How to Ensure George Foreman Grill Chicken Breasts Cook Evenly

A few tips and tricks to make sure your chicken breasts cook evenly on an indoor contact grill. First and foremost it is important to preheat your George Foreman grill for at the very least 5 minutes with the lid closed before cooking your boneless skinless chicken breasts.

Second, it is imperative to use a meat mallet to pound your boneless skinless chicken breasts to an even thickness of about 1/2 inch. Pounding your chicken breast not only helps to tenderize the protein for a perfect juicy chicken breast but an even thickness also provides more surface contact with the grill plate.

The more contact your boneless skinless chicken breasts have with the grill surface the more evenly your chicken breasts will cook. The more evenly your chicken breasts cook on the George Foreman grill the less risk portions of your boneless skinless chicken breasts will overcook and dry out while waiting for the thicker parts to cook through.

No meat mallet? No worries! A rolling pin will work in a pinch. Simply place your chicken breasts in a gallon size freezer bag and take out your frustrations from the day. Sometimes I like to double bag the chicken just in case. Safety first people. Always remember your food safety. Handling any raw meat, especially poultry, carries the risk of food bourne illness.

Always make sure to thoroughly wash your hands and sanitize any surfaces your raw meat may have come in contact.
