Grilled Chicken Low Carb Recipes


There are many tasty ways to grill a chicken. Here are three flavors combinations for grilled chicken which are perfect on their own and even better as a base for other recipes.

Start with six boneless skinless chicken breasts. The flavors you want to experiment with are:

* Sprinkle two breasts with a Cajun spice blend. This tends to include a few peppers, plus onion, paprika, garlic, and thyme. Rub into the meat.

* Sprinkle two breasts with a Jerk spice blend. This tends to include thyme, cinnamon, onion, and pepper. Rub into the meat.

* Sprinkle two breasts with a blend of chili powder, paprika and cumin. Rub into the meat.

This will give you some of the most common flavors to explore, to see which you like the best.

Once your three sets of breasts are flavored, spray all of the chicken breasts with canola oil to hold in the spice.

Fire up your grill to the maximum level and heat it up. Oil the grill surface with a grill-friendly oil so the grates don't stick to the meat.

Put the breasts on the front of the grill. Now turn the front two burners off and leave on only the back burners, on low heat. This does a slow cook to the breasts.

Spice the top side of the breasts, oil them, and let them cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. They will be really juicy and flavorful. Figure out which spice combination appeals to you most, and use the chicken in a variety of recipes!

Note that, if you want to cook more quickly, you can increase the heat level. Just be sure to hydrate the meat more often to keep it from drying out. Also, always check the safe cooking temperature for any meat you work with to ensure you cook it thoroughly. For chicken that means you want the meat to get to 165F to be safe.

You can eat the chicken as is, with a side of veggies, or you can use the chicken as an ingredient for a burrito, casserole, salad topping, or other style of dish.
