Description

Cooking the simplest dishes are the hardest to get them right sometimes, grilled chicken is one of them. People think that marinating alone will save grilled chicken from drying out; in fact, it’s often the marinade causes the problem! It is not necessary that every time we use boneless chicken breasts, as I often do, we can make grilled chicken using a good leg piece. One can enjoy grilled chicken over a caesar salad to get a perfect healthy main course, children also love them.
