This grilled chicken breast has the perfect flavor thanks to a beer marinade!
I love to cook but on some days it is simply too beautiful outside to want to stay inside. Good weather doesn’t seem to diminish appetites, however.
In fact, I think sunshine might make appetites grow! Those are the days I pull out our grill and enjoy the best of both worlds.
At our former home, we had a great backyard setup for grilling. Not only was there a deck, we also built a pergola. None of that is in place at our new house yet but I still have my grill—and I know how to use it.

Well, at least Mike and Sam were super appreciative. Compliments are a good way to ensure grilled dinners keep coming.
I have smart guys.
Ingredients for Grilled Chicken Breast
Great seasoning helps make a great meal. For this grilled chicken breast marinade, I’m using just two ingredients!
A packet of KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce Mix & Dry Rub plus beer.
It’s versatile because you can use it as a dry rub or combine with a favorite liquid — like beer or juice — to customize the flavor to make it your own creation.
How to Grill Chicken Breast
I like to marinade my meat overnight so the flavor has plenty of time to soak in.
I fire up my grill and put the chicken on, evenly spacing the meat apart.
How Long to Grill Chicken Breast
Grill over direct, medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side. Internal temp should reach 165 degrees.
This easy dinner is a favorite for us that we have often in the warmer months while we spend a lot of time outside.
