Before broiling, bring the chicken back to room temperature. Place an oven rack 6-7 inches from the heat source and preheat the broiler. Line the rack of a broiler pan with heavy duty foil.
Place the chicken on the broiler pan and spoon marinade over the chicken.
Broil for 5 minutes on each side, until the chicken is slightly pink on the inside. Remove from the broiler, cover with the existing foil and let rest for one minute. The chicken will continue cooking.
