Chicken is one of the most common foods on the dinner table, and those boneless skinless breasts, the most common cut of chicken. The sad reality however, is that chicken breasts are also the hardest part of the chicken to cook well.
Grilling season for me, starts with the thermometer starts reading about 40 degrees. And chicken is often the most frequent grilling choice.

According to some sources, there are more than 9 Billion (that's Billion with a B) Chickens in the United States! That means the US has more chickens than the world has people!
