  • 1.5 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tbsp Cumin powder
  • 1 tsp Coriander powder
  • 1.5 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Ginger powder
  • 1.5 tsp Onion powder
  • 1.5 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 2 pounds Boneless chicken breasts
  • 1-2 tbsp Olive oil


  • In a small mixing bowl, combine all the spices together.
  • Sprinkle each side of chicken with this mixture.
  • Drizzle oil on each side and rub everything evenly with your fingers. 
  • Place these breasts on greased grill grates over direct heat at about 400 degrees. Close lid. Remember to keep one burner off for indirect heating.
  • Cook each side for about 5-8 minutes, depending on the chicken's thickness.
  • Move breasts over to indirect heat. Cover lid and continue cooking until internal temperature of 165 degrees F is reached and chicken is done.
  • Remove from grill and place on a cutting board. 
  • Cover loosely with foil and let them rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing. 
  • Garnish with fresh parsley and drizzle some lemon juice on top, if you like. Enjoy!


  • Read all my tips above.
  • Tastes best when served immediately after resting but leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
