Why Eat Grilled Chicken?


Chicken should be a superfood!


Chicken has been a staple food around the world for generations, but have you ever stopped to consider why? Not only is it plentiful and affordable, but the health benefits of eating chicken are incredible.


If strength and power are important to you, eating chicken helps to build muscle mass and strengthen bones. For those of you aiming for a healthy diet, protein-dense chicken helps you to stay fuller for longer, preventing you from snacking on unhealthy treats between meals.  Low fat, low sodium and a wealth of nutritional benefits such as vitamin A, B6 and B12 (the list goes on…) make chicken the perfect choice for a balanced, healthy diet.


But healthy foods are so boring! I hear you cry. But wait. Not only is chicken juicy and delicious, but it also acts as a blank canvas for diverse and adventurous flavours.

Get adventurous with grilled chicken


Grilled chicken has always struggled to shake the stigma of their tastier cousin –  the fried chicken. But grilled chicken doesn’t have to be dull. Here’s how to make grilled chicken tasty, indulgent and healthy.



To marinate chicken, you leave it in the marinade for several hours or even overnight for the meat to take on the flavours of its marinade. Try soy sauce, ginger and garlic for a teriyaki feel, or venture into a more indulgent world of yoghurt based marinades. There’s no right or wrong here, so experiment with different flavour combinations to give your chicken an exciting kick.


Dry Rubs

Dry rubs are simply a mix of dry herbs and other flavourings that you rub onto the chicken before you cook, but they can completely change your chicken experience! Depending on the density of your spice mix, it might leave a slightly crispy coating on the outside of the chicken too for an extra pop! Any herb or spice goes here, so mix it up. Try a salt and sugar rub for something a little bit different!

Glazes are perhaps the least healthy way to flavour your chicken as they often involve sugars, but for a once in a while treat, a glaze is going to really elevate your grilled chicken dish! Try a mix of maple syrup and Dijon mustard for a sweet and tangy taste or use BBQ
