4 servings


  • ¼ cup avocado oil

  • ¼ cup BBQ sauce

  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • ½ teaspoon coarse sea salt

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts


  1. Combine avocado oil, barbeque sauce, vinegar, garlic, onion powder, paprika, salt, and cayenne and stir until well mixed.

  2. Place chicken breasts into a bowl or zip-top bag and pour 2/3 of the marinade mixture over, making sure to coat all pieces. Reserve the leftover marinade to brush chicken while grilling. Allow chicken to marinate, 6 to 24 hours for best results.

  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  4. Cook chicken on the preheated grill, brushing with reserved marinade and turning halfway through cooking time, until no longer pink in the center, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Notes:

You can use any cooking oil of your choice.
