Easy Creole Chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy

I make it a point to peruse the marinade section of my local grocery store on a regular basis. One of my favorite things to make is marinated roasted chicken breasts. Sliced and served on a bed of greens, I get a healthy dinner salad that is packed with flavor. This easy Creole chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy has a light spicy flavor that didn’t overwhelm my salad.

And as always, cooking chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy is of course, easy. I used Tony Chachere’s chicken marinade, which is a combination of Italian dressing and Cajun seasonings. The chicken came out tender and moist, just like I wanted. Perfect.

When using any kind of marinade you need to make sure it doesn’t have a high sugar content. The Big Easy cooks at a pretty high temperature and sugary marinades may burn long before whatever you are cooking gets done so steer clear of them.
