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.
  • Oven Directions: Heat oven to 375°F. Line shallow baking pan with foil or spray with cooking spray. Place coated chicken in pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F).
