Hildebrandt grills a large portion of chicken for 10 minutes, but finishes it in the oven for about 10-15 minutes. It's a simple trick, but it gives him that great grill taste while maintaining the chicken's moisture.

Before transferring it to the oven, Mike uses a pair of scissors to cut up the pieces, which is faster and easier than a knife. It also creates strips that can be used in salads, burritos, sandwiches, or whatever your taste buds or recipe calls for. He suggests keeping the cooked chicken pieces on hand so you can easily prepare a perfectly proportioned meal throughout the week.
