What to Cook for Dinner? How about Juicy Chicken Breasts?

Bbq Grill Chicken Quarters

Some would say creating a juicy delicious steak is the pinnacle of grilling, but chicken has been the bane of many a griller. When trying to figure out what to cook for dinner, we men may glance over chicken because of its tendency to dry up like grapes in the California sun. There’s nothing worse than a dry chicken breast that’s tough and chewy, but the dry heat of a grill makes it difficult to balance a fully cooked chicken with a juicy chicken.
