The Healthy Grilling Guide
- To make sure your chicken is thoroughly cooked, first put pieces of chicken in a pot of boiling water with salt and pepper for 5-10 minutes.
- Remove chicken from the water then cover in seasoning (try salt, pepper, adobo) and cook on the grill for about 20 minutes, turning the chicken every 3 minutes.
- Coat chicken in barbecue sauce when it is almost ready to be removed from the grill. Opt for sauces without high fructose corn syrup and look for brands with tomato puree as one of the first ingredients.
- The safest way to tell when chicken is done is by a thermometer reading. The goal temperature is 165 degrees F.
