Prepare grill by cleaning grill grates and turning the temperature up to medium heat.

Add chicken to the grill (Photo 2) and grill for 6-8 minutes on one side before flipping and grilling for another 6-8 minutes. (Photo 3)

TIP: This is my favorite budget-friendly meat thermometer!

Using a meat thermometer, ensure that the thickest part of the chicken has reached at least 165 F. If it hasn’t, continue grilling until the meat reaches a safe temperature. (Photo 4)
