- Instant-read thermometer
Grill the chicken for about 10 minutes total, cooking for 2-3 minutes at a time per side. Once the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F, the chicken is done.
Marinate the chicken for 1-4 hours before grilling it. This helps the chicken absorb enough moisture before grilling. This keeps it from drying out during the cooking process.
High heat is used while preheating the grill 15 minutes before the chicken is added. Right before the chicken is placed on the grill, you turn off all of the burners except for the main burned. Turn that burner to medium-high.
Move the oven rack to the middle position and preheat to 350°F. While the oven preheats, place the chicken in a baking dish and spritz it with water. Or, brush the chicken with a light coating of Italian dressing. Depending on the thickness of the chicken, reheat for 5-15 minutes. The internal temperature of the chicken should be about 165°F.
