Read this recipe to make barbecued cheesy chicken on your Pit Boss Grill.

Prep Time

Cook Time

  • 4 plump chicken breasts
  • 4 slices of aged cheddar
  • 1 tsp. of extra-virgin olive oil
  • Pit Boss Mandarin Habanero Spice



The simple additions of aged cheddar cheese and the right spice will transform any tired dish into a booming success.

If that's something you may be interested in, begin by gently patting down your thawed chicken breasts with a paper towel. With a serrated knife, make three small incisions into the top of the breasts. Next, apply a gentle touch of olive oil and Pit Boss Mandarin Habanero seasoning and let chill for 30 minutes.

Fill your hopper with your choice of pellets (we chose Competition Blend), preheat your grill to 350°F and barbecue your chicken breasts for 30 minutes. Next, place a slice of cheddar cheese on top of each breast.

Heat for another 5-10 minutes or until the cheese has fully melted into the incisions you made earlier. Remove and serve for a tender chicken breast with a spicy kick and hot cheesy center. You'll receive too much credit for a recipe this easy.
