Easy and Healthy BBQ Chicken

BBQ chicken is a summertime grill staple in our house.  We absolutely love grilling out on our roof deck and since we had some friends in town, and not a lot of time, it was a perfect excuse to whip up a little quick, easy and healthy BBQ chicken.

There are only two ingredients besides salt and pepper...didn't I tell you this was easy?

- Boneless, skinless, trimmed chicken breasts
- BBQ sauce (any kind you like; use as much or as little as you like) -- we used Jack Daniels Original #7
- Freshly cracked salt and pepper to taste

- Place chicken in any kind of dish
- Pour BBQ sauce over chicken; massage sauce into chicken well
- Marinate for 30 minutes (or longer if you have time!)

- Place chicken on hot grill for about 5 minutes per side; baste with leftover BBQ sauce throughout cooking process

- Grill until just cooked through (is one already missing?)

We served this grilled BBQ chicken with roasted rosemary potatoes and garlicky green beans.  Since we were entertaining, we also had a light salad course of insalata caprese.  Perfect Sunday night rooftop feast!
