  1. Preheat an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan.

  3. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, to tastes, and cook on the grill until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, about 5 on each side. Let the chicken cool down then dice it into bite-size pieces.
