Italian Grilled Chicken Breast




I would argue that boneless, skinless chicken breasts are the number one protein in the average American’s refrigerator. However, when they are not properly cooked, they can become a boring waste of money.

The goal of today’s video is to show how to imbue flavor and maintain moisture with proper marinating and grilling technique. While a simple mix of kosher salt and pepper works wonders, today’s recipe is a step up and will yield a prepared protein that will induce the “Cave Crave”.

With all this being said, I am making it my primary goal to provide consistent, high-quality content in a timely manner. I hope that you’ll follow along and support this effort.

I’ll leave you with this quote:

“Keep It Paleo!”

Zone Breakdown:

Proteins: (24)

We are using 4 Chicken Breast which weigh between 6-8oz each, so we are going to average them at 7 each.  After cooking they cook down to about 6oz, and since there are 4 of them we get a total of 24 protein Blocks.

Balancing Act: 

Everything else on this recipe is for the marinade so we aren’t going to count it towards our blocks as its just adding flavor.  The chicken however will yield 24 protein blocks which you can divide up into taste 3-5 block portions.
