Beer Marinated Grilled Chicken Breast

By  | Last Updated:  

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!

Easy Beer BBQ Chicken

For dinner I grilled beer marinated chicken breasts. Awesome taste and it’s ridiculously simple. The crowds roared!

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 Beer Chicken

Have you tried KC Masterpiece® BBQ Sauce Mix & Dry Rub? It’s got a great taste!

What I especially like about it is how you can actually customize the flavor to make it your own creation.

BBQ Beer Marinade

You mix a pouch of the sauce/dry rub with ¾ – one cup of your choice of beer, soda, juice, water, etc., for sauce or marinade.

Or you can also use it as a dry rub directly on meat. So good!

KC Masterpiece® BBQ Sauce Mix & Dry Rub is a blend of rich tomato sauce, molasses and spices. With selections of Original, Sweet Honey, and Spicy Habanero, you have even more options for customizing your favorite barbecue flavors. Find it at grocery stores, mass merchandisers and warehouse/club stores nationwide.

And in case you were wondering, the KC does stand for Kansas City. It was originally created in 1978 by a physician who was also a barbecue aficionado, in Kansas City. So you might say KC Masterpiece® is just what the doctor ordered!
