Once the chicken is marinated, grill it on medium heat for about 6-8 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit. During the last few minutes of grilling, brush the barbecue sauce onto the chicken for an extra layer of flavor. Let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving to allow the juices to redistribute.
