Quick BBQ Chicken with Grilled Apples

Looking for a quick weeknight meal? In under 30 minutes and with just a few ingredients, prepare juicy BBQ Chicken with tart granny smith apples that really shine with the grill.


For the chicken

4 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
½ cup olive oil
2 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon cumin

For the apples

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 Granny Smith apples


  1. Preheat your grill for two-zone grilling.
  2. Pat the chicken dry. Whisk the ½ cup olive oil, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper in a bowl. Place in a sealable bag and add the chicken. Seal bag and massage chicken to evenly coat.
  3. Cook for 10 minutes or so, depending on the thickness of the chicken. Flip, cooking another 10 minutes until internal temperature reaches 75°C. An instant read thermometer is great for checking internal temperatures.
  4. Remove chicken and let rest.
  5. While chicken rests, slice apples into thin wedges. Toss in 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Place apples on indirect heat of the grill. Grill apple slices, 3 to 5 minutes until just beginning to see grill marks on both sides. Remove from grill.
    HOT TIP – Throw in some onion rings on the grill too. Onions and apples pair perfectly with chicken.
  6. Slice chicken and arrange on a platter with the apples. Drizzle accumulated juices over the chicken and serve.
