Smoked Chicken Breast
This smoked chicken breast recipe tastes great served alongside a spicy coleslaw for a summer picnic. I smoked my chicken on my Green Mountain Pellet Grill, but you can use any type of smoker for this recipe. The recipe for smoked chicken breast starts out with a chicken dry rub, and includes a delicious chicken mop. Hope you enjoy it!
- 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
- Chicken Rub:
- 2 tablespoons paprika
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 2 teaspoons turbinado sugar
- 1 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper
- Citrus Mop:
- 1 cup fresh orange juice
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 teaspoon citrus zest
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 3 tablespoons melted butter
- Mix up dry rub ingredients.
- Place 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves on saran wrap and cover with another layer. Pound with mallet until they are of even thickness. Remove top layer of plastic.
- Coat chicken with the dry rub on both sides. Let sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes.
- Drizzle chicken with about half of the citrus mop.
- Preheat smoker to 220 F. Lay chicken on the smoker and smoke for about 30 minutes. Halfway through the cooking process, mop them with the rest of the citrus mop.
- When chicken reaches 161-165, remove them from the smoker. Serve with cole slaw and barbecue sauce, or make into sandwiches.
