Did You Know?
Grill the Perfect Chicken 
The first thing to think about when grilling chicken is which cut to pick. Do you have a lot of time to kick back and grill, or is this a fast weeknight dinner that has to happen in 30 minutes? Remember that the larger the cut of chicken (whole birds, bone-in chicken breasts, whole legs), the longer it will take to cook. Stick with boneless or even consider cutting boneless chicken into small pieces and threading it onto skewers if the cooking needs to happen quickly.
