Just in time for your 4th of July cookout, here’s a super-easy recipe for killer grilled chicken…

What you’ll need:


  • Rinse and pat dry 2-3 lbs. of fresh boneless/skinless chicken breasts (any other cut of chicken will work too).  Using fresh chicken is best, however frozen can be used if it is fully thawed first.
  • Trim any excess fat or skin (if using skin-on pieces) from chicken.


  • Place chicken parts in zip-top plastic bag.
  • Pour 1/4 cup olive oil into bag with the chicken.
  • Pour 1/4 cup Oakridge BBQ rub into the bag with the chicken and the oil.
  • Zip bag closed.
  • Shake bag around until all parts are equally covered with rub/oil mixture.
  • Place seasoned chicken bag in refrigerator for a minimum of 30 minutes (2 hours is optimum).
  • Pre-heat grill to a medium-high heat.  You don’t want it “rocket hot”…
  • After seasoned chicken has sufficiently rested in fridge, remove chicken from the bag and place it directly on the grill.  Watch it closely and move/flip if it starts to char to quickly.
  • Grill with the lid on for about 6 minutes per side.  Check frequently.  More/less cooking time may be required due to the size of your chicken pieces.
  • Remove from grill when internal temperature reads 165º.
  • Plate and enjoy!
