  • 2 tsp (10 mL) olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) salt

  1. Use a kitchen brush to coat top of chicken breasts with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  2. Preheat grill over medium high heat. Grill approximately 10 minutes on each side and chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
