How to smoke a chicken breast on a pellet grill

See why a pellet cooker is the secret to juicy, smoky chicken.

Let's get grilling

1

Preheat your pellet smoker to 225°F.

2

Wash the chicken breasts and pat dry. If the chicken breasts have tenderloins attached, use a knife to remove them, and save for another dish.

3

Slather the chicken breasts with oil and season each chicken breast on both sides with chicken seasoning.

4

When your smoker has reached 225°F, place the chicken breasts in the center of the grill. Insert a temperature probe into the thickest and most center part of the chicken breast. Smoke at 225°F until the chicken breast reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. This should take about one hour total. Optional (recommended): If you prefer a slight crust on your chicken breast, smoke the meat at 225°F until it reaches an internal temperature of 115°F. Then, raise the temperature of your smoker to 375°F until your chicken breast reaches a safe internal temperature of 165°F.
