grilled chicken with cornI was alone at home today, I hate when this happens. I mean, yes I like to have some me time, but only when I plan for it! Anyways, I am hungry too 🙂 and not in the mood to cook 🙁 so I made something simple, Grilled Chicken Breast.

grilled chicken with corn 8I had this recipe of grilled chicken breast, which I use often but never shared before.

grilled chicken with corn 3 Cooking the chicken will take 4 minutes, but you have to wait for 20 minutes, which is the time for marinating the chicken.

I have used chicken breast, but you can use chicken thighs too. I have mentioned below the recipe the total amount of calories in case you decided to use chicken thighs.

Grilled Chicken Breast

 200gm Skinless boneless chicken breast

2 teaspoon olive oil

2 teaspoon lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon thyme

1/2 teaspoon coriander powder

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


Black pepper

– Mix the spices with olive oil, salt, and lemon juice.

– Pound the chicken breast to make it even in thickness. Rub the chicken with the mixture and keep it aside for 20 minutes.

– Heat the grill. Grill the chicken for two to three minutes on each side.

– When done cover the chicken immediately, and let it rest for two minutes, this will keep the chicken breast tender and juicy.

– Serve hot.

      Hi Kay,
      The videos are something I tried for sometimes just for fun, but it took a lot of my time, since I really like to concentrate on my blog and photography.
      I’m on a long vacation right now, and will post more recipes when I’m back 🙂

  5. Add more low calorie dinners 🙂 and you shoud still make videos on youtube.
