Should You Season Chicken Before Grilling?

If you're wondering what to put on grilled chicken before it goes on the grill, the answer is whatever you fancy! While you can literally grill chicken without anything on it, a little seasoning always goes a long way.

If you're in a bit of a hurry and don't have much time before cooking, a quick sprinkle of salt and pepper will work. If you have time to prepare beforehand, you can make a marinade with mustard, honey, lemon, along with a bit of spices (think powdered garlic or onion), and then season the chicken for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
