How to Make Grilled Chicken

  1. Prep the grill - Get your grill warming up on low for a few minutes until you reach about 350 degrees.
  2. Season the food - Salt and pepper your chicken and corn until all sides are nice and covered. Add the cajun seasoning if desired.
  3. Set on the grill - Place the corn towards the back of the grill evenly. Place the chicken on the front of the grill evenly.
  4. Grilling - Grill the chicken for ten minutes on each side at 350 degrees. Grill corn at the same temp, rotating it one quarter every five minutes. Remove from the grill and enjoy!

Tips and Variations

  • Storage - Store both the grilled chicken and grilled corn in the fridge or freezer in a sealed container. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days and in the freezer for up to 2 months.
  • Reheating - Heat both the grilled corn on the cob and keto grilled chicken in the microwave. If heating from the freezer, let it thaw before heating, for the best results. 
  • Use other chicken cuts - You can also use this recipe to make grilled chicken breasts or grilled chicken thighs as well. You may need to adjust the grilling time on each side, however, the same basic recipe remains the same.
  • Use other seasonings - As long as your seasoning is keto-friendly, feel free to use it in place of the seasonings mentioned. You’ll still want to add the salt and pepper as a base if your recipe doesn’t contain these. Salt is the most important as this helps pull out the flavor in the meat. 
  • Make your own seasoning mixture - I sometimes like to just use my own seasoning mixes and make a keto-friendly sweet and hot or just extra spicy one. I do this by mixing paprika, garlic powder, dried chopped onion, cayenne, and some brown sugar substitute. Grilled chicken recipes are easy to customize when it comes to seasonings, so have fun with it!
  • Season the corn too - Don’t forget to cover the grilled corn cob in some seasoning as well. You can start by adding butter, then add the seasoning on top so it will stay on better.
  • Leave the husk on the corn - If you want a neater presentation, you can tear the husk down to where it’s still on the corn, but the kernels are exposed. This makes for easier turning while on the grill, gives a better hold for eating, and makes for a pretty presentation. You can also remove the husk but leave the stem longer.
