Default Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts

Last night my wife brought home a 20 lb box of boneless skinless chicken breasts.

Any suggestions on what to do with them?

I like to marinate and grill them, Makes great kabobs, also great grilled and served on salads. I find salad dressing makes a great marinade.
me: I don't drink anymore

Yelonutz: me either, but, then again, I don't drink any less

Brine and smoke with choice of rub and wood ( I like apple and cherry ) - I have a water smoker and have never had these turn out dry - just watch temps carefully.

I also pound thin and roll up with mushroom/cheese/herb mixture and smoke - very good

Marinate some of them in pure Amaretto for a couple hours. Baste them with amaretto as you grill them and sprinkle a little black pepper on them as they are finishing up on the grill.

marinate, season with your favorite steak seasoning, soak in chilli sauce, grill indirect until done while mopping with the chilli sauce.

i have substituted other sauces for the chilli sauce, but that is the favorite. sometimes i will weave a few pieces of bacon through them as well. they are like the pork loin of the chicken, so many ideas so little time.

Marinate overnight in Italian dressing and smoke them for smoked chicken salad.

We grill them all the time here. Love 'em. Quick brine or marinade, a little seasoning, sauce of some sort of you wish. Good and easy eats the whole family here loves. Just cook them to the right temp of 165 is the trick.

The sky's the limit. They're basically a blank canvas for whatever marinade/rub/sauce you want. I suggest grilling over high heat, though, unless you brine.

Personally, I find mojo criollo to be the "default" marinade and I end up grilling them.

I got a recipe today from " Nibble me this" for chicken pillows with parmesan sauce that warrants a try this weekend.

I like to marinade / grill them just like roadside chicken. Then toss on a toasted bun for a sandwich, or cut up and put in a salad.

Or my favorite - take the roadside chicken breast, chop it up, fry and crumble some bacon, mix it all with white bbq sauce and throw it in a pan to heat up. Put this mix on some bread with a thick slice of cheese and grill it like a grilled cheese sandwich.

As simple as rubbing with some EVOO and then a sprinkle of Kosher Salt & fresh Cracked Pepper. Cover & let sit in fridge for a couple hours. Grill/smoke indirect @ ~350F with a little Apple Wood. Throw on a few baked potatoes (I usually start them out in the micro & finish on the grill) & a salad & you are set. Cheers!!!
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

Marinade them and grill them to an internal temp of 160*. I started to butterfly all of mine and have had great success. I highly suggest trying it.
