The color and flavor of this Grilled Creole Chicken is out of this world, plus it only marinades for 20-30 minutes before grilling...so it's quick too!
Grilled Creole Chicken - Perfect barbecue chicken recipe!

Living in Arizona, it's almost a necessity to use the grill in the summertime.  It's just way to hot to even think about turning on the stove or oven.  We probably grill out 4-5 nights a week and we usually just have a steak or grilled BBQ chicken.  Occasionally, I do something fancy like grilled pizzas or make up a new seasoning blend for the chicken.

My rules are that it has to use regular ingredients that I already in my pantry and be quick to throw together.  Plus, I don't like thinking about supper at breakfast, so it has to marinate fast.

Creole Grilled Chicken Seasonings for the best grilled chicken recipe ever!

This chicken is such a beautiful deep red color, but I promise it's not very spicy.  If you are scared, then leave out the cayenne...but even my kids ate this without issues.  In fact, they declared it the best grilled chicken in the world (no joke) and begged for more.

Simple, healthy dinners are always a winner at my table.  Since I got the family's approval, I plan on making up a huge batch of this mix so that I don't have to make it every time.

Ingredients for Grilled Creole Chicken on the BBQ

  • 4 chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tbls paprika
  • 3/4 tlbs garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbls salt
  • 1/2 tbls onion powder

  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

How to Cook Grilled Creole Chicken

1. Combine oil and all seasoning ingredients in a plastic ziptop bag.

2. Add the chicken breasts and toss to coat thoroughly with the seasoning.

3. Let marinate for 20-30 minutes. Squish baggie every 5 minutes or so just to make sure marinade coats all the chicken.

4. Prepare your grill with a medium high heat; grill chicken over direct heat for about 20-25 minutes, flipping half way through. (Times will vary depending on size and thickness of chicken and the cooking temperature of the grill.)

Serve with grilled asparagus!
