Expert Tips

Season the chicken breasts and place in a resealable food storage plastic bag. Tuck into a cooler and take to grill at a picnic.

For a down-South supper, serve this chicken with rice with chopped parsley, buttered sweet potatoes and crusty French rolls.

To broil chicken, place on broiler pan. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using grilling times as a guide, turning once.
