I was alone at home today, I hate when this happens. I mean, yes I like to have some me time, but only when I plan for it! Anyways, I am hungry too 🙂 and not in the mood to cook 🙁 so I made something simple, Grilled Chicken Breast.

I had this recipe of grilled chicken breast, which I use often but never shared before.

Cooking the chicken will take 4 minutes, but you have to wait for 20 minutes, which is the time for marinating the chicken.

I have used chicken breast, but you can use chicken thighs too. I have mentioned below the recipe the total amount of calories in case you decided to use chicken thighs.

If you follow the steps in the method, then your chicken breast will come out tender and juicy.

Grilled Chicken Breast

Serves one. 300 calories

 200gm Skinless boneless chicken breast

2 teaspoon olive oil

2 teaspoon lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon thyme

1/2 teaspoon coriander powder

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


Black pepper

– Mix the spices with olive oil, salt, and lemon juice.

– Pound the chicken breast to make it even in thickness. Rub the chicken with the mixture and keep it aside for 20 minutes.

– Heat the grill. Grill the chicken for two to three minutes on each side.

– When done cover the chicken immediately, and let it rest for two minutes, this will keep the chicken breast tender and juicy.

– Serve hot.


* Do not press the chicken breast while grilling.

** You can use 200gm chicken thighs instead of the breast. The calories will be 319.

      Hi Kay,
      The videos are something I tried for sometimes just for fun, but it took a lot of my time, since I really like to concentrate on my blog and photography.
      I’m on a long vacation right now, and will post more recipes when I’m back 🙂

  5. Add more low calorie dinners 🙂 and you shoud still make videos on youtube.
