I was determined to learn how to do this myself, since I found a pack of boneless skinless thin-cut chicken breast cutlets (the perfect starter meat) in the freezer.
It was annoying how I had so little knowledge as a basis, and I had to look every little thing up.
How I thawed the chicken: honestly, I saw this at the top when I did a quick Google search. I didn't really bother reading up on it.
How I prepared the chicken: I used this recipe. I liked it, I thought the spices worked well together, from what little I know about chicken. I ended up using twice or three times that recipe though for more flavor.
How I turned on my dad's gas grill:
|One minute after putting on grill, half cooked|
|After grilling both sides, almost fully cooked|
How the chicken came out: delicious
Last thoughts: I'm glad I did this! I didn't really need chicken today, but I cooked it because I thought grilling was something I should be familiar with and know how to do. And as a bonus, it contributes to my Self Improvement Summer! My brother ate all the chicken, so I guess it was pretty good. I would make it again. First time grilling was a success! I think knowing how to cook meat and use a grill is a good life experience, and I'm sure it'll come in handy in my future adulthood.
