How long to BBQ a chicken breast? The short answer is: 10 to 12 minutes a side. The long answer is: "it depends upon the size of the chicken breast". But, twelve minutes for large breasts (no pun intended here!) But, there is a method that works well!
I've barbecued/cooked many chicken breasts, and I found this formula to work very well....no high tech. I let them get a little brown on one side, and then I turn them.
I let it get a little brown on the other side, and then I turn it again. And, I keep turning until I get a nice medium brown on both side. If there is any doubt about doneness use a quality meat thermometer. Should reach 190 degrees.
Enjoy! Like my favorite chef and friend, George Hirsch would say: “Know your fire!”
