Step 1: Get your Ingredients Ready

The first step is getting your ingredients out and portioning the exact amounts you’ll need. You can omit this step if you want to save time and dishes. You’ll want to add your spices together in a bowl, measure your BBQ sauce and remove chicken breasts from packaging.

Step 6: Cutting and Serving

Remove the chicken and allow 2 minutes to rest before cutting. This allows the juices to go back into the chicken rather than running out when cutting. Slice chicken at an angle and serve. There is plenty of BBQ sauce to drizzle over or serve extra.
