I always find chicken a difficult one to cook on the grill. It does come out dry or if you marinade it first then it burns and the chicken remains uncooked on the inside. I pre-cook my chicken in the microwave and then finish it off on the grill. This way seems like a good alternative.

That chicken looks actually perfect! I am definitely going to try out these tips because my grilled chicken can turn out really dry sometimes and I don't know why!

I am so glad for this video because when my husband cooks chicken it is either not cooked enough or cooked to the point it is so dry that I do not even want it. I always thought it would take more than 20 minutes. I use to par boil it but gets done to much too. Everyone should watch this video for a good piece of grilled chicken and the marinaded that you have recipe link to looks delicious. I must try it. Anyone else have a good marinade sauce?
