How to Cook Chicken on a George Foreman Grill

Updated February 21, 2017

The traditional George Foreman Grill is a counter-top, electrical kitchen appliance that cooks food quickly. It can cook chicken in less than 10 minutes, with less fat and fuss. A number of George Foreman grills are available, ranging in size and including free-standing grills that can be used outside. Cooking times may vary, depending on the grill and the thickness of the chicken.

  1. Choose boneless, skinless chicken to cook on the George Foreman Grill--boneless breasts, thighs or chicken tenders. Try to stay under an inch thick.

  2. Marinate the chicken or lightly brush it with olive oil. If you use a marinade, drain it off before you add the chicken to the George Foreman Grill.

  3. Preheat the George Foreman Grill for five minutes. If your grill has a temperature setting, refer to your owner's manual or turn the temperature to medium. Keep the lid shut while you are preheating the grill.

  4. Set the trough in place to catch the grease. Many models have a small portable trough under the front portion of the grill to catch any grease overflow.

  5. Open the lid of the George Foreman Grill and spray both sides with non-stick cooking spray.

  6. Place the chicken on the George Foreman Grill, in one layer, and close the lid.

  7. Cook the chicken for five to nine minutes for boneless thighs and breasts, and three to four minutes for chicken tenders. About halfway through the cooking time, lift the grill and test the chicken with a tip of a knife to see if it needs more cooking time.
