Chicken Breasts on Blackstone

We love having chicken for dinner, and I am always on the lookout for new ways to cook chicken. I have to say that cooking chicken on the Blackstone Griddle is one of the quickest and easiest ways to make it.

I actually prefer chicken cutlets as they cook very fast, and you don’t even have to marinate them. Just season, and cook until done. This takes about 6 minutes, tops!

We make a bunch of cutlets at once and use leftover chicken for meal prep. Blackstone chicken works well over salads, in chicken quesadillas and in just about any recipe that calls for cooked chicken.

You only need a few simple ingredients from your grocery store for this easy recipe. Full amounts are in the printable recipe card below.

  • Chicken breasts — Look for cutlets or you can slice boneless skinless chicken breasts in half so they cook faster. Chicken thighs can also be used here.
  • Seasonings — sea salt, black pepper, Italian seasoning. I sometimes use herbes de Provence in place of Italian.
  • Avocado oil — or vegetable oil or any oil with a high smoke point. Olive oil is not recommended for the griddle. We also like to add a little butter, but this is optional.

How to Cook Chicken on Blackstone

First, season the chicken on both sides with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Then, heat the Blackstone to medium heat, (350-375) and coat the griddle surface with avocado oil.

We like to add a little butter right before adding the chicken, but this is up to you. Next, place the chicken on the surface of the griddle.

Cutlets cook fast, so turn the chicken over after 2-3 minutes. If you are using large chicken breasts, flip chicken after 4-6 minutes. Cook chicken on the second side until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F, according to a meat thermometer or instant-read thermometer.

Remove the cooked chicken to a platter or foil pan, and cover with aluminum foil. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving. This will give you delicious, juicy chicken!

What to Serve with Blackstone Grilled Chicken

Almost anything pairs well with griddle chicken. You can cook asparagus, potatoes or other vegetables on the griddle while the chicken is cooking. We also like microwave asparagus, baked beans, microwave baked potatoes, air fryer corn on the cob or Instant Pot jasmine rice. All are perfect side dishes for summer.

Store leftover grilled chicken in an airtight container in your fridge for 3-4 days. We usually reheat chicken in the microwave if we don’t use if in other recipes. The chicken freezes well for up to 3 months.

Recipe Tip

Use this basic recipe with your favorite marinade or seasoning blend.

If you can’t find cutlets, slice chicken breasts in half.

Allow chicken to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
