Grill
Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade. Discard the marinade. Grill the chicken breasts for 3 to 4 minutes per side until done. Chicken is done when it feels firm to the touch and a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F. Remove from the grill and let rest for 2 to 3 minutes. Chop into bite-sized pieces.
