Notes










Tips

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.
