    Grilled Chicken Recipes

     

    Chicken is a favorite meat to cook for dinner and there are several tips on preparing this healthy entree. If the chicken is frozen, thaw overnight in your refrigerator. Before cooking, the chicken can be marinated for a better flavor, at least two hours or overnight in the refrigerator. Trim off excess fat with a knife or kitchen scissors. Chicken should be cooked until juices run clear or is 170 degrees in the center. Below are some recipes using grilled chicken that your family will be sure to find enjoyable and delicious.
