This is my go-to grilled chicken breast recipe, it comes out so juicy and flavorful, perfect over salads, sandwiches, or for meal prep!


  • Prep: 5minutes 
  • Cook: 6minutes 
  • Marinate Time: 30minutes 
  • Total: 41minutes 


  • 2 pounds thin sliced chicken breast cutlets8 pieces total preferably organic
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves crushed garlic
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried Italian herbsor use dried oregano
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • black pepperto taste


  • Prepare the Chicken: Start with your thin chicken cutlets. If you haven’t already, follow the instructions above to pound your chicken to an even thickness of about 1/4 inch.
  • Marinate the Chicken: Combine olive oil, garlic, dried herbs and vinegar in a large deep shallow dish. Season chicken on both sides with salt and black pepper then add to the marinade.
  • Make sure they’re evenly coated then, cover and marinate at least 30 minutes, but preferably up to 2 hours for better flavor. Or as long as overnight.
  • Preheat Your Grill: Heat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. If you’re using a charcoal grill, wait until the coals are covered with white ash.
  • Grill the Chicken: Once your grill is heated, oil the grates and add the chicken cutlets. Grill the chicken for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until browned and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). Because the cutlets are thin, they will cook quickly. Be careful not to overcook them, as chicken can become dry if cooked too long.
  • Rest and Serve: Once cooked, let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the chicken, making it more tender and flavorful.
