KITCHEN BASICS: Grilled Chicken


Moving along in our Kitchen Basics series, we just had to put up a simply basic grilled chicken recipe. 


I make this grilled chicken for dinner at least 3-4 times a week, and use it on top of salads, in pastas, or just by itself with a side of brown rice. It has just a few, versatile seasonings that taste great on their own, or accompanied by a side-sauce of some sort!



KITCHEN BASICS: Grilled Chicken

measurements are for 1 large chicken breast (since mel is single and that's how she rolls)

1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried basil 

Combined all ingredients in a tupperware, tossing to coat the breast, then place into the fridge for 1/2 an hour. Preheat your grill pan on medium-high heat and cook your chicken for 3-5 minutes (depending on thickness) or until fully cooked through, and no longer pink in the center.

Transfer to a plate and allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
