Chicken cooked on a contact grill smokes with speed. Grilled chicken is ready in about the same time you use to heat the barbecue sauce!

Ingredients

2
tablespoons Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix (from 1-oz package)
1
teaspoon dried oregano leaves
4
boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb)
1
tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
1/2
cup barbecue sauce
1/4
cup chili sauce
1
teaspoon ground cumin

Directions

  • 1 Heat closed medium-size contact grill for 5 minutes. In shallow bowl, mix taco seasoning mix and oregano. Brush chicken with oil; coat with taco seasoning mixture. Place chicken on grill. Close grill. Grill 4 to 6 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F).
  • 2 Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, heat barbecue sauce, chili sauce and cumin to boiling over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. Serve sauce with chicken.

Expert Tips

Serve sauces on the side when cooking with a contact grill. Because grilling temperatures are high, sauces and glazes burn easily if used during grilling.

For zesty, make-your-own wrap sandwiches, slice the warm chicken into strips and serve with tortillas, shredded lettuce, sliced avocado and the sauce.

Contact grills are indoor-use grills that cook the food between two grids. Both top and bottom grids are heated, so food is cooked from both sides in much less time than conventional grilling.
