How to Cook BBQ Grilled Chicken and Onions

by Katina N

This recipe is for BBQ grilled chicken. I made a sandwich out of it, but you can eat it without the buns. :)


  • 2 Teaspoons BBQ per chicken breast
  • 2 Chicken breasts, filleted
  • 2 Hamburger buns, optional
  • ½ Onion, sliced (optional)
  • 2 Pepper jack cheese
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Turn on your grill to high heat and close the lid

    Step 2

    Slice the onion.

    Step 3

    Fillet the chicken breast so it will fit on a hamburger bun (if you are making a chicken burger) or you can cut the chicken into strips.

    Step 4

    Grab the BBQ sauce. Pictured is a Dr. Pepper BBQ sauce I made using a modified version of a guide on here. If you want a store brand, I'd recommend bullseye. Yum!

    Step 5

    Spoon 1 tsp on your chicken breast.

    Step 6

    Take your hands or a brush and cover the chicken breast.

    Step 7

    Repeat on each side and for each breast.

    Step 8

    Throw the chicken and onions on the grill.

    Step 9

    After 4 minutes, flip the chicken. You can tell it's ready because the edges will be white. When you flip the chicken, flip the onions as well. :)

    Step 10

    I put additional BBQ sauce for extra flavor. Turn the temp to med-high and cook for 5 mins. When the internal temp reaches 165 Fahrenheit, it's done. If you want a sandwich, continue to the next step.

    Step 11

    Now is a good time to start toasting your sandwich buns.

    Step 12

    At this point, I added cheese on top of the chicken.

    Step 13

    When the chicken is ready to take off, add the grilled onions on top.

    Step 14

    Put the grilled BBQ chicken on top of a sandwich bun and serve with your favorite side. Enjoy!
