Perfect Grilled Juicy Chicken on the Arteflame Grill

Introduction

Unlock the secret to juicy chicken with this detailed recipe, optimized for the Arteflame grill. Using the reverse searing method, you’ll lock in the juices with a perfect sear on the center grill grate and finish cooking on the flat cooktop to achieve your desired doneness. Follow this guide to master the art of grilling chicken that looks and tastes amazing.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter (optional, for coating)

Instructions

  1. Marinate the Chicken:

    • In a large bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, rosemary, thyme, sea salt, and black pepper. Add the chicken breasts and marinate for at least 30 minutes, preferably overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. Fire Up the Grill:

    • Preheat your Arteflame grill to high heat (over 1,000°F) to get it ready for grilling.
  3. Sear the Chicken:

    • Remove the chicken from the marinade and pat it dry with paper towels. Place the chicken breasts on the center grill grate and sear for about 2-3 minutes on each side to develop a golden crust.
  4. Finish on the Flat Top:

    • Move the chicken to the flat top griddle surrounding the grill grate. Lower the heat to medium and continue cooking, turning occasionally, until the internal temperature reaches 160°F.
  5. Rest and Serve:

    • Remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for 5-10 minutes before serving. This allows the internal temperature to rise to 165°F and the juices to redistribute.
  6. Garnish and Serve:

    • Optionally, coat the chicken with a bit of butter for extra flavor and garnish with fresh herbs.

Tips

  • Butter vs. Olive Oil: Butter adds a rich flavor to the chicken, while olive oil keeps it moist.
  • Don't Overcook the Chicken: Remember, the chicken will keep cooking after you removed it from the grill.  Don't overcook it!  If need be, cut it open and see if it is still slightly pink on the inside.  This is perfect as it will cook completely as it rests.
  • High Heat for Searing: Achieve a perfect sear by utilizing the high heat of the Arteflame Grill.
  • Resting Time: Allow the chicken to rest before serving to lock in the juices.

Conclusion

Grilling chicken on the Arteflame grill not only delivers unparalleled flavor and tenderness but also turns your meal into an unforgettable culinary event. Embrace the process and enjoy the ultimate juicy chicken experience.

Variations

  1. Herb-Crusted Chicken:

    • Add a mixture of finely chopped parsley, basil, and oregano to the marinade for an herbaceous flavor.
  2. Spicy Chicken:

    • Incorporate crushed red pepper flakes and smoked paprika into the marinade for a spicy kick.
  3. Garlic Butter Chicken:

    • Baste the chicken with garlic-infused butter during the final stages of grilling for a rich, savory flavor.
  4. Lemon Pepper Chicken:

    • Add freshly ground lemon pepper to the marinade for a zesty twist.
  5. Honey Mustard Chicken:

    • Mix honey and Dijon mustard into the marinade for a sweet and tangy flavor.

Best Pairings

  • Drink: A chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc or iced tea.
  • Appetizer: A fresh garden salad with vinaigrette.
  • Dessert: A light lemon sorbet or a slice of key lime pie.
