How Long Does it Take to Grill Chicken?
Is Grilled Chicken Healthy?
What Foods are Highest in Protein?
Grilled chicken is a great choice when you are looking for a meal with lots of high-quality protein, but also low in calories and fat. Especially after a tough workout you need to make sure you are refueling throughout the day with regular protein from nutritious sources. Some other great sources of protein are black beans, lentils, low fat dairy products, soybeans, quinoa, oats, nuts, seeds, and even many veggies like spinach, broccoli, and alfalfa sprouts.
This grilled chicken recipe below is perfect for your protein needs. It’s even great for leftovers for meal prep the next day.
How Much Protein Should I Eat Per Day?
The Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) is 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight. That means a 150 pound person (68 kg) would need about 55 grams of protein per day. Protein requirements depend on other individual factors such as age, activity level, muscle mass, fitness goals, and health.
Typically between 0.8-1.3 grams of protein per kg is beneficial for moderate exercisers. With more exercise, the body requires more protein. Endurance athletes may require 1.2-1.5 grams of protein per kg of body weight, and strength and power athletes may require 1.5-1.7 grams of protein per kg of body weight per day.
It’s actually fairly simple to reach protein requirements. The average American eats plenty of protein per day- even up to 3 times their recommended amount without even trying. A better goal would be to focus on a variety of high-quality proteins coming from nutritious sources, and to make sure to consume enough protein spaced evenly throughout the day at every meal and snack.

Best Side Dishes with Grilled Chicken
The Best Grilled Chicken Recipe
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup fat-free Italian dressing
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
In a large bowl, mix together dressing, teriyaki sauce, and garlic. Add chicken breasts and cover with plastic wrap. Stick in the fridge and let marinade for at least 2 hours (I actually prefer to let mine marinade overnight).
Grill over medium high heat, a couple of minutes on each side (until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees).
Serve with grilled vegetables and enjoy!
