Let It Marinate
Grilling chicken is NOT an easy task because the meat wants to dry up and the outside wants to cook quicker than the inside. The best thing to do when grilling chicken is to marinate the meat overnight and to base it while cooking. From my experience, covering the chicken helps the outside from burning and it makes the chicken tender as well. This taste of heaven is called Grilled Jamaican Jerk Chicken. The chicken is marinated with mild jerk seasonings and then grilled to perfection. On the side, we have mango pineapple salsa, steamed broccoli, and yellow rice. If I were to describe this chicken in one word, it would be JUICCCCCCCY. I’m a strong lover of white meat, so for a chicken breast to be this juicy was a PLUS.

FOOD TIP: Marinate your meats to make them tender, juicy, and flavorful.
