Need your secrets to juicy and tender boneless skinless chicken breast

I can't seem to get it it right in the pan, oven or bbq grill. Haven't tried the smoker
but I doubt I can do any better with it.

The more recipes, the better. But I'm trying to stay away from breaded or deep fried.

I like to pound them with a tenderizing hammer or the back side of a butcher knife a bit before I cook them, flatten them. Coat a little olive oil, salt and pepper and toss them on the grill. But not for long! A couple or three minutes a side on a hot grill is good if you have flattened them. People have this phobia about fowl, yes it needs to be cooked but it doesn't have to be overcooked.

You have to make sure you don't over cook. Get a meat thermometer and only cook till internal temp of 165.

I no longer pound out chicken breast. I slice them into two equal size pieces before breading them. I also grill them whole to medium rare slice them and put them in a hot pan with onions for great fajitas.

We do ours on the Egg.. Raised grid & indirect heat.. (most folks do direct, I like not having the flames right under the chicken..)

Pull at 155 & let rest in foil for 10 mins.. Pow.. Juicy & tender..

my advice is to use a probe thermometer - most people overcook meat trying to get to the safe zone for whatever meat you are cooking. I used to use the probe in the smoker only, now i use it on the grill and in the oven too. It's the simplest thing I did that made the things i cooked much better... that and resting the meat. remember the temp will rise when you tent/rest so don't be afraid to pull it a few degree's early.

always test your probe in boiling water too to make sure it's calibrated and reading correctly.

if you buy them frozen 99% chance they are already brined. start from room temp, keep a close eye on them and when you see clear liquid start to come out take them off the fire and let rest. Most people over cook them because they're afraid they are not cooked enough which dries them out badly.

Same here, first time I made chicken breast on the egg I was shocked at how juicy it was. Only time I've ever had chicken that juicy was at fancy resturants.

Brine. If your like me and never plan dinners you can put the breast pre-seasoned in a metal pan (stainless) on the grill. Heat both side of the breast until it's white and half done on each side. I then add beer or water to cover the bottom of the pan but not the chicken breast. You are now steaming the breast. When it's completely done set the breast on the grill long enough to get the grill marks on the meat and remove the moisture on the outside. Don't leave it too long on the grill or it will dry out. It's very most and easier than it sounds.
