the key to grilling juicy chicken

Grilling chicken can be tricky. I don’t think there is anyone more scared of getting food poisoning than me. When I grill the chicken at our house, it is grilled to a crisp, and needs a lot of sauce.

My husband taught me two words that have stuck with me through the years. They are “low and slow”.

When you are grilling chicken, cook it on low, and let them cook with time. Even if it takes an extra 7 minutes, it will be worth it for juicy and tender chicken.

I also recommend investing in a food thermometer, they are only a few dollars, and when the middle of your chicken reaches 165 degrees, you know the chicken is done and juicy.

    Haven't tried this recipe but sounds good. My comment is in the list of ingredients it say 2 lemons for garnish and extra zest but at the end of directions it states "serve with fresh lime and enjoy". Which is it -lemon or lime?
