Tips for making the best bbq chicken breast
I want to keep the meat nice and lean and cut down on extra unnecessary calories, so I only season with salt, pepper and lemon zest.
I cut the breast into strips and put them in the skewers to keep them uniform and even.
Once seasoned, I cook them in the barbecue turning them regularly to make sure they don't burn.
Once they are ready I put them aside and let them rest covered for few minutes so the moist is kept inside the meat.
If you don't have a charcoal barbecue you can use the grill or even the oven. Prepare the chicken the same way and cook in the oven at 390F - 200 C for 20 minutes on one side and turning it for 10 minutes on the other side.
