Grilled Chicken Breasts — A World of Exotic Flavors
Grilled chicken breasts are like summer vacation: There’s just nothing not to like about them. (Go on, name one person who doesn’t like grilled chicken breasts! You see, you can’t.) They taste great, look great on the plate, and are downright healthy — leaving off the skin is a great way to cut calories and fat.
They’re also quite easy to make. No worry, as with steak, about over or under-cooking, as long as you stay within a reasonable range on the grill (you sure don’t want them to dry out). In other words, you’ve got a little wiggle room.
And there are so many creative — think international — ways to make them. We’ve got recipes here for everything from taco-spiced grilled chicken breasts and ones with a Tex-Thai marinade (didn’t know about that one, huh?) to grilled Asian breasts and classic lemon chicken. The boneless, skinless white chicken meat acts as a kind of sponge to soak up any flavor combo you care to whip up.
Of course grilled chicken breasts taste great plain, with just a little salt and pepper. But — come on — that’s no fun. Get a little fancy in the backyard this summer.
