  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Remove chicken from the marinade and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade.

  • Cook chicken on the preheated grill over indirect heat until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 6 to 8 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
