How to Prepare Moist and Juicy Grilled Chicken Breast

Today we offer you a simple and easy grilled chicken breast recipe for grilled chicken. Just follow the recipe for the best ever piece of moist and juicy grilled chicken you'll ever taste.

The secret to creating the best chicken breast ever is not to just thaw out some frozen chicken breast that has been sitting in your freezer for months and just throw it on the grill. You'll need to head over to your local grocery store and purchase some fresh chicken breast that you will have to marinate before grilling.  

My advice to you is to marinate the chicken in your refrigerator for at least 6 to 8 hours, rotating the chicken every two hours, so that the meat is well marinated. Then and only then is the chicken breast ready to be grilled to perfection.
