloves of garlic
garlic and herb Mrs Dash seasoning

tin foil and tin pie plates

Take your chicken breasts, liberally sprinkle with the Mrs Dash then top with sliced garlic , each clove sliced into 2-3 pieces.

Add a couple of tablespoons of water to the pie plate then seal with tin foil. Cook at medium temperature – if you have a thermometer on your barbeque then it’s around 375- for 35-45 minutes, depending on the size of the chicken breast.

Once they have reached the proper temperature – 165 for chicken breast- remove them from the tinfoil.

They look really pallid and unappealing, I know, but we will fix that in a second.

Once the skin is crisped up beautifully, they are ready to eat – and look so much better!

That’s it! Nothing spectacular, hard or complicated. Just simple garlic chicken on the bbq without being dried out.

Happy Monday everyone!
