Perfectly barbecued chicken breasts
Smartpoints value per serving
A good salt brine keeps the meat juicy and moist, and the result is a simple, delicious dinner with lots of sophistication. For convenience, we gave you the option of using chicken with or without the bone in this recipe. While both are tasty, chicken cooked on the bone can be even more flavorful and juicy than boneless chicken breasts. Don't be nervous cooking with bone-in meat! Once you try it, you'll soon see what we mean. But the real secret to grilling chicken, bone-in or not, is keeping it to the side of the heat—that is, barbecuing it so that the natural sugars and proteins slowly break down to create the best flavor.
