    I cut in half (to make thinner) and then pound to make even. I like Julio's rub (cumin is the main addition to it). I cook raised direct on the Mini (with a Woo) but regular on anysize will  work, just have to watch them (thin). I want a hot fire 400 and as I said direct. I do not oil them. This is a fast cook, don't go inside and make a drink.

    I like to soak in a brine first. That way they won't dry out as much. Boneless, skinless breasts can get pretty dry.

    I cook chicken every week. I set the the temp around 350 and pull when the breast are at 160. It usually takes around 17-20 minutes for the chicken to get done. I do mine direct and do not raise the grid. Chicken turns out perfect each time.
