Ingredients

Prep Time

15 min

Total Time

1.5 hrs

Yield

Our Chicken Breasts are usually about 1.5-2# and yield 4-8 servings depending on recipes.
  • 1 package LGCM Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • Water
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Directions

  • 1

    Brine – cover chicken breasts with cold water and add salt to mixture. Use about 1/4 cup salt for every 4 cups of water. Put in refrigerator for one hour. This helps lock in moisture.

  • 2

    Pound Flat – remove from brine, place in a plastic bag, and pound chicken breasts to an even thickness of about 1/2-3/4″ each. This will help them cook more evenly and faster.

  • 3

    Season – lightly season both sides of each breast with salt and pepper, or you can use a rub or marinade if you’d prefer.

  • 4

    Grill – grill these chicken breasts for 5-6 minutes per side over medium heat, flipping only once. Remove once the chicken has reached 165F.

  • 5

    Slice, dice, shred (whichever works best for your meal) and enjoy!
