We know what you're thinking: grilled chicken is the most boring thing you can cook on the barbecue (and the least exciting thing you could possibly eat). When you have the option to make burgers and steaks on the grill, why in the world would you ever opt for chicken? We're about to show you how you've significantly underestimated the power of your grill -- and chicken in general.

When grilled right, chicken is perfectly tender and nicely charred. Whether you're grilling the breast, wings or thighs -- with the right seasoning and marinade -- you won't miss the red meat for a second. Plus, grilled chicken pairs perfectly with our favorite backyard dish, potato salad.
