Grilled Chicken- easy weekend prep

img_5446My College student son is home for the summer and we had a challenge to each other to jump on the health train and do a summer workout challenge.  Part of the challenge was giving up sugars and carbs and eating more healthy protein and whole grains.  I have found with his appetite I need to have easy healthy proteins to throw on a salad or heat up with wild rice was the best. I love grilling a mess of chicken breast and then having them in the fridge for recipes.  Here is my easy grilled herb chicken breast.

I like to get a the jumbo package of organic chicken breast and fillet each breast into two portions.  It cooks faster and seems to come out more juicy.

The big packs of chicken I will cook up half and then single wrap the other Breasts to put in the freezer for future use,

I marinade in olive oil, herb de Provence seasoning, garlic seasoning and lemon pepper.  allow it to marinate at room temp for 30 minutes.

then grille to 165 degrees. approximately 10 minutes each side on a hot  med high heat gas grille.

 

Then store in a airtight container in the fridge.  we seem to go thru these in less than a couple of days.  so good cold, or chopped in a salad.  Makes taco night a breeze when getting home from a long day at work.  Enjoy the shortcut.
