The Different Types Of Chicken You Can Grill!

As you might have noticed, chicken is a staple in many people’s diets. It’s affordable, versatile, and relatively healthy. But did you know that there are different types of chicken? Here’s a quick guide to the other types of chicken and how they’re best used.

1. White Meat Chicken

White meat chicken is the most common type of chicken. It’s lean and has a mild flavor. White meat chicken is great for grilling, as it’s less likely to dry out than dark meat chicken.

2. Dark Meat Chicken

Dark meat chicken has a richer flavor than white meat chicken. It’s also more moist and tender. Dark meat chicken is ideal for recipes that call for long cooking times, such as stews or braises.

3. Ground Chicken

Ground chicken is a versatile option that can be used in many different recipes. It’s perfect for making burgers, meatballs, or even tacos. Ground chicken is usually made from a mix of white and dark meat chicken.

4. Boneless, Skinless Chicken

Boneless, skinless chicken is a popular choice for many people, as it’s easy to cook and relatively healthy. It is perfect for grilling, as it won’t dry out as easily as chicken with the bone and skin still attached.

5. Bone-In, Skin-On Chicken

Bone-in, skin-on chicken is a good choice for recipes that require a longer cooking time, as the bone and skin help to keep the chicken moist. Chicken with the bone and skin still attached is also often more flavorful than boneless, skinless chicken.

Now that you know about the different types of chicken, it’s time to get grilling! These grilled chicken recipes are sure to be a hit at your next summer cookout.
