Grilled Chicken and Artichoke Carbonara
Impress your cookout crowd with our grilled chicken recipes, including juicy chicken burger recipes, zesty barbecue, and grilled chicken breast. Satisfying and delicious, grilled chicken is the perfect way to celebrate summer.

Beer Can Chicken

Beer and barbecue go hand in hand, and this grilled chicken recipe is no exception. Our technique of infusing the chicken with beer leaves every bite tender, juicy, and full of mouthwatering flavor.

Thai Chicken Satay with Grilled Pineapple

Chicken kabobs go global with the help of three simple ingredients: Thai seasoning, sweet-and-sour sauce, and Thai basil. Serve with grilled pineapple and hot cooked rice to finish the meal.

All-American Barbecued Chicken

Celebrate the essence of backyard grilling with our take on the all-American classic: a balsamic barbecue sauce. To get a gorgeous (and delicious!) glaze, brush on the sauce only during the last 15 minutes of grilling; any longer and it will burn.

Bricked Chicken with Grilled Oranges

If you've never heard of bricked chicken, there's no need to fret. This technique involves flattening a whole chicken using real bricks for a quicker cook time. We used grilled oranges and citrus seasoning to add bold flavor to our bird, but any home recipe will do.

Chorizo-Chicken Burger

Turn ground chicken into a grilling fiesta by crafting these Mexican-inspired burgers that feature chorizo sausage and a melty cheese filling. Ancho chile peppers add an extra layer of spiciness to the chicken recipe.

Chicken Paillards

A zesty lemon marinade and fresh gazpacho salsa turn grilled chicken breast into a bright, exotic affair. The secret to our perfectly grilled meat? Use a mallet to flatten the chicken evenly for a uniform char.

Smoked Macaroni and Cheese

Ooey-gooey macaroni and cheese gets a fun makeover when served with delicious grilled chicken. Surprise! The cheesy casserole is cooked alongside the chicken on the grill for added smoky flavor.

Grilled Chicken Salad

Seasoned grilled chicken, pine nuts, creamy goat cheese, and juicy grapes top crisp greens. Try it with our quick and easy homemade garlicky vinaigrette.

Chicken Caesar Burger

Check out this twist on classic burger recipes. The patties stay moist thanks to the onion and Parmesan cheese mixed in with the ground chicken. To finish, top each burger with Caesar salad dressing instead of ketchup.

Grilled Chicken with Watermelon Glaze

Watermelon, apple jelly, crushed red pepper, and hot sauce make a spicy-sweet glaze for this grilled chicken dish that's perfect for summertime.

Tequila-Honey-Lime-Marinated Drumsticks

A fuss-free, savory-sweet marinade makes this chicken recipe sing. We use untoasted walnut oil in the bold sauce -- its lightness enhances the flavor of the other ingredients.

Tangerine Tare-Glazed Grilled Chicken Salad

Tangerines, red sweet peppers, snow peas, and fried wonton wrappers add wonderful color and texture to this Asian chicken-and-noodle salad. Try it this week for an easy way to spice up grilled chicken.

Grilled Chicken and Artichoke Carbonara

Show off grilled chicken with a simple pasta dish, like our artichoke carbonara. Crumbled bacon adds unexpected salty flavor to the dinner recipe.
