Platter of Grilled Sliced Chicken
Easy Chicken Recipe
There is probably more easy recipes for chicken, than any other meat. My family loves chicken, and we have numerous delicious recipes. One of the recipes we enjoy is to marinate the chicken breasts in Stubbs Chicken Marinade sauce, and then cook it on the grill.
We do this a few times during the warm summer months. We have tried numerous marinades over the years, but we really like the flavor of Stubbs, and it is so simple to use right out of the bottle.
For this particular recipe, we slice the meat after it is grilled; then, we can use the chicken in many different dishes. We purchased a meat slicer; it was very inexpensive, as it is constructed from hard plastic. We have certainly gotten our money’s worth out of this slicer, and the blade is still very sharp. The blade adjusts for different widths, so we slice meat, cheese and sometimes other items.
We use boneless, skinless chicken breast to marinade in this recipe. This makes slicing the meat quite simple. Three chicken breasts are an ample amount for our family, but obviously you could cook as many as you wish.
Grilled Chicken Ratings
- 3 skinless and boneless chicken breasts
- 2/3 cup Stubbs Chicken Marinade
- Rinse chicken and cut off any excess fat from the chicken breasts.
- Place chicken in a 13" x 9" pan.
- Pour 2/3 cup of Stubbs marinade over chicken. Fork the chicken breasts several times to get the full flavor of the marinade. Turn chicken breast over, and repeat process.
- Refrigerate the chicken breast for a minimum of one hour. I typically fix the marinaded chicken in the morning and let it marinade until it is time to put it on the grill.
- Grill chicken slowly on a low fire, turning it over after approximately 10-15 minutes; grill until done.
- Do not overcook the chicken, or it will be dry. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature, which is 165° when done.
- Take chicken breasts off the grill and let cool for about 15 minutes.
- Slice the chicken, and it is ready to serve.

Another summertime favorite at our home is chicken salad. I use a variety of recipes, but this is one of our favorites.

- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup of pecans, optional
- Mix chicken,celery, apple, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
- Add low-fat mayonnaise, mix well.
- Fold in chopped eggs, blending throughout.
- Serve on a hollowed out roll with tomato and bed of crisp lettuce if desired
This is a very tasty sandwich and the calories are 384, with a fat content of 28.59 g.for 1 cup of chicken salad. If you use only 1/2 cup of chicken salad, it cuts the calories to 192, with 14g of fat.
These are just a couple of ways we use chicken. As a lower fat meat, I try to cook chicken and fish both more frequently, and use beef and pork less often. I have some other hubs on chicken dishes which you might enjoy..
Hope you enjoy these recipes and have a wonderful summer.
