- 3. Healthy barbecued chicken
In this BBQ chicken recipe, grilled chicken is updated with an easy, healthier barbecue sauce.

Move chicken over indirect heat and continue to grill for about 18–25 minutes, depending on size. Bast the chicken with barbecue sauce, turning it occasionally. Transfer chicken to a platter and serve with the reserved sauce alongside.
- 4. Australian grilled chicken
Australian cooking is stylish and chic, always innovative and yet basically quite simple. For this Australian BBQ chicken recipe, you will need vinegar, garlic, freshly ground pepper, lime, boneless chicken breasts and some fresh arugula.

After gently pounding the chicken breasts until they have a uniform thickness, place in baking dish and cover with marinade for about 5 minutes.

Grilled limes caramelize slightly, providing an eye appeal and a lovely citrus element when squeezed over the chicken.
