Smoked Chicken Breasts

Smoked Chicken Breasts are easy to make on the pellet grill.  The chicken breasts are juicy, flavorful, with a crispy exterior from the dry rub.  No marinating or brining required, perfect for busy weeknights or meal prep!

– 3-4 boneless chicken breasts - 2 tbsp olive oil -1 tbsp spice rub for chicken


– Preheat the smoker to 225°F. – Use paper towels to pat the chicken dry. – Apply oil evenly over the entire chicken breast.


Apply the dry rub over the chicken breast and ensure it covers all parts; top, bottom, and sides.

Once the smoker comes up to temperature, place the chicken breasts directly on the preheated grill.

Close the lid and smoke until the internal temperature of the chicken breast, measured in the thickest part of the meat, is 165 degrees F. This will take about 1 hour.

Remove the smoked chicken breasts from the grill and place them on a serving tray. Cover with aluminum foil and rest for 5 minutes to allow the juices to reincorporate into the meat
