Simple Grilled Chicken

Simple Grilled Chicken

I tend to eat grilled chicken breast whenever I want to feel like I’m having a lean/healthy meal. It’s my safety-net food item. When I’ve gotten out of line, eating way too many chocolate chips and nut butters, I turn to some fresh veggies and a nice piece of juicy chicken breast.

That’s what’s happening today. I have come to realize I’ve been overdoing the chocolate chips, nuts, and healthy fats combo. Took me one month to realize this (my pants fit super tight now, lol) and now it’s time for some healthy eating at the Lewis’ home! Today I’ve prepared a Simple Grilled Chicken recipe that I enjoy a lot. It’s easy to make and you can prepare it in bulk to enjoy it throughout the week.

  1. I made this recipe last week when my boyfriend and I were craving a simple chicken dish. I had never broiled chicken before, so I was a bit nervous that I would burn them. However, it turned out great (followed the directions exactly)! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Meagan! That is great to hear! Broiling is a great alliterative for those of us who don’t have space for a grill ;). I’ll be posting more broiling recipes soon!

  2. Simply Irresistible!!! Thank you. This is how I will be make much of my chicken breast in the future. I’m new to eating Paleo and this will definitely help.

  3. Were your chicken breasts frozen?? I tried this and followed the recipe exactly with defrosted chicken and the foil caught on fire right after I flipped them?

    1. Hi Nicole! My chicken was defrosted for sure. I’m sorry that happened to you, it’s never happened to me before and I make this “Simple Chicken” recipe every week. Maybe your baking sheet was too close to the flame? :/

  4. Huge problem I’m having now: I live in Middle of nowhere…there are no organic or free range anything. My family’s christmas turkey and chicken will be grain fed, skin on, roasted, …from a packed processing plant. I’m very…at odds with this…but if I don’t start eting the chicken in this location, I’m reduced to eggs and fish all. the . time. I’m lost.

    1. Hi Jill! That’s unfortunate. It’s ok for you to have non-organic food once in a while, specially if your body is craving chicken and all they have around is non-organic. Just be sure that the majority of your protein intake comes from an all natural, unprocessed meats. 🙂 Hang in there and get creative with how you use your fish and eggs! You’ll be amazed at all the different dishes you could make.

  5. I was looking for an easy chicken recipe for tonight. This was excellent! I think chicken breasts are normally difficult to grill because I always seem to overcook them. These turned out perfectly! Even my husband was impressed! Thanks for the recipe!
