With Everything But Bagel Seasoning
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 tablespoons Everything But Bagel Seasoning
2 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. If you don't have a grill, you can use a grill pan or a regular pan instead.
Rub the chicken breasts with olive oil to lightly coat them. This will help the Everything But Bagel Seasoning to adhere to the chicken.
Sprinkle the Everything But Bagel Seasoning generously over the chicken breasts, making sure to coat them evenly. You can use more or less seasoning depending on your taste preference.
Place the chicken breasts on the grill and cook for 6-7 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. This will ensure that the chicken is fully cooked and safe to eat.
Once the chicken is done, remove it from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes. This will help to seal in the juices and keep the chicken moist and tender.
Serve the Everything But Bagel grilled chicken hot and enjoy! You can serve it with your favorite sides, such as roasted vegetables, a salad or garlic mashed potatoes.
This recipe pairs very nicely with a Sauvignon Blanc - This wine is a popular choice to pair with grilled chicken because of its crisp, refreshing acidity and citrus notes, which complement the seasoning and flavors of the chicken.
Roasted Vegetables - Roasted vegetables are a tasty and nutritious side dish that can be customized with your favorite vegetables. Try roasting some zucchini, bell peppers, and red onions, seasoned with olive oil, salt, and pepper, for a colorful and flavorful addition to your meal.
House Salad - A fresh and crisp house salad is always a great option to balance out the flavors of a grilled chicken dish. Toss together some mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and red onion, and dress with a simple vinaigrette made with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, dijon mustard, and honey.
Garlic Mashed Potatoes - If you're looking for a heartier side dish, garlic mashed potatoes are always a crowd-pleaser. Boil some potatoes until tender, then mash with butter, milk, and minced garlic, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Use a meat thermometer - Grilling chicken to the right temperature is important for both safety and flavor. To ensure that the chicken is fully cooked, use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. The chicken should reach a temperature of 165°F (74°C) before it is safe to eat.
Let the chicken rest - After removing the chicken from the grill, let it rest for a few minutes before cutting into it. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in a moister and more flavorful chicken.
Use a grill brush - Make sure to clean your grill grates with a grill brush before cooking the chicken. This will help prevent sticking and make it easier to flip the chicken without tearing it.
Use a light touch - When applying the seasoning to the chicken, use a light touch to prevent the seasoning from clumping together. You want the seasoning to coat the chicken evenly and stick to the surface.
This recipe is simple, easy to follow, and uses just a few ingredients to create a flavorful and delicious dish that is perfect for a quick weeknight dinner or a weekend barbecue. Enjoy!
