  • Cooking Method: Grilling
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Cuisine Type: American


  • 1 lb chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Juice of 1 lemon

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat (around 400°F).
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together olive oil, soy sauce, honey, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, salt, and lemon juice.
  3. Add the chicken breasts to the bowl, ensuring each piece is well-coated with the marinade. Let sit for 5 minutes. Quick and dirty, that’s the spirit!
  4. Place chicken on the grill and cook for 6-7 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  5. Remove from grill and let rest for 5 minutes before serving. This lets the juices do a happy dance inside the chicken instead of all over your cutting board.


  • Alternative Ingredients: Swap chicken for pork chops or tofu if you’re feeling adventurous.
  • Garnishing Options: Garnish with fresh cilantro or a sprinkle of red chili flakes for a spicy kick.
  • Cooking Tips: Use a meat thermometer to avoid the guesswork and give your chicken perfect doneness every time.
