Grill Marks –Guaranteed!
To ensure your grilled chicken develops golden-brown grill marks, remember these grilling tips: First, make sure the grill is piping hot (about 500ªF). Then, place chicken on the grates and let it cook, untouched, for at least 5 minutes (or up to 7 minutes). Then, flip once. Allowing the chicken to cook undisturbed over the hot flame will give the heat enough time to create the sear marks you love.
